How Long To Cook Brats In An Air Fryer

Air Fryer Brats (4 Servings)


  • Four uncooked brats (you may also use however many pieces are included in the package you purchase or however many your air fryer can fit)
  • parchment paper (this is optional equipment)


  1. Arrange the brats in a single layer on the air fryer’s trays or basket.
  2. If you’re using an air fryer that can be used in the oven, wrap the drip pan with parchment paper to collect any leftover grease and make cleanup easy. (this step is optional but advised).
  3. Cook the brats in an air fryer at 375°F for 12-14 minutes, or until you’re sure that they’re thoroughly cooked on the inside (check that they reach an internal temperature of 160°F) and golden brown on the outside. Ideally, the skin of the brats should be firm and crispy, and the interior should be juicy.
  4. Take the brats off the air fryer with tongs and set them aside for a few minutes before serving.

Note that you can also use fully cooked bratwursts for this recipe, but you need to decrease the cooking time by a few minutes. The entire duration of this recipe is 13 minutes, including a prep time of 1 minute and a cook time of 12 minutes. Hence, it’s a quick and easy recipe to adapt, and we’re sure you’ll love the results.
