How To Make Air Fryer Hot Dogs

This is literally the easiest way to make hot dogs! Remember boiled hot dogs? {yuck!} This is NOT that. Air fryer hot dogs come out perfectly!

You don’t have to worry about prepping the grill (which is especially annoying if you are only making one or two hot dogs) or worry about one falling through the slats into the grill, either, when cooked in an Air Fryer!

I also love that you can toast your hot dog buns in the air fryer! It’s way easier than toasting them on the grill (I usually burn them that way).
