Air fryer hot dogs-

Hot dogs are a classic favorite, especially with kids. Cooking hot dogs in an air fryer has become a favorite cooking method of mine. Plus, you don’t have to worry about the extra clean-up whether you’re using the boiling method or grilling.

When cooked in an air fryer, they still have that crispiness you’d expect from a good hot dog, yet it retains juiciness on the inside.
