How to cook hot dogs in air fryer

Air fryers come in different sizes. My Air fryer  (Gourmia 5 Qt), that i bought in Costco, perfectly fits 3 hot dogs with buns.

They fit tight but perfect. For the buns i use regular buns from the general stores like Walmart or something similar.

For franks i like to use McCormick Montreal Steak Smoked Sausage. Its tasty and i like the quality. But of course, any of your favorite sausage will work just fine!

How to cook hot dogs? First cook franks for about 5 minutes at 375 degrees.

And then place sausages in to buns and cook for another couple minutes at the same temperature. Yum!

  1. I fixed these for lunch today and they were delish. I love the way it toasted the bun. I used Nathan’s All Beef Hotdogs and I preheated my fryer.

  2. Hi I’m making this tomorrow. Do you have to preheat the air fryer?

  3. Catrena Lones
