    Air fryer hot pockets are so tasty and easy to make! I love them in the air fryer because I feel like they have more flavor and taste so much better!

  2. That is so neat! I totally have a nice air fryer and fail to take advantage of it. I need to nix the microwave and pull out the fryer!

    I never would have thought about making my hot pockets in the air fryer until I saw this in your Air Fryer Recipes facebook group. They turned out better than the microwave!

  7. I did two meatball marinara hotpockets in my air fryer for 6 minutes per side at 350 degrees. Unfortunately the outsides were great while the insides of both were still cold. I guess I’ll have to go to an even lower temp next time.

    Hello, I’m new to air frying and was so glad to come across this ‘recipe’! I don’t eat a lot of Hot Pockets, maybe because they weren’t very good in the microwave. They were hard, like a brick. This is a game-changer! I just made one, and it never tasted like that in the microwave. It had some crunch, but it was softer. The cheese was soft and stretchy. What a difference! Thank you for this recipe!

  9. Followed your directions exactly (13 minutes at 370, after preheating) and the pockets were still frozen on the inside. It may be a difference in air fryer, hot pocket flavor, hot pocket brand, or even altitude.

    1. Hi Rebecca, yes it could be all those things. I would suggest increasing your heat to 390 at 13 min and then add 2 min increments until its warm. I am not familiar with cooking at higher altitude but that will give you a place to start 🙂
