Did you know you can cook raw breakfast sausage in the air fryer? Did you know you can cook them from frozen too?

It’s super simple and so good we bought the family back of Jimmy Dean’s sausage patties to enjoy from the freezer anytime we want a quick breakfast option when we don’t have fresh patties on hand.

In this post, I am going to tell you how to make air fryer sausage patties from raw, frozen sausage patties in the air fryer, and even how to reheat the sausage patties in the air fryer!

There’s no oil added making it a healthier choice than frying them in a pan.

This recipe works for breakfast mini sausage patties inside the air fryer. It will not work for Italian sausage patties as they are much larger, but you can make Air Fryer Sausage Sandwiches with links using this recipe.

I cook sausage patties in my Cosori 5.8 QT Air Fryer. We like to cook 8-10 sausage patties at a time and the square basket makes that possible.

How to Cook Fresh Sausage Patties in the Air Fryer

I used a package of Johnsonville raw sausage to cook in the air fryer. This method will work with that brand and any other raw breakfast sausage patties (including Bob Evans, store brands, and more).

Sausage Patties in an Air Fryer
  1. Preheat your air fryer to 370 degrees.
  2. Remove the raw sausage patties from their packaging and place them in one layer in the air fryer.
  3. Cook for 5-7 minutes until its internal temperature reaches 160 degrees, flipping halfway through.
  4. Remove the sausage patties from the air fryer and enjoy immediately or refrigerate for up to 3 days.

I use the Kizen Ready-Read Thermometer. It only takes 1-3 seconds to get a quick read of the temperature, which means I can keep the heat in my air fryer better while checking on my food.
