We’ve all probably had Lil Smokies coated in BBQ sauce from the crockpot at a party before, right? Well, we’re mixing things up and make smoked sausage in the air fryer and turning it into an easy little snack/appetizer!

We’re not new to smoked sausage in the air fryer around here. We often make smoked sausage with vegetables and eat it all week for lunch. It reheats well, tastes great, and is relatively healthy and so easy!

But air fryer smoked sausage works great as an appetizer too! You get between 15 and 20 bite sized chunks of slightly crispy, smoked sausage with one 14-ounce package.

This is perfect for dipping in some spicy brown mustard or BBQ sauce! Serve it up with dips and toothpicks and enjoy!
