Spicy Homemade Breakfast Sausage in the Air Fryer


There is too much sage flavor in store-bought breakfast sausage so this is the homemade version I came up with. It's fresh, simple, and store-bought doesn't even compare!

8 sausage patties


  • 1 pound ground pork

  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

  • 1 teaspoon rubbed sage

  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper

  • ½ teaspoon onion powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • ¼ teaspoon dried thyme


  1. Preheat an air fryer to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C).

  2. Combine ground pork, sea salt, sage, red pepper, marjoram, onion powder, pepper, and thyme in a large bowl. Mix with your hands well until evenly combined. Form mixture into 8 patties.

  3. Place 4 patties in the basket of the air fryer and cook for 5 minutes. Carefully flip the patties and cook for 5 minutes more. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and repeat with remaining patties.
