Air Fryer Hot Dogs

COOK TIME10 mins
SERVINGS2 servings
YIELD4 hot dogs


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 hot dogs
  • 4 hot dog buns (top cut is best)
  • 4 slices cheddar cheese, optional
  1. Method
    Spray the basket of an air fryer with nonstick spray.
  2. Air fry the hot dogs:
  3. 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.

Tip Box
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.

If you are adding cheese to your hot dogs—add a slice of cheese in the middle each bun and top with hot dog. Air fry for 90 seconds and cheese will be melted, and the buns toasted.

Repeat with remaining hot dogs.

To serve: 

Serve hot dogs immediately topped with your favorite hot dog toppings including mustard, ketchup, and pickles.
