How to air fry Johnsonville Bratwurst

Johnsonville Brats Original Bratwurst

  2. Cook for 8 minutes at 400F, turn half way through

This recipe is based of using the COSORI Air Fryer (5.8QT model, affiliate link).

Using the above directions I managed to cook these Johnsonville Brats comfortably past the 160F degree mark (the recommended temp on the package). The interior was still exceptionally juicy and the brats had a great crisp and char.

I will caution that these sausages still retained a slight pink tinge down the very center of the brat, despite being well past temp. As always, use care and caution when cooking raw meat products and invest in a good thermometer (see below).
