Today, I went with one of my mother’s old recipes that I grew up with and one of my favorites, Air Fryer Italian Sausage Peppers and Onions. All including the roasted peppers and onions prepared in the air fryer.
This is a really great meal for the fall season, it’s nice and hearty, and it can all be done in one air fryer basket or air fryer tray. This a great and easy recipe for air fryer sausage and peppers!
If you have not made this in the air fryer, you are truly missing out on the onions, peppers, and sausage all do wonderfully in the air fryer. They crisp up nicely and make for a great “one-pot meal.”
I lived in Boston, as most of you knew, and every summer, there would be a HUGE feast that would sell Italian sausage, peppers, and onion subs. They are always the hit of the summer.
There is nothing like an Air Fryer Italian Sausage, amazing. If you go to any Italian fair in the summer, especially in the North End of Boston, they are served in rolls, called Hogalies, and they make the perfect lunch or dinner!
If you are looking for even more ideas for a quick and easy dinner, some of my favorite air fryer recipes are AIR FRYER MUSHROOM & SWISS BURGERS, AIR FRYER FLANK STEAK PINWHEELS, AIR FRYER PATTY MELT and AIR FRYER BOURBON BBQ BURGERS.

What Are The Best Sausages and Peppers To Use:
I tend to use various colored bell peppers in my recipes; the reason is simple, they look better. They sell a package of three peppers in my grocery store, usually red, green, and either yellow or orange. Any combination works.
For the sausages, I tend to stick to my roots and use Italian sausage. They come in both hot and sweet. Since I have kids, I usually pick up sweet sausages, but obviously, hot would work the same way.
How long do you cook sausages in the air fryer?
Set the air fryer to 400 degrees F, air fryer setting, and cook until the sausages are completely cooked. The exact time will depend on your air fryer, but the average time is 8-12 minutes.
Use a meat thermometer, to make sure they are fully cooked, as the internal temperature should reach 160 degrees F.
