  • 16 ounce Polish sausage, kielbasa or your choice of rope sausage or link sausages
  • 1/2 large yellow or white onion, sliced in 1-inch pieces
  • 3 bell peppers, any color combination, seeds and stems removed and chopped in 1-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon parsley
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • Pinch of salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Add the sliced sausage, chopped peppers and chopped onions into a large bowl. Add the seasonings and oil into the bowl and use tongs or two large spoons to toss everything together until the sausage and peppers are coated evenly
  2. Add the sausage and peppers into your air fryer basket or air fryer rack. Depending on the size of your air fryer you may need to do this in batches. The sausage and peppers don’t need to be in just a single layer, but it shouldn’t be stacked up very high either
  3. Cook on 400 for 12 minutes, using the tongs to toss halfway through the cook time. If you’d like the sausage or peppers to be more crisp, cook for two additional minutes
  4. Once done, carefully remove from the air fryer. Season with any additional garlic, salt and pepper if desired before serving
