These brats will cook for about 15 minutes at 365 degrees.  Once you have them cooking, you will add them to your favorite sub loaf or hot dog bun then serve them up!

Can you use foil in the Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi?

For most of my Ninja Foodi Recipes that use the Air Crisp function or the Air Fryer, you can use foil.  It actually makes things much easier to clean up too, but you do need to make sure you roll up the sides so that you can keep the air circulating.

Can you cook frozen brats in the air fryer?

Brats can be cooked either from frozen or fresh.  If you do them from frozen it may be necessary to add an extra 1-3 minutes at the end of cook time to get them fully cooked.

We like to get the internal temperature to 165*F before serving, this is easy to check with a quick read thermometer
