Vegetarian alternate: There are plant-based sausages available at many grocery stores. Choose them if you want a healthy vegetarian alternative.

Olive oil: Olive oil is a healthy option to incorporate fat in the meal and it also makes the crust golden.

How to Make Air Fryer Kielbasa?

1: Prepare the sausages

prepare Kielbasa sausage

Before starting, preheat the air fryer at 400F. Meanwhile, prepare the sausages.

Start by making a slit in each sausage lengthwise to ensure better cooking. Add salt and pepper as per taste. If you want to season them with herbs and seasonings, now is the time. Add your preferred seasonings and let the sausages sit for 10 minutes.

Note: If you want to serve these as a topping for pizza or omelets, you can also slice them.

Using an oil brush, apply olive oil to the sausages.

2: Air frying the sausages

Layer the sausages in the air fryer basket. Make sure that they are placed with adequate space in between. If you have a large quantity, air fryer them in 2 batches.

Airfry the Kielbasa sausages for at least 5 minutes.

Check the sausages. If they have a nice golden crust, they are done. You can air fry for another 2 to 3 minutes if they are you like a more rich color of the crust.

Serve them on a serving platter along with your favorite dips.
