WHY I LOVE THIS HOT DOG RECIPE
Air fryer hot dogs is a family favorite and makes a perfect week night meal. With just two basic ingredients of beef hot dogs, and hot dog buns, all you need are your favorite classic toppings, and dinner is ready!
Air frying these hot dogs is not only fast, it's super easy. You can even add creative toppings, like a slice of cheese or cheese sauce, chopped white onion, or chili, to make chili cheese dogs. There are so many flavor combinations you can use!
Air Fryer Hamburgers are also so easy to make, and full of flavor in every bite. They are so much easier to make than grilling, with much less prep work. Even if you make too many, we show you how to reheat burgers in the air fryer.
Take the hot dogs out of packaging, then cut diagonal slits into each hot dog.
Place hot dogs in air fryer in a single layer.
Air fry at 400 degrees F for 5-7 minutes cooking time.
Once hot dogs are done, use tongs or a fork to remove from the basket. Place hot dogs in buns and serve, or for a toasted bun, return hotdogs and buns to air fryer and air fry again at 400 degrees F for 1-2 minutes, until bun is a golden color.
Remove hot dogs from air fryer basket and serve with favorite condiments and toppings, such as ketchup, yellow mustard, chopped onions, pickle relish, or BBQ sauce.
I make this recipe in my Cosori Air Fryer. Depending on your air fryer, size and wattages, air frying time may need to be adjusted 1-2 minutes extra time.
Wrap a couple of slices of bacon around the hot dog and air fry until the bacon is crispy. It may be an additional 2-3 minutes of cook time.
Besides classic hotdog toppings, sprinkle shredded cheese, salsa, or a chili sauce on top.
- Use a sharp knife to cut a couple of slits into the hot dogs. This helps them have the grill marks, but more importantly allows the hot dog to expand as it cooks, so the heat can get to the center of the hot dog.
- Add the hot dogs with the buns for the extra few minutes, to make the buns toasty.
