How to Serve

Cooking kielbasa sausage in the air fryer is a quick and easy way to achieve delicious, crispy results. Serve your air fryer kielbasa with potatoes, onions, or sauerkraut. Here are some tips and tricks to help you make the perfect air-fried kielbasa sausage:

  • Slice the kielbasa into even pieces, about 1-2 inches thick. This ensures they cook evenly and get crispy on all sides.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 380°F for about 3-5 minutes before adding the kielbasa. This ensures the sausages start cooking immediately and helps them get crispy.
  • Place the sliced kielbasa in the air fryer basket in a single layer, making sure they are not touching. This allows the hot air to circulate and cook them evenly. Cook in batches to avoid overcrowding the air fryer basket.
  • While kielbasa is already flavorful, you can enhance it by sprinkling with your favorite seasonings like paprika, garlic powder, or a dash of cayenne pepper before cooking.

Storing and Reheating Leftovers

Store any leftover sausage in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three days. Reheat the portion you plan to eat in your air fryer at 350 degrees for 2-3 minutes until heated through.
