Air Fryer Smoked Sausage with Vegetables

by Karly

Smoked sausage cooked in the air fryer pairs perfectly with any number of veggies. For this recipe we added broccoli and sweet potatoes for a perfect blend of ingredients in every bite.

I look for easy recipes every chance I get. I’m busy, like most people, and I don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking dinner.

I especially don’t want to spend a lot of time cleaning up dinner.

A go to dinner for us has always been sheet pan meals. We’d toss smoked sausage, broccoli, and sweet potatoes on a sheet pan and bake…easy prep, easy clean up, and everyone loves it!

I swapped out the sheet pan for an air fryer and this recipe is even faster!

Plus, you can mix up the veggies however you like!

We love smoked sausage in our house and I absolutely get cravings for this meal! I like it so much I often eat the left overs for breakfast or brunch the following day. I am telling you, this is a favorite recipe in our house!

We start this one off just like we do our air fryer sweet potato cubes and then just build on the recipe with sausage and broccoli.

How to cook this recipe:

Sweet potatoes – Wash and peel your sweet potatoes. Chop them into cubes. Place them into a bowl and drizzle some oil over them along with the Cajun seasoning. Stir well and pop them in your air fryer for 10 minutes.

Sausage and Broccoli – Slice the sausage into rounds. Add this to your mixing bow alongside some broccoli that has been chopped into florets. Drizzle this with oil and Cajun seasoning also and toss to coat.

Air Fry – Add the smoked sausage and broccoli to the basket that has the partially cooked sweet potatoes in it. Stir it up so everything is mixed a little and then cook it for 5 more minutes.

Substitutions

  • You can make this lower in carbs by swapping the sweet potatoes with cubed butternut squash.
  • Add mushrooms or onions in with the broccoli.
  • Cauliflower, asparagus, zucchini, red peppers all work great in the air fryer. The cauliflower and peppers would cook in the last 5 minutes with the sausage. The asparagus will likely need all 15 minutes and the zucchini should take about 10 minutes.
