We also love to use them for homemade McGriddle and in our pork sausage and cheese sliders or the sausage, egg and cheese sliders.
How to store and reheat
Cooked sausages can be kept in the fridge for up to 3 days. Let the sausages cool completely before storing in an airtight container. This is best for sausages cooked from raw. If air frying fully cooked sausages which means you are technically reheating the sausages, I would recommend you reheat the quantity you need at a time.
To reheat simply place on a paper towel lined microwave safe plate and microwave at 20 secs intervals till warmed through.
Air fryer reheating is super easy too. Set temperature to 350°F / 180°C for 3 to 5 mins or till sausages are warmed through.
