Every time I ask my daughter what she wants for a snack, her response is "corn dog please!" Ever since I learned that you can cook them in the air fryer the kids have become addicted to them. I don't blame them, they are delicious like this - just like you get at the fairground.

You will need:
- Frozen Corn Dogs
- Cooking oil spray
Substitutions and Additions
You could make them homemade if you so desired. Though I don't have a recipe for them like that. Normally, if I'm making corn dogs in the air fryer, it's because I'm short on time and need to whip up something quickly for the kids!
There are many different brands of corn dogs, I'm sure you probably have your favorite. They'll all work in the air fryer.
How To Make Them
Step One: After preheating the air fryer to 380°F spray the corn dogs with a little cooking oil.
Step Two: Cook for 11 minutes, shake/turn them half way through.
How To Serve Them
Seriously, how easy is that? My kids love these made in the air fryer, they won't let me cook them any other way now. If I ask them if they want corn dogs, their response is; "are you cooking them in the air fryer?" They know it's the best way.
Serve them straight out of the air fryer, arranged on a plate, or individually. Make sure you have some dipping sauce available. I have one child that likes ketchup on his, while my daughter prefers mustard. My mother-in-law likes to dip hers in syrup. Each to their own I guess.
Bottom line though, the corn dogs definitely have to be served right out of the air fryer.
If you don't get to eat them all and you have a few left over, it's fine. Place them in an air tight container in the refrigerator, then heat them up in the air fryer again when desired. They will be good in the refrigerator for 4-5 days.
Corn dogs cooked in the air fryer are simply the best! Cooked this way is the closest you will get to picking one up at the fairground. Delicious crispy outside with a nice hot sausage on the inside.

Air Fryer Mini Corn Dogs
You can also cook mini corn dogs in the air fryer too. They come out just as great! Reduce the cooking time to about 8 minutes at 380°F. They are just as perfect. Tiny finger food size - perfect for smaller kids.
I have found that 11 minutes at 380°F works perfectly with my air fryer.
