Tips for Cooking Corn dogs in an Air Fryer
Do not defrost them. You want them to be solid frozen when you put them in the air fryer.
Preheat your air fryer. Preheating your air fryer before cooking the corn dogs will ensure that they cook evenly and become crispy.
Single layer. Only cook them in a single layer, do not stack them or they will not cook thoroughly.
Read your instructions. Some air fryers will require you to use cooking spray when you are using them, others don’t so be sure to check the specific directions for yours.
Don’t overcrowd the basket. Make sure to arrange the corn dogs in a single layer in the air fryer basket, leaving enough space between them to allow for proper air circulation. This will help them cook evenly and avoid sticking together.
Flip halfway through cooking. Flipping the corn dogs over halfway through the cooking time will ensure that they cook evenly on all sides and become crispy. While you don’t have to
Check on the corn dogs. It’s important to check on the corn dogs periodically during cooking to make sure they’re not overcooked or undercooked. If they’re cooking too quickly, reduce the cooking time or temperature to prevent burning.
Serve immediately. Corn dogs are best served hot and fresh out of the air fryer. Serve with your favorite dipping sauce and enjoy!
