Recipe Tips

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.

Cook the corn dogs until heated and crispy.

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!

Storage Tips

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.

    • 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!
