Play it Safe

Hot! Hot! These dogs heat up quickly and they hold the heat. So be extremely careful when you take them out of the air fryer basket AND when you take that first bite!

How to Make Them

  1. Remove the corn dogs from the packaging (obviously!)
  2. Air fry the dogs at 400F/204C for 6-8 minutes with no added oil
  3. Remove from the air fryer basket.
  4. Plate up your dogs and serve with your favorite dipping sauce, remember they are very HOT!

Should I thaw them?

Nope, there is no need to thaw

What about mini corn dogs?

You can use the same temp but you need to lessen the cook time.

Do you need to add any spray oil to the basket?

No need to add any extra oil!

Will the sticks burn in the air fryer?

You might see some of the batter burn where it meets the stick, but we haven’t had any problems.

    Whoa, these corn dogs took me back to the state air, I can’t believe how good the air fryer made them taste! Thanks for the easy reheat directions!

    1. I havne’t tried it from unfrozen yet, but I would cut the time down by almost half, check it and then add 2 minutes checking and repeat 🙂

    My kids couldn’t be happier with these air fryer corn dogs. We don’t eat them often but man they sure to taste even better when made in the air fryer.
