Searching for a quick meal that is guaranteed to fill you up and leave you happy? Frozen corn dogs in the air fryer might be just the thing for you to make!
This perfectly dippable breaded hot dog on a stick is typically served with ketchup and/or mustard for a hint of flavor!
Before making air fryer frozen corn dogs, have a quick read through these recipe tips so you know what to expect.
- Be sure not to overcrowd the air fryer tray. Like with cooking regular hot dogs in the air fryer, frozen corn dogs need space to cook and get crispy on the outside. If you have a smaller air fryer, perhaps cook this amount of corn dogs in two batches.
- There is no need to add any extra oil or seasonings to these corn dogs – they are typically ready to cook right out of the box.
- Mini corn dogs will cook slightly faster than regular-sized ones.
- The brand we used for this recipe is Pogo (which is pretty popular) but you can find other kinds out there.
We use this air fryer for our recipes and it has been great.
Step by Step Instructions
It’s really easy to make frozen corn dogs in the air fryer. If you would like to see some visuals, you can have a look at the few process photos in this section.
If you are feeling confident and just want the cooking times and temperatures, you can skip to the bottom of this post for all the details!
First, preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit.
Once the air fryer is hot, add the corn dogs into the air fryer tray in one layer. Make sure to not overcrowd the air fryer.
Cook the frozen corn dogs for 8-10 minutes (regular-sized corn dogs) and slightly less for mini-sized corn dogs until fully heated through.
The cook time can vary by air fryer and brand of corn dogs you use.
Once cooked, remove the corn dogs from the air fryer and serve them with mustard and/or ketchup. Keep in mind that the insides of the corn dog will be very hot!
Air-fried corn dogs taste best when they are hot and fresh. That’s why we would recommend only making the number of corn dogs that you will need.
If you do have leftovers, you can store uneaten corn dogs in a sealed container in the fridge.
They will last like this for up to 3 days – and can be heated up again in the air fryer for a few minutes. The microwave is also an option but it will likely make the breading soft.

My Pogo is defrost , how long they will need to cook ?
We haven’t made corn dogs once they have been defrosted yet. We’d expect it to take slightly less time than a fully frozen one – so, between 6-8 minutes. But please keep a close eye on them (they might need less time depending on your air fryer) and watch for that golden brown color. Hope that helps!
I pull mine out in morning wrap in paper towels and ziplock bag let thaw during.day in fridge Quicker and crisper when cooked
Thanks for sharing Mariedith, that’s great for those days when you can plan ahead. /Lisa
