How To Cook Hot Dogs In The Air Fryer?

Air Fryer Hot Dogs with toasted buns are super easy and fun to make!

  2. Space hot dogs evenly in the air fryer basket and cook on high for 3-5 minutes.
  3. Serve with your choice of toppings

PRO TIP: Cooking frozen hot dogs – cut a row of slits on the outside (so they don’t burst during cooking), and air fry for 7 to 8 minutes.
