- Preheat Air Fryer: Preheat the air fryer to 390 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Add Patties to Basket: Then add the frozen sausage patties to the bottom of the air fryer basket in a single layer. Cook more or less depending on the size of your patties. Also spray with non-stick cooking spray if you want them crispy.
- Air Fry: Close the basket and cook in the air fryer for 4 minutes flipping the sausage halfway through the cooking process. Then cook an additional 4 minutes or until it reaches desired crispiness.

Here are a few tips and tricks to keep in mind so your air fried sausage patties turn out as delicious as possible!
- Cook a Single Layer at a Time: Again, air flow is crucial for air fried foods to cook through properly. Only cook a single layer at a time with plenty of space in between each patty. Patties stacked on top of each other may remain frozen or undercooked.
- Easy Cleanup: Try using air fryer liners! They’re so convenient! You can just throw them away when you’re done cooking your sausage patties, without having to scrub away oil and grime.

If you have leftover sausage patties, keep them in the fridge in an airtight container. They will stay good for up to 4 days. Reheat in the microwave, in a skillet over medium heat, or the air fryer for a few minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
