    Sausage & Peppers 2 Ways (New Sauce)

    Having problems right now, so I’m limited in my mobility, so I’m making some more Fresh Sausages in my AirFryer.
    The AirFryer is Hands down my best way of making Sausage without Smoking it.

    Whenever I made Sausage on the Grill, I had trouble getting the inside done, without burning the outside. I used to get them partially done, and then slice them almost in half, and lay the inner side down on the grill to finish.

    When I made them in the Frying Pan, they would splatter the whole place up.

    However when I make them in the AirFryer, all I do is poke holes in them with a fork, and spread them out in the Basket, and set it for 360° for 14 minutes. Then at 7 minutes, I pull the drawer out & flip them all over. Put it back in & it starts up right where it left off. If they aren’t Brown enough I just give them another minute or 90 seconds. Then they’re Perfectly done, inside & out—No burning or splatter.

    The only other way I used to like doing Fresh Sausage is in my Old “Showtime” Rotisserie, but my cord heats up badly, so I won’t use it again unless I find a heavier cord for it.

    So as you’ll see in the Pics below I made my first 2 in a Roll in one piece, and the second night I sliced the sausages in pieces, and laid them out with Sauce, Hot Peppers, and Melted Swiss Cheese. Nice Open-face Sammy!

    BTW: We tried a new sauce on these. It’s from the same company that we’ve been getting our “Cheesesteak Sauce” for many years. It’s called “Tallarico’s Peppers in Sauce”. It’s pretty darn good stuff, just like their Cheesesteak Sauce!!

    That’s about it—The rest is in the captions above each Picture, below.


    First side almost done:

    All Done, with nice "even" light browning:

    Adding some of our Newly Found "Peppers In Sauce" from Tallarico's: (Great Stuff!)

    Closer look at that sauce with the pieces of Peppers:

    I just had to try this "Open-Face" Idea I had:

    With Melted Swiss & Hot Peppers. Need a Fork for this one!!

    Thank You Zippy!!
    Air Fryer works Great.

    In this case it was mostly a Total Screw-up by one Idiot Dr that did me in!
    He could have screwed up a Young Guy just as good.

    that looks DELICIOUS Bear!

    I love fresh sausage too!

    and I hear you about cooking them.
    I started steaming them first in a frypan with a lid.
    I use about 1/4c water, then let 'er rip on medium heat until the water is gone.
    By that time, there is enough grease rendered to slick up the pan and the sausage will brown and not stick badly.
    Then one turn, and back goes the lid to reduce spatter.
    Once the other side is brown, they are done.

    At work, I've used the toaster oven, but it got a bit hot.....

    I'm researching the AirFryers.
    I think we can get them locally here.

    I really can't wait to get an air fryer for stuff like this! The only way I can achieve 'perfect' sausage is beer boiled brats, but I don't really enjoy boiling any thing then grilling it..seems Bear has found the solution!

    Is that like sports peppers or wake you up hot sauce? I got some Pepper jam and now I wanna slather it on some hotdogs or some thing..

    I love my smoked sausage boiled. Grew up on it with perogies!

    I have never liked grilled kielbasa! ONLY boiled for me.

    but fresh sausage needs some browning of some sort!

    I know what you mean!!
    However, I have an advantage, as you're 51 years old, and I'll be married 50 years, come December.

    Yup, that is similar to one of my other tries, but all of them are a PITA, compared to doing them in the Air Fryer.

    Nice looking sausage sammies bear, especially the open face.

    Point for sure.

    Thank You Tom!!
    The sauce tastes just like he Sauce & Peppers we get around here on Sausage Sammies, at Steak Sammy Joints.
    The Peppers are just mild Green Peppers. The only thing they needed was some Fried Onions, but we don't stock onions, and we didn't think to get any.
    Those Banana Peppers are a bit Hot, but not Super Hot.

    Ah! Hrm, I'll have to look into making some my self; our garden is producing peppers that look like small children this year, alot of mild ones, few hot ones. I was going to use them all for salsa projects but maybe not now.. ;)
