Air fryer sausage patties are a great choice that everyone will enjoy when you’d like to add some protein source to the breakfast. Traditionally, sausage patties are cooked pan frying or in the oven. However, to make them in the air fryer is easier and healthier. You can put them in the air fryer and forget about them until you are ready to take them to the plate. Moreover, there are no grease splatters on the stove or in the oven at the end.

Sausage patties are perfect both to make breakfast sandwiches and to eat directly with some side food. When you make sandwiches from them, you can complete the menu with a cold or hot drink. Scrambled eggs, some berries and French bread go well with air fryer sausage patties.
