Bacon And Sausage

When we go to a nice café, I always order a bacon and sausage butty. It’s like I can’t decide between bacon and sausage and want a bit of both.

Dom and the kids are the same.

We don’t even bother looking at the menu just order four bacon and sausage sandwiches.

If you’re the same, then note you can air fry bacon and you can air fry sausages and make yourself a delicious bacon and sausage butty.

Even better, use our air fryer part baked recipe and tips and warm up your favourite crusty rolls in the air fryer to have with it.

Can You Cook Bacon And Sausage In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook bacon in the air fryer, and you can also cook sausages in the air fryer.

Let’s talk about bacon in the air fryer first. We use back bacon which takes a little longer to get crispy, or you can swap this for streaky bacon and its much quicker to get its crisp. The air fryer doesn’t require any oil to make crispy bacon and you can just load the bacon into the air fryer and then let the air fryer do the hard work.  

Now let’s talk about sausages in the air fryer. We prefer to air fry the thick Cumberland style sausages that you get from the butchers. But you can do thin sausages or Italian sausages or smoked sausages. Just note if the sausages are thinner, they will take less time to cook than ours.

Can You Cook Sausage & Bacon Together?

Yes, you can cook sausage and bacon together, but note that if you have streaky bacon and thick sausages, the bacon will be ready before the sausages.

Also note, that you might find that you lack space and when this happens, I will put the bacon under the sausages then swap it around to then crisp up the bacon.

Can You Put Raw Bacon In An Air Fryer?

Yes, you can put raw bacon in the air fryer, and we have done this numerous times and it has worked perfectly every single time.

Though of course, some bacon rashers are higher in fat than others and this can result in the air fryer smoking.

Fry Up In Air Fryer

If you are looking to transform the air fryer sausages and bacon into fry up in the air fryer, then we can help with this too.

We created what we call our air fryer English breakfast which has sausages, bacon, black pudding, scrambled eggs and much more. All cooked in the air fryer basket.

Or if you are starting out with the air fryer you can cook our air fryer sausages and bacon first, then progress to an air fryer English Breakfast.

Sausage And Bacon Recipe Ingredients

Sausages And Bacon In Air Fryer

Sausages – You just need four thick Cumberland sausages. Or if you have thin sausages, you can expand this to 6.

Bacon – Then the same quantity of bacon. We did four bacon rashers to match our four sausages.

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 And Rashers In Air Fryer?

  • Load. Place the sausages to one side of the air fryer and the bacon rashers to the other.
  • Cook. Next cook the sausages and bacon for 8 minutes at 180c/360f.
  • Turn. Then using tongs turn the bacon and sausages and air fry for a further 4 minutes at 200c/400f or until crispy to your liking.

Bacon In Air Fryer 200 Degrees

We find (especially with English back bacon) that you need to cook bacon in the air fryer at 200 degrees (400f) as this helps crisp it up with it being leaner bacon.

If I was just cooking bacon on its own (no sausages) I would be cooking the bacon at 200c for the whole time so that I can focus on that crisp.

Sausages. Please note we had regular thick sausages that we air fried. If yours are thin they will only need a final cook of 8 minutes instead of 12.
