Sausage And Chips

Did you grow up eating sausage and chips? I know I did. It was one of those dream comfort foods and you wish you could eat it every day. Plus, you then could choose what you had it with. Maybe you had it your own, or maybe you upgraded it to include some baked beans or maybe a fried egg too.

Sausage and chips was up there with other great comfort foods too such as scampi and chips, fish finger and chips and of course fish and chips.

So no surprise that those links above all link to… favourite kids meals with chips, but upgraded to the air fryer.

Today, I wanted to show you how easy it is to cook sausages and chips in the air fryer. Easy to make with a simple basket air fryer, or can be made in a larger quantity in the dual air fryer too.

Can I Cook Sausages In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook sausages in the air fryer, and they are delicious. Any type of sausage can be cooked in the air fryer. Chicken sausages, pork sausages, brats, Richmond sausages, vegetarian sausages and the list goes on and on.

What About Cooking Sausages In Ninja Foodi?

Ninja Foodi sausages are delicious and simply follow our air fryer sausages recipe. Then use the air fryer basket of the Ninja and use the air fryer button.

Can I Cook Sausages And Chips Together In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you sure can air fry both the sausages and chips together in the air fryer. But do note, that sausages don’t take as long to cook in the air fryer, compared to the chips. Therefore, we recommend giving the chips a head start in the air fryer first.  

Here is an example of how the time differences vary for when you are making your sausage & chips:

How long do sausages take in an air fryer? Fresh sausage in air fryer takes between 8-12 minutes depending on if they are thin sausages or really thick.

How long do chips take in an air fryer? With chips it often comes back to thickness of the potato too but its usually between 20-25 minutes.

So, if you go by the top end of these sausage and chips cooking times you would give the chips a 13 minute head start, and then cook them both together for the final 12 minutes. You then have sausage and chips in air fryer, done in 25 minutes for your dinner.

Can You Cook Meat And Chips Together In Air Fryer?

Beyond sausages and chips, there are many meat and chips combos that you can cook together in the air fryer. My favourite is not technically chips but air fryer steak bites and potatoes. Though if you love your chips air fryer steak and chips is another amazing one.

Sausage & Chips Ingredients

Sausage & Chips Ingredients

Sausages – We used some thick pork sausages, but you can use any favourite. If you are vegetarian, we recommend Linda McCartney sausages.

Potatoes – Any medium potato will do the trick. Don’t feel you have to use a certain type. Though my go-to is having a bag of red potatoes in the Milner kitchen.

Oil – Of course, you will want some olive oil to make those chips taste amazing. You don’t need a lot though and 1 tbsp is what we usually use for a family of five.

Seasonings – Then for seasoning your sausage & chips we recommend some salt, pepper and dried parsley.

Can You Recommend An Air Fryer?

I often get asked which air fryers I recommend and which one I use. In 95% of our air fryer recipes, we use either the Philips Air Fryer XL or the Cosori XL because they are the best ones, we have found out of many air fryers we have tried over the years. You can click on the links above and read up on them. But if you would rather have a dual air fryer we recommend this Ninja Dual (make sure you order the right one as not all are good) or the Philips Dual.

How To Cook Sausages & Chips In Air Fryer?

  • Prep. Peel and chop your potatoes into chips. Load them into a bowl with the oil and seasonings and mix well with your hands.
  • Cook. Tip the chips into the air fryer basket, spread them out and air fry for 15 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • Add. When the air fryer beeps, shake the chips, and then add the sausages over the chips. Air fry for another 10-12 minutes depending on how brown you like your sausages. Though you can also flip them over halfway through too if you prefer.

Now that is how simple it is to cook air fryer sausages and chips, but what if you want more.

Below are some other ideas for giving your sausage and chips in the air fryer the wow factor.

Sausage, Chips & Beans

Instead of just sausage and chips you can also prepare sausages, chips and beans. To add the baked beans, add them to a little ramekin and when the air fryer beeps, as you portion up your sausage and chips, add the beans for an extra 5 minutes at the same temperature. They will then be warmed through.

Sausage, Egg & Chips

Beyond sausage, beans and chips, you can swap the beans for a fried egg (or two).

To do sausage, egg and chips, you either need to find a space in the air fryer for the egg (whilst the sausage and chips are on its last cook), or cook the egg separately at the end.

Or if you have a Ninja Air Fryer Dual (we have this one), you can do the sync feature and do the egg in one drawer, whilst you do sausage and chips in the other.

Fried eggs in the air fryer take 7 minutes in a silicone cup (follow our air fryer fried eggs guide). So just add the eggs 7 minutes before the end of the recipe and you then have sausage, egg and chips.

Sausage, Egg, Chips & Beans

If you want to combine sausage beans egg and chips, simply follow our steps above, but instead of choosing between the beans and the fried egg choose both! Though this will work better if you have a dual air fryer, otherwise some food will be getting cold, whilst other bits are cooking. Though of course, this depends on the size of your air fryer.

Battered Sausage & Chips

What about battered sausage and chips in the air fryer? Well if you want to enjoy sausage in batter and chips via the air fryer, you will need to go frozen.

This is because the air fryer is not good with batter, unless it is frozen like with our air fryer battered fish and chips. So what we tried was air fryer battered sausage, using the frozen ones from Iceland. You can do the same and then instead of fresh sausages use battered from sausages but keep the same time and temp.

How Long To Cook Sausages And Chips In Air Fryer?

The sausage and chips in air fryer cooking time is 27 minutes. This is based on thick chips and thick pork sausages, so you may wish to adjust if you have smaller sausages or are doing skinny fries.

Sam & Doms Top Tips For Success

We recommend giving the chips a good head start before you add the sausages to the air fryer. Otherwise the chips will need to carry on cooking when the sausages are done.

    … just started using my fryer with help of likes yourselves.
    However after making big mistake with a bin fryer I have an oven fryer. It would be nice to include oven fryer in recipes, there are a couple of considerations but now considering your cookbook though again not sure how oven fryers will work with the enclosed?

    1. Hi Owen,

      Most recipes can be converted from our cookbook but are essentially for a basket air fryer. We have some tips at the beginning for people who have some of the different air fryers but after buying the book if it is not what you are looking for and does not help you you can send it back for a full refund from any of the places that are selling it 🙂

    1. Hi Alan,

      Yes this all depends on thickness of your fries and the thickness of your sausages. Also different air fryers cook things differently, so our timings are for the Philips air fryer XL and are just a guide if you have a different air fryer, but they really should not be that far out 🙂
