You can feel good about feeding air fryer sausage and peppers to your family because it’s made entirely with fresh ingredients and a handful of spices.

Plus, it’s very hands-off which leaves you time to help with homework or get other things done.

For another easy sausage and potatoes recipe, try this slow cooker casserole! It’s deliciously cheesy and simple to throw together at the last minute.

Or, change things up with any one of these skillet meals made with ravioli, drop biscuits, or spicy Mexican corn and peppers

Sausage Dinner Recipe - Tips and Tricks

  • Change up the vegetables. Swap out the broccoli for cauliflower, zucchini, carrots, or snap peas. I’ve even left it out altogether! It still tasted great, but wasn’t quite as hearty.
  • Don’t forget to stir! Mixing everything up around the halfway mark ensures that each piece of food is cooked evenly.
  • Tip for easy cleanup: If your model allows, line the bottom of the basket with some parchment paper. Leave space around the edges for better circulation or poke a few holes to line up with the ones in the metal.
  • Want it to be spicier? Add a little extra pepper or some red chili flakes to the mixture. You could even throw in some chopped jalapeƱo if you would like!

Serving Suggestions

While this sausage and potatoes recipe is wonderful on its own, you could spoon it over some rice to make it more filling.

Adding a starch is also a helpful way to stretch the meal further when you have a lot of people to feed!

Some homemade rolls or garlic knots would be a wonderful side dish as well.

FAQ‌ ‌-‌ ‌Common‌ ‌Recipe‌ ‌Questions‌ ‌

Is there a way for this sausage dinner recipe to be ready faster?

You can reduce all of the ingredients by half so it’s done in 20 to 25 minutes, but then it will only serve two people.

Can I use frozen vegetables instead?

Yes, but you will need to thaw them first or increase the overall cooking time to ensure they are warmed through.

It may also help to chop frozen broccoli into smaller pieces so they don’t take as long to cook.

How long will air fryer sausage and peppers last in the fridge?

Store leftovers in an airtight container and use within 3 to 4 days for best results.

Because it will keep for several days, it’s a great option if you are meal prepping for yourself.

Spoon out one serving for dinner and divide the remainder evenly between your containers. Adding some cooked rice should get it to last the rest of the week!

  1. Any way this can be done in the oven. My air fryer always set off my smoke alarms - all 5 of them. I sold it.
