I don’t know about you, but sometimes, cooking breakfast for my family can be a chore. While I often resort to grab-and-go breakfasts during the week, it’s nice to have a hot breakfast on a Saturday or Sunday morning, or, my personal favorite, breakfast for dinner. But the task of cooking scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, and pancakes is daunting after a long work week. But my struggles have ended. I now cook frozen sausages in airfryer.
The Benefits of Cooking Frozen Sausage in Airfryer
First, it’s efficient. In as little as five minutes, I can prepare sausage straight from the freezer in my air fryer. While the sausage is cooking, I can focus on other foods, like scrambling eggs and making the pancakes on the stove. I’m guilty of focusing on too many foods at once, and the results usually include rubbery eggs or charred pancakes.
Second, the air fryer drastically reduces the odor. With stove prep, my house will smell like breakfast sausage all day long. Thanks to the odor reducing properties of air frying, the odor stays inside the air fryer, keeping my kitchen from smelling like sausage.
Third, preparing frozen sausages in airfryer reduces grease. When prepared in the skillet, sausages swim in their own grease and absorb it. The options to remove the grease are limited to blotting with a paper towel. However, in the air fryer, the grease falls into the bottom of the unit, so you can enjoy your breakfast without all the grease.
