Key Ingredients You Need
- Sausage — I like to use either chicken or pork sausages, but feel free to have fun with this! There are so many different sausages and flavors to choose from. A smoky or spicy sausage is a great option as well.
- Potatoes — I’m using a russet potato, but you can use any variety you have on hand; you can even use a sweet potato if that’s all you have on hand.
- Bell peppers — I use red and orange bell pepper as they’re sweet. If you use green bell pepper, it’ll be much less sweet.
- Oil — I use olive oil, but you can use any neutral oil, such as avocado oil.
- Seasoning — I’m keeping things simple by using garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, dried thyme, salt, and pepper. However, you can use any blend of spices you’d like.
How to Make Air Fryer Sausage and Vegetables
Step 1: Slice the sausage into ½” rounds.
Step 2: Quarter the potatoes into pieces no larger than ½” thick.
Step 3: Slice the bell peppers, red onion, and zucchini.
Step 4: Add all of the ingredients into a large mixing bowl.
Step 5: Toss to combine.
Step 6: Transfer the contents of the mixing bowl into the air fryer basket and cook at 375 F for 13 to 16 minutes, tossing halfway through the cooking time. Serve with a side of white or brown rice
Tips For This Recipe
I advise getting a decent grade sausage wherever feasible. superior quality sausages are created from superior cuts of meat, so they cook better in the air fryer.
Make careful to chop the veggies into similar-sized pieces, so they cook evenly.
Tossing the sausage and veggies in the air fryer midway will help them become crispy on all sides.
You may chop the meat and veggies ahead of time. Once chopped, you may store them in an airtight container in the fridge for a couple of days before air frying them.
To ensure the sausage is properly cooked, you may use a meat thermometer to confirm that the interior temperature has reached 160F.
If you wish to use completely cooked sausage, add them to the air fryer towards the end to crisp them up.
