Air Fryer Tailgate Sausages Recipe

Air Fryer Tailgate Sausages Recipe

I love these sausages, not only for their fantastic taste, but also because I can make them ahead of time and keep them refrigerated until it’s time to cook.



  • 4 slices provolone cheese
  • 4 brat buns or hot dog buns, split
  • 4 cooked Italian sausage links
  • ½ cup giardiniera, drained

Preheat air fryer to 350°. Place cheese in buns; top with Italian sausages and giardiniera. Wrap individually in heavy-duty foil (about 12x10 in.). Place in a single layer in air fryer. Cook until heated through and cheese is melted, 8-10 minutes. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. If desired, serve sausages with additional giardiniera.

Giardiniera is a medley of pickled vegetables, most commonly cauliflower, carrots, celery, onions, bell peppers and serrano or jalapeno peppers. It’s often eaten as a condiment on sausages, hot dogs or Italian beef sandwiches.
