- Kielbasa- This is my favorite sausage for this recipe but you can use another
- Potatoes- Any potatoes will work as long as they are cut down to the right size
- Sweet onion- You can use yellow onions too.
- Red pepper- Any color pepper will work or use a spicy pepper for a bit of a kick
- Spray Olive Oil- This helps everything get crispy
- BBQ Sauce- I like to use my homemade BBQ sauce, or TGI Fridays and Country Bob’s for store bought.
- Seasoning – I like to use Garlic salt, Seasoned salt, and Seasoned Pepper
How to Make Air Fryer Sausage and Potatoes
Clean the potatoes and peppers and set them aside. Then peel the onion.
Slice the kielbasa into 1/8 inch pieces and place then in the Air Fryer tray.
Cut the potatoes, onion and peppers into bite sized pieces and place them in the Air Fryer too.
Spray everything with olive oil spray and toss them lightly.
Season everything and then drizzle the BBQ sauces over top.
Cook in the Air Fryer for 15 minutes at 250 degrees, turning everything about half way through.
When done cooking, stir again, drizzle with a bit more sauce and serve in large bowls or on serving plates.
Do I Have to use Kielbasa Sausage?
If you can not find kielbasa sausage or simply have another type of sausage you like more, you can swap the type of sausage you like. You can use a different sausage every time you make it so that each time tastes like a brand new meal.
What Size Air Fryer do I Need?
The size of the Air Fryer doesn’t matter. It is most important to make sure that you are setting everything in a single layer. If it does not fit in a single layer when you are making this, you can work in several batches.
