What are the best sausages to use?

I like to use Italian sausages for this recipe, you can use hot or mild. Flavored with fennel and garlic they are so tasty! You can use other pork or beef sausages, but stay away from thinner sausages.

What do you serve with sausage and peppers?

I love to serve the air fried sausage on peppers on hoagie rolls for a quick and easy dinner, sometimes served up with some French Fries or a veggie side. If you like, you can skip the rolls and serve with a veggie or potato side.

Why use an air fryer for this recipe?

I love how this meal comes together all in one bowl and the cooking process is pretty hands off. The sausages come out perfectly juicy with crispy skins and because the veggies are cooked under them, the veggies are flavored with the juices. It’s one delicious meal!

Recipe Notes and Tips

  • Make a foil sling so that the bowl will be easy to remove from the air fryer.
  • Flip the sausages half way through cooking so that they cook evenly all over.

I have the Philips XXL air fryer and have the roasting pan in the recommended Philips accessory list. The amount of sliced onion and bell peppers far exceeded the capacity of my roasting pan (I have photos if you are interested). I used my ActiFry instead, and the amount of sliced onion and bell peppeers proved a bit too much for that as well. It's a great taste combination, but the ingredients list needs tweaking.

Hi Kathy, I've made this recipe in the Bella Pro 5.3 qt (the air fryer used in the step by step photos) and the Cosori 5.8 qt (the air fryer used in the video). I also own a Phillips XXL air fryer and that basket is not as large as the others. The size of your pepper and onions will also vary depending on many factors. I suggest adjusting the amounts to fit your basket.

I’m going to make these tonight. I don’t have a bowl or pan to fit my air fryer. Any suggestions?

@Tanya, that’s exactly what I did. Thanks for your answer.

Heavy-duty foil paper might work. You can lay it on the bottom.
