How to Make the BEST  Air Fryer Brats

Step 1: Pierce the Brats with a Fork

Poking holes into the skin of the brats will help prevent them from bursting while cooking.

Step 2: Marinate Brats in Beer

A traditional beer-brat recipe, soaking the brats in beer will give the brats a hoppy flavor. Refrigerate anywhere from 30 minutes or up to 6 hours.

Step 3: Season Brats before Cooking

Drain off the beer, then lightly season the brats with ground pepper and garlic powder.

Step 4: Air Fry the Brats

Preheat your air fryer to 390. Then cook the brats for 5 minutes. Turn over and cook for another 5 minutes.

Step 5: Add Toppings

Serve the brats in Bavarian pretzel or Brioche rolls. Top with mustard, sauerkraut and/or sauteed onions.

Serve and Enjoy!

Brats are fantastic served with corn on the cob, potato salad or pasta salad.
