  • 6 bratwursts (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 spray olive oil spray


  • Spray the inside of your air fryer basket with olive oil spray. You can skip this step if your air fryer is non-stick!
  • Place the brats in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry at 350 F / 180 C for about 10 minutes, flipping them once about halfway through. The sausages should be golden brown on the surface.
  • Use a meat thermometer to ensure that the internal temperature of the bratwurst reach 160 F / 71 C.



  • Store leftover cooked brats in a refrigerator for up to 2 days.
  • Frozen brats: Add an extra 5 minutes to the cooking time.
