Air Fryer Sandwich with Sausage

Date:


This air fryer sausage sandwich is a quick and easy riff on the popular Argentinian street food choripán. For this version, chicken sausage is cooked in the air fryer and topped with parsley, red onion, and garlic chimichurri.

There’s nothing better than a sausage sandwich, and this version, smothered in chimichurri and inspired by Argentinian choripán, will not disappoint!

My Argentinian friends introduced me to this delicious sandwich at one of their backyard parties. It’s typically grilled and served on a crusty baguette, and the sausage is usually chorizo, a mild (not smoked) pork or beef link similar to a sweet Italian sausage, seasoned with only paprika. Here, I used leaner Italian chicken sausage. What really makes this sandwich so delicious is the herby chimichurri. It’s the type of sauce that makes just about everything taste better!

When I make this air fryer sandwich with sausage as a main dish, I like to balance it out with a salad. A garden salad, tomato salad, or even some savory sweet potato wedges would be a great addition here.–Gina Homolka

Air Fryer Argentinian Sausage Sandwich FAQs

What is Argentinian choripán?

True, authentic choripán sausages are made with beef and pork, and contain more fat and calories than the poultry version used below. We think the “skinny” version is pretty darn spectacular, and we didn’t miss the extra fat or calories at all.

Can pre-made chimichurri be used?

Your kitchen, your choice. We don’t judge if you want to use shortcuts because let’s face it, sometimes we all need a timesaver. BUT – we think the fresh flavor of homemade chimichurri is a game-changer in recipes such as this one, where it can be allowed to elevate a relatively simple sausage to superstar level. You can use premade the first go ’round if you’re in a bind, but we suggest trying this sandwich with homemade chimichurri when you have time. Also, chopping fresh parsley will make your kitchen smell like a dream.

Make the chimichurri

  • In a medium bowl, combine the red onion, vinegar, salt, and olive oil. Let it sit for about 5 minutes to mellow out the raw onion.

  • Add the garlic, parsley, pepper flakes, and water and whisk together.

Make the sandwiches

  • Preheat the air fryer to 390°F (200°C).

  • Place the sausages in the air fryer basket and cook until cooked through to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) in the center, 12 to 15 minutes, flipping halfway through. Transfer to a cutting board and slice the sausages lengthwise. Do not turn off the air fryer.

    If you prefer more browning on your sausages, slice lengthwise before air frying. Note that the cook time will be reduced to about 10 minutes.

  • Working in batches if needed, place the bread pieces in the air fryer until warmed through, about 30 seconds. Slice each piece of bread open.

  • Spread 1 tablespoon chimichurri on the bottom of each bread slice, top with one sausage each, then another 1/2 tablespoon chimichurri. Serve immediately.
