Air Fryer Frozen Sausage Balls

These Air Fryer Frozen Sausage Balls are the perfect appetizer or snack. They are crispy and warm every time, and they are so easy to make with the help of your air fryer or Ninja Foodi!

Sausage balls are a type of bite-sized appetizer or snack traditionally made with pork sausage, Bisquick, and shredded cheese. They are then rolled into balls and baked until golden brown.

These air fryer frozen sausage balls are a great alternative to the traditional oven-baked version. They are just as crispy and delicious, but they are much easier to make, especially when frozen!

The air fryer is the best way to cook frozen sausage balls because it circulates hot air around the food, ensuring that each sausage ball is cooked evenly! There’s also very little electricity used compared to the oven and it won’t heat up the whole house!

🌭What You’ll Need

  • Frozen Sausage Balls – You can find these in the frozen appetizer section of the grocery store. Popular brands include Jimmy Dean, Tennesse Pride, and Tyson.
  • Air Fryer – We love using the Ninja Foodi, but you can use any brand of air fryer you enjoy including the XL, Farberware, Black and Decker, Chefman, and more!

πŸ‘©πŸ»β€πŸ³Air Fryer Cooking Tips for Frozen Food

  • Ensure the air fryer is preheated: This step is important because it will help the frozen sausage balls cook evenly throughout.
  • Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket: Add the frozen sausage balls to the air fryer basket, making sure they are not touching each other. If your air fryer is small, you may need to cook them in batches.
  • Flip the sausage balls halfway through cooking: This will help them cook evenly on all sides.
  • Keep the sausage balls in the freezer until cooking: This will help them retain their shape and not stick together.
  • If you don’t have an air fryer: Frozen sausage balls can be baked in the oven at 400F for 20-25 minutes.
  • Best time and temperature: The exact cook time it takes to air fry frozen sausage balls will depend on how crispy you like them and how big they are. We recommend cooking them at 375F for 12-14 minutes, flipping them halfway through.
