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.

These were amazing, the best I ever made. They reminded me of the sausage sandwiches I used to get at fairs and church bazaars as a kid. The sausages were beautifully browned and so tasty. I was surprised when I opened up the fryer and saw them! Can’t wait to make them again.

Could you use frozen fajata mix bells peppers with onion, layer on botthom and sausage on top?

Tanya

Hi May, yes you can, but you'll probably want to reduce the cooktime of the peppers, so I would just add them in with the sausage at the same time rather than cooking them to soften first.

There is garlic in the ingredients but I don't see it in the directions. Do I add it to the pepper and onions? Thanks!

One of my favorite things to do on my Saturdays off is to get brats at a local stand not far from my house and then go to the park for lunch. The stand didn't open this year because of the virus and I really miss it. I made this recipe this morning and now I will be making these and taking them to the park. The sausages are so good. Thank you for sharing.
