Air Fryer Sausage & Veggies

We LOVE summer veggies at our house—thank you to the grandparents that have massive, amazing gardens…

Because I can’t grow a thing to save my life…

Even my succulents die ok…

I can hit them with that sweet talk about “please stay alive, you’ll love your new home I promise…” and they’re gone before we get out of the Walmart parking lot…

So when the squash & zucchini started rolling in, my air fryer started getting a workout.

I found the original recipe on Pinterest, but of course I couldn’t just follow a recipe & went to making it fit our preferences.

To make it simple:

You’ll need

•veggies {onion, zucchini, okra, squash, bell peppers, etc. ANY of it would work}

•smoked sausage {Conecuh sausage is our favorite because it’s perfectly sized for the girls’ to bite into}

•seasoning {Kosmos Q SPG & Tony’s are my go to for this, but you could use anything you wanted}

That’s it!

This is such a simple & east all-in-one meal that we love at our house!

Slice your veggies of choice & sausage into nice slivers or bite-sized chunks, dump them into the air fryer basket, toss with seasonings of choice, then cook at 400 degrees for 9 minutes {stir}, repeat, and finish it off with 3-5 minutes depending on how thick your sausage pieces are.

{I prefer to get mine darker on the edges so they’re a little crispy}

This is amazing eaten as a main dish for lunch, side item for supper, or even served over scrambled eggs with shredded cheese for a savory breakfast!

My version this week has a green bell pepper, squash, 2 types of onions, and conecuh sausage with the 2 seasonings I mentioned.

If you need a bit of “carb” in it, homemade hash brown bits are fabulous mixed in.

I do this a lot because of my running— sometimes you just need a good carb to feed your muscles & body in general.

{dice/slice peeled russet potatoes, drizzle with olive oil & SPG, toss so all are coated, then bake on a cookie sheet at 400 degrees for around 30 minutes until you’re happy with the texture & crispiness on the edges}

For prepping purposes, I store this in the 2 compartment meal prep containers from Walmart.

I put the veggies & sausage in the larger portion, then the potato bits in the smaller so they don’t get soggy or lose their flavor from being mixed with onions.

Let me know how you change this up!
