Tips for Fair-Worthy Air Fryer Corn Dogs

Whether it’s a snack or a meal you need to cook these for, cooking them in the air fryer is the best way to go. No more soggy bottoms from the oven or microwave. Perfectly crispy all the way around!

  • Do Not Over Crowd: Make sure to not over crowd your air fryer. Leave enough room between them that the air can circulate all the way around them.
  • Shake: If you want to shake or flip the corn dogs half way through you can. It can create a better crust.
  • Hot: These will be hot when you take them out, including the sticks, so let them cool enough to handle before handing them off to the kids.
  • Thaw:  Best part about these, is that you do not have to thaw before cooking.
  • Will the Sticks Burn? Nope! You cook these knowing they should be just fine.
  • Know your Air Fryer: Every air fryer brand cooks a bit differently so you might have to experiment with the time a bit. Check them after 8 minutes and if not done continue to check and cook till desired doneness.
  • Make it Mini: Mini corn dogs also are fantastic in the air fryer, use the same temperature, just shorter cooking time. Again check often till they are at desired doneness.
  • What to Serve these With: Corn dogs go great with a bit ketchup and mustard. Serve with air fryer chips, this amazing pasta salad and fruit salad for a well balanced meal.

  1. When you list this as “bake” at 360 for 8-10 minutes do you literally mean bake in your airfryer? My airfryer has the bake option and I want to make sure I am choosing the right one.
