Fried Hot Dogs in Airfryer

Making fried sausages in an airfryer is safe and quick. While you can also cook them quickly in a pan, the airfryer lets you avoid standing by and turning them.

Using an airfryer to make fried sausages is great because you can cook a lot at once, making it perfect for a large family dinner or a friendly gathering with quick, delicious hot food.

While the sausages are cooking in the airfryer, you can prepare a quick salad or slice some bread to go with them, and your delicious lunch or dinner is ready.

Tips for Frying Hot Dogs in Air Fryer

  • It is not necessary to preheat the airfryer or coat the franks with oil before putting them in the air fryer.
  • If you set your air fryer to a lower temperature, like 300 F or 150 C, the hot dogs will heat through nicely and become crispy, but they won’t have a brown fried color.
  • If you set it to 360 F (180 C) or higher, the hot dogs will crack in the, just like when cooked in boiling water. However, the higher the temperature, the easier they get a beautifully fried brown color.
  • I like to score hot dogs about 1/2-3/4 inch apart because they look so cute, and my kids love them that way. But of course, this step is optional, and you can put them whole into the air fryer.
