Baseball is back but since we can’t go watch in person yet I’m showing you how to make these delicious ballpark worthy Air Fryer Brats at home.
To be honest, I prefer football over baseball. But living in Cincinnati, I can’t help but look forward to baseball season every year. And this year especially. I’m just excited for any live sport on television to enjoy at this point. Since visiting a ballpark isn’t an option currently, I’ve been thinking about the food I enjoy while watching a game. Baseball and brats seem to go hand in hand. My air fryer is my go-to for making food that I would normally order out. And (pun intended) my air fryer hit these brats out of the park. Add these Air Fryer Brats with beer braised peppers and onions to your menu this week. Especially if you’re a baseball fan.
How long to cook Air Fryer Brats
Air fryers differ in cooking times and temperatures depending on what make and model you have. I use a Philips XXL Air Fryer in my kitchen. The constant circulation of heated air really cooks the brats perfectly. It’s worth noting that I am using raw brats in this recipe. Not pre-cooked. And so it is imperative for you to check your brats with a meat thermometer before serving them. The brats are safe to eat once their internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F. In my air fryer, the uncooked brats took 12 minutes to cook at 375 degrees F.

Air Fryer Brats with Beer Braised Peppers and Onions
Baseball is back but since we can't go watch in person yet I'm showing you how to make these delicious ballpark worthy Air Fryer Brats at home.
- 5 uncooked beer brats I used Johnsonville
- 1 small sweet onion
- 1 small red bell pepper
- 1 small yellow bell pepper
- 2 tbsp butter
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 1/2 tbsp spicy ballpark or brown mustard
- 1/3 cup light beer
Slice the peppers and onions.
Melt the butter over medium heat.
Add the onions and peppers and cook, stirring occasionally until lightly browned and softened, about 7-8 minutes.
Add the salt, mustard and beer. Stir well to combine.
Turn the heat to medium low and allow to simmer until thickened. Remove from heat and keep warm until ready to serve.
Place the brats in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
Cook at 375 degrees F for 6 minutes. Flip the brats. And cook again for 6 minutes - for a total of 12 minutes.
Check the temperature of the brats with a meat thermometer. Brats are fully cooked when their internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F.
Serve the brats in buns, topped with the beer braised peppers and onions.
