Air Fryer Hot Dogs

Air Fryer Hot Dogs are a new dish that I have made in my air fryer. I know if you have an air fryer, or perhaps if you want to get one, you may wonder what else can you cook in your air fryer.

Hot dogs, and yes, you can make air fryer hot dogs. Do you love hot dogs that are grilled? These hot dogs when cooked in your air fryer take about 8 minutes and they are cooked equally all the way around the hot dog. Enjoying the hot dogs cooked in your air fryer is quick and easy.

I like my Phillips Air fryer. I turn up the heat to 390 degrees. I pop a couple of hot dogs into the air fryer and cook them for about 5 to 6 minutes.

I like to then pull the hot dogs out of the cooker, and then place them into the hot dog buns and then cook them for 1 to 2 minutes more. This makes the outside of the hot dog bun crispy. And if you add a bit of cheese when you pop them back into the air fryer the cheese melts perfectly.

You can extend the use of your air fryer by cooking all sorts of things in there. I have made roasted corn in my air fryer. I have also enjoyed bacon-wrapped jalapeno poppers in the air fryer. Check out all my air fryer recipes.

You might wonder How Air Fryers Work.

This kitchen appliance works by circulating super-hot air in a small space. In the case of the hot dogs, the very hot air is circulated quickly through the cooking area. This works quickly to cook the hot dog on the outside. The excess fat will drip away from the hot dog. You may want to cook up a few tater tots along with the hot dogs.

My favorite air fryer is my Phillips Air Fryer. There are many different brands, but I have tried the Phillips and the Black and Decker version, and for me, the Phillips brand circulated the air better and made for a better-finished product. My results with the Phillips tended to be crispier and it cooked at a higher temperature.

    This is a pretty good air fryer hot dog recipe. But it could use some improvement. First, I’d use 410 degrees, instead of 390. That extra heat really makes the hot dog pop. Also, try scoring the hot dogs a bit before frying, and then placing some cheese within the grooves. It’s delicious that way!
