How Long to Air Fry Frozen Jimmy Dean Breakfast Sandwiches?

Time will vary depending on the size of your air fryer and how strong it is. Also, each sandwich has a different bread so timing will vary about 1-2 minutes. But in general, it takes about 6-8 minutes at 340°F when it’s cooked from frozen. Air Fry it first for about 6 minutes, then check the sandwich. If it’s still cold in the center, then air fry for about another 1-2 minutes or until it’s cooked to your liking.

  • Pro Tip: to make sure the english muffin sandwiches air fry all the way through the center, we split the sandwich. Separate the top and bottom of the sandwich so the frozen meat is exposed. Air frying will cook the meat all the way through. If there is cheese, flip the filling with the cheese, so the cheese is touching the English muffin (sometimes the cheese will fly off if it is on the top of the filling). Air fry the sandwich until everything is nicely heated through. Then close the sandwich and air fry for about another minutes to make the bread warm and crisp. cook frozen breakfast muffin sandwich
  • If you just put the whole frozen sandwich in the air fryer, it’ll burn on the outside. The outside cooks before the center frozen meat does. So that’s why we separate the sandwich and air fry the center first.

Adjust timing as needed. Air fryer brands all cook a bit different, and freezer temps will vary.
For best and even cooking, don't cook too many at once and overcrowd the basket. Once you cook your first sandwich, you’ll know more of what works for your model of air fryer and size of food. These were tested on basket style air fryers. Read more recipe notes below the recipe. Nutrition will depend on individual sandwich.

Air Frying Tips and Notes:
  1. No Oil Necessary. Cook Frozen – Do not thaw first.
  2. Don’t overcrowd the air fryer basket.
  3. Recipe timing is based on a non-preheated air fryer. If cooking in multiple batches of sandwiches back to back, the following batches may cook a little quicker. 
  4. Recipes were tested in 3.7 to 6 qt. air fryers. If using a larger air fryer, they might cook quicker so adjust cooking time.

If your air fryer is preheated or if you are cooking multiple batches, you may need to reduce timing by a few minutes (unless preheating is called for in the recipe).
