There is nothing like a freshly dipped and fried corn dog but sometimes when you want something quick, a frozen corn dog is the perfect option.

Why cook in the air fryer?

You have a microwave and oven so why use an air fryer? There are many reasons I choose this cooking method. With the oven, you have to wait for it to preheat and often the cooking times are longer. The microwave is fast but can sometimes give food a rubbery texture. 

The air fryer uses hot circulated air which gives food a delicious crispy, crunchy, just-like-fried texture.

Also, since you don’t have to use any extra oil, it helps to cut back on calories. Finally it cooks really fast and is super easy to clean.

Recipe tips

  • Don’t stack corn dogs on top of each other while cooking. This helps the heat circulate around the food to get a nice even cook and perfect crunch on the outside.
  • Use soft tipped utensils when removing food from the fryer so the basket doesn’t get scratched.

There are many great machines on the market today. Before you purchase, think about the quantity you will be cooking and how often you will be using. This can help determine the size you might need.
