Air Fryer Brats

Beer. Butter. Brats. Onion. Garlic.

That is all I need for our fave preparation for brats before grilling, or, in this case, popping ’em in the air fryer for 15 or 20 minutes (though, air fryers will vary, so check on how yours are doing the first time you make them). And, you know what?

I may relieve my husband of firing up the grill for a batch o’ brats, because these turned out pretty darned stellar, if I do say so myself.

•Beer (enough to cover the brats)
•2 tbsp butter
•1 sweet onion, coarsely sliced
•1 clove garlic, minced

Note 1: we used these queso flavored sausages, but feel free to use your fave.

Note 2: for just the two of us, one package was more than enough. If you are cooking for a crowd, add more beer, butter, onion, and garlic.

Pierce the sausage skin a couple of times with a fork and add to a pan big enough to hold the amount you are prepping.

Add beer to cover (I do not like to cook with “Lite” beers, but you do you), then the butter, onion, and garlic.

Bring to a boil and simmer for mebbe 20 minutes, until the sausages are cooked through.

Preheat your air fryer to 350º and place a piece of parchment paper on the tray.

Remove the sausages and onion slices from the cooking liquid and arrange on the parchment paper.

Note: the fan in the air fryer is gonna try and lift those parchment paper edges up, so try to arrange your sausages around the edges with the onion in the center.

As always, depending on how many sausages you are making and the size of your air fryer, you may need to do this step in stages.

Cook the sausages for ten minutes, until nicely browned on one side, and then turn over and cook for another five to ten minutes (again, depending on your air fryer), until they look like this.
