We absolutely love having a hot breakfast on weekends in my home. There is just something about waking up after a lay-in, climbing down the stairs and knowing you can have some hot and tasty food alongside your iced coffee. These air fryer sausage patties are one of my daughters favourite breakfast foods, probably because they closely replicate the ones you get from the golden arches!

Sometimes we like to order a nice takeaway breakfast in, usually from McDonalds, but it has become so much more expensive recently. When we priced up a family breakfast and it was almost £30 delivered I knew we had to break the habit! Now we’re enjoying making lots more hot breakfast foods at home, and they come a close second to be honest.

These sausage patties are great either in an air fryer english muffin or as part of a bigger breakfast with pancakes and syrup. I sometimes cook them up for a breakfast grazing platter too.

Sometimes I will cook these up and then layer in an air fryer grilled cheese – this is the perfect comfort food breakfast and great the morning after a night out.

My air fryer is one of my favourite kitchen gadgets. I love cooking and the air fryer really helps to speed things up for me. I love to cook up air fryer baconair fryer hash browns, air fryer sausages or these sausage patties, for a tasty cooked breakfast! These sausage patties also go great in a bacon, sausage and egg wrap

Ingredients for air fryer sausage patties:

6 frozen sausage patties – I love to use these ones from Tesco or ones from Aldi

Spray oil if the sausage patties are very lean or you are using vegetarian ones (I didn’t use any for this recipe)

You can make your own raw sausage patties by using a sausage, removing the skin, moulding into a ball shape and then pressing down firmly in between two plates or cutting boards.

How to cook air fry sausage patties: 

Set your air fryer to 190C (375F approx) and leave it on for a couple of minutes to pre heat.

Place your sausage patties in the air fryer basket in a single layer.

Air fry for 5-6 minutes turning once during the cooking process.

Keep a close eye near the end of the cooking time to ensure that they don’t burn as they turn from brown to burnt VERY fast!

I use a *meat thermometer to ensure they are cooked through thoroughly.

In total the pictured sausage patties were cooked for 6 minutes as I love the well cooked finish when having a sausage patty sandwich or cooked breakfast! 

Serve with your favourite breakfast foods or in a tortilla wrap with tomato ketchup.

Want to add some vegetables in while cooking? 

I find that peppers, onions and roasted tomatoes work really well for the cooking time of this dish.

With the peppers and onions I slice them into wedges and at the halfway mark I turn them over, just to ensure that they are cooked evenly.

Timings wise it works well with the sausage patties and they have a lot of flavour to them when serving too.

Can you cook sausage patties in the Ninja Foodi?

Yes! I use the Ninja Foodi OL750UK myself, and I love to use the air frying function.

What are the best air fryer sausage patties?

They’re all much of a muchness. Usually I buy sausages with a high meat quantity, but with sausage patties you won’t always find these.

All of the supermarket ones seem similar, from the taste tests we’ve carried out!

Turkey breakfast sausage patties are my favourite, but they are usually quite hard to find in the UK!

Here are some of my favourite air fryer cookbooks and accessories: 

Something to note about air fryer recipes is that all air fryers have different sizes, depths and as such the cooking times can vary. All air fryer recipes on this website are intended as a guide, and not a guarantee that the timings will be perfect. Enjoy!
