Air Fryer One Pan Sausage & Peppers

I love when I make something after a long day of work and then realize it's so good I have to share it with you! You see - most of my recipes I plan out and think through and prepare for - but not this one - this was a pure magical accident! 
Who doesn't love sausage & peppers? I wanted to make a one-pan meal in my air fryer and that I did! I added some extras to make it complete - crispy crowns, mushrooms and some of my favorite seasoning! 

How to cook sausage and peppers in the air fryer?

It's so easy it's stupid - you put everything in the air fryer - turn it to 350 and start. That's it!!! The nice thing about this is that everything cooks together and at the same rate. The crispy crowns (or tater tots) take the longest time - but it's all good. I've been making sausage in the air fryer since I got it! (My favorite are cheddar metts/smoked sausage!) 

I always sprinkle my favorite Taco Johns Potato Ole Seasoning over the sausage and peppers. If you don't have that - you can also use the "fry seasoning" from Freddy's or Steak and Shake, taco seasoning or even Lawry's seasoning salt. Anything that adds some extra zing! 

I also always have Freddy's Fry Sauce in my fridge as well and love to top this dish with my fry sauce. You wouldn't believe how the dogs drool while I eat this - it's everybody's favorite! ;-) 

What are other dinner air fryer recipes?

I use my air fryer 3-4 nights a week! I've made Shrimp Taco Salad, Garlic Parmesan Chicken Wings, Ham & Cheese with Tomato Sandwiches, Steak & Veggie Bites and more. You can find all of them in my Air Fryer Recipes section or in my Air Fryer Facebook group!
