  • 16 oz smoked or Polish sausage
  • 1 cup sliced yellow onion
  • ½ cup chopped green bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped red bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped yellow bell pepper
  • ¼ cup chopped orange bell pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper


  • Slice sausage into ¼" thick disks. Place in a large mixing bowl.
  • Chop peppers and onion into 1" pieces. Place in a bowl with sausage.
  • Drizzle oil over sausage and veggies. Sprinkle seasoning and toss everything to coat.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 385° F.
  • Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook in batches. Arrange sausage and veggies in the air fryer basket (it does not have to be in a single layer, but don't overcrowd it either).
  • Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through cooking cycle.
  • Remove food from air fryer and let it cool slightly.
  • Season with more salt and pepper if needed and serve.


  • To reheat leftovers: pop them back into the air fryer for 2 minutes to reheat.
  • You can add mushrooms, zucchini, squash, sweet potatoes, etc to the veggie mix.
  • You can use chicken instead of sausage; just cut it into bite-size pieces.
