Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large yellow or white onion sliced
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground mustard optional
  • 1 package bratwurst

Instructions

  • Melt butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the sliced onion and cook for 5 minutes. Mix in the salt and ground mustard.
  • Turn the heat down to medium-low and cook the onions for at least 30 minutes, stirring occasionally to avoid burning. If the onions look like they are getting too dark, add a tiny bit of water to the pan. Cook the onions until golden brown in color.
  • While the onions are cooking, preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees F.
  • Place the sausages in the air fryer and cook for 12-15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Pork sausages should be cooked to an internal temperature of 160 degrees F and chicken sausages to 165 degrees F.*
  • Take the brats out of the air fryer and let them rest for 5 minutes. Serve in hot dog buns topped with caramelized onions and spicy mustard.

Notes

*NOTE: Precooked brats will be done in about 10 minutes and uncooked brats will take at least 15 minutes, possibly 20.
