This Air Fryer Sausage and Peppers dish is made with sweet and spicy sausages, bell peppers, onions and air fried to crispy goodness.
This air fryer sausage recipe is so delicious because it leaves the sausage to be crispy but juicy on the inside. It is so quick and everything is made in the air fryer, which makes clean up so much easier. It is a great weeknight dinner. I have been so obsessed with my air fryer and have been making so many different recipes with it. Since I live in NYC, I don’t have access to a grill, especially in the winter. Luckily, the air fryer creates a similar taste, creating a perfectly brown crispy sausage. I love this meal because it is nutritious and keto friendly.
What you will need
Sausage: I love using Italian sausage for this, with a combination of some being spicy and some being sweet.
Bell pepper: You can use any color of bell pepper you desire. I used one green and one red pepper, because I love how colorful it makes the dish.
Onion: You can use any type of onion. Traditionally, this dish uses yellow onion, although white or red onion would work too.
Olive oil: I love using my olive oil spray whenever I make anything in the air fryer. It creates a much lighter feeling and it is so delicious.
How to make Air Fryer Sausage and Peppers

Add the sliced onions, bell peppers, and sausage into the air fryer. Spray olive oil and salt and toss to combine.
