Air Fryer Sausage Skewers are a simple to make breakfast recipe that everyone will love.
AIR FRYER SAUSAGE SKEWERS RECIPE
This is such a fun recipe for sausages on a stick wrapped with crispy crescent dough. If this isn't the best way to cook breakfast sausage in the air fryer, I'm not sure what is! Kids and adults love these and they're perfect for dipping into maple syrup, ketchup or a perfectly runny egg yolk.
Air Fryer Sausage Skewers let you turn an otherwise simple breakfast food into a fun and exciting one. These work well for on the go. You can also serve these on a breakfast or brunch buffet along with Air Fryer Breakfast Potatoes and Air Fryer Bacon. Pop the sticks into a sturdy glass for a beautiful presentation.
INGREDIENTS IN AIR FRYER SAUSAGE SKEWERS
Fresh Sausage Links- Maple flavored breakfast sausage links are my favorite, and delicious in this recipe.
Maple Syrup - This adds sweetness and also helps the dough to stick to the sausages.
Pillsbury Crescent Rolls - We'll be slicing these into strips and wrapping them around the sausages.
Skewers - Six or eight inch skewers are needed for this recipe, as most air fryers aren't large enough to fit the 10 or 12 inch ones made for grilling. You can buy a pack of Skewers here for a few dollars.

HOW TO MAKE BREAKFAST SKEWERS IN THE AIR FRYER
- Put one skewer into each sausage link, making sure they are on there well. Set aside.
- Lay your crescent roll dough out flat. Using a pizza cutter or a sharp knife, cut thin strips. Don't worry if some of the pieces are smaller, you can combine them to make longer strips.
- Dip your basting brush in the maple syrup and spread maple syrup over the crescent strips.
- Take a crescent strip and wrap it around the sausage diagonally. Repeat for each skewer.
- Spray your air fryer with oil or line with parchment paper to prevent sticking. Air Fry as directed until crescent dough is golden brown and sausages are cooked fully
- Serve immediately and enjoy!

WHAT TO SERVE WITH BREAKFAST SAUSAGE SKEWERS
CAN I MAKE SAUSAGE SKEWERS WITH FROZEN SAUSAGE
I haven't tried it, but usually frozen sausages are precooked. Cooking them this way would probably overcook the sausages before the dough on the outside is finished. Save this recipe for the fresh ones!
This recipe was made in a Cosori Air Fryer with a Basket. The recipe should work in other air fryers.
Keep in mind that each air fryer runs differently, it is important to check your food often.
