Air Fryer Hot Dogs

by Ünal Güler

Generally, I make hot dogs one of two ways. I either grill the hot dogs if I happen to be grilling season or I will boil the hot dogs for the kids. The concept of air frying hot dogs was new to me, but I must admit that it was immediately added to my list of ways to quickly make hot dogs. 

I’m not one to air fry everything in the kitchen, but the technology is really cool and if you are looking make a meal in a limited amount of time, it’s a great kitchen tool. 

I was shocked at how my air fryer hot dogs turned out and they have since become my #1 way to make hot dogs that isn’t on the grill. My kids liked them even more than grilled hot dogs because there is no char element to them, which some kids don’t love. 

The finished hot dogs end up a little crispy on the exterior with a nice snap to them and stay very juicy on the inside. Most importantly, they are ready in no time! I’m talking 5 minutes maximum.

My Favorite Hot Dogs for Home Cooks

Before we dive into the air fryer method for hot dogs, I think it’s important to spend some time on the different brands of hot dogs on the market.

I do recommend spraying the basket with some nonstick spray just to make sure there is no sticking (especially if you are toasting the buns as detailed below). 

There is no need to flip the hot dogs or anything as they air fry—they will cook evenly. 

I recommend cooking them at 350˚F for about 5 minutes and they will be steaming hot and ready to serve!

Toasting Buns in the Air Fryer

This is a bonus step that I find completely fun and delicious. I love a toasted bun with my hot dogs and the air fryer makes this an easy add-on step. Once you have air-fried your hot dogs, add the hot dogs to the buns and place the entire thing back in the air fryer. You might only be able to fit 2 at a time, but the bread toasts quickly.

Turn on your air fryer for just 90 seconds and it will perfectly toast the bun around the hot dog! 

Simple Tip!

Add a slice of cheese between the hot dog and the bun and when you air fry it, the cheese gets melted and is SO delicious.

Air fry the hot dogs:

Add your 4 hot dogs to the air fryer basket, leaving some space between each hot dog. 

Air fry at 350˚F for 5 minutes. When the hot dogs are done, they should be glistening hot and slightly browned in spots.

Toast the buns in the air fryer: 

Remove hot dogs from air fryer basket using tongs or a fork and place each hot dog in a bun. 

Simple Tip!

I prefer top-cut buns for this recipe.  The buns stand up easier for better toasting.

Place 2 assembled hot dogs in the air fryer and cook for 90 seconds to toast the bun. The finished toasted bun will have a light toast on it and be slightly crispy on the edges.

Air fry for 90 seconds and cheese will be melted, and the buns toasted.

Repeat with remaining hot dogs.
