Air Fryer Sausages With Roasted Apples and Butternut Squash
The air fryer does an amazing job at roasting up the Italian sausages in this recipe. Then I added some great easy and complimentary items to this sheet pan dinner.
I love roasted apples and love roasted squash, so they were the natural items to pair Italian sausages well. Still, you could add some roasted potatoes, if you wanted to, be sure to make them about the same size as the other vegetables, so they all air fry together.
- Italian Sausage, hot or mild
- Butternut Squash
- Olive Oil
How To Make Air Fryer Sausages With Roasted Apples and Butternut Squash
Start by cutting up the vegetables, and apples, then add them into the air fryer basket. Add in the Italian Sausages on top. Spray the vegetables and apples with some cooking spray.
Set the temperature to 350 degrees F, air fryer setting, for 10 to 12 minutes. Shake the basket frequently during the cooking process.
Check the sausage’s internal temperature before removing it; it should be 160 degrees F before removing it.
Garnish with fresh sage.
Note: The Sage was not cooked, it was there for the picture.
