I am sure by now, if you have read Recipe This for a while, that you will know us Milners have a thing for hot dogs and sausages.

They are one of those delicious foods that cook so well in kitchen gadgets.

We love to make instant pot hot dogs and get excited over the dirty water method. Our readers have been following our air fryer hot dogs recipe for some time now and we also love to air fryer sausage links.

Sausages have been a thing of mine for more years than I can remember and our instant pot frozen Italian sausages is inspired by early cooking I did for Dominic when we first set up home.

Air fryer frozen hot dogs came about because we had some spare German sausages in the freezer, plenty of frozen hot dog buns and wanted to share with you how easy it is.

That you have a simple way for cooking your favourite frozen hot dogs and that dinner does not have to be a big deal. You can throw it all in the air fryer and have a delicious dinner to share with your family.

You can then choose how you like them. That might be mustard, mayonnaise, burger sauce or even tomato ketchup.

I am sure by now, if you have read Recipe This for a while, that we love sausages in any shape or size cooked in the air fryer.

Sausages are just so easy, and you can air fry them in many different varieties including hot dogs.

Plus, just like our sausages you can do both frozen and thawed.

For those times you don’t have hot dogs defrosted, cant make a decision over what to cook for dinner and then opt for those frozen hot dogs that you forgot about.

You can then have your hot dogs in however way that you would have them on the grill or in another method. Such as with our air fryer fried onions, with ketchup or maybe you are team mustard.

Beyond our air fryer frozen hotdogs, we have many more ideas for you to try including air fryer frozen corn dogs, instant pot dirty water hot dogs, air fryer hot dogs (think thawed version of this recipe, air fryer sausages, air fryer frozen sausages, or get brand specific with air fryer Richmond sausages.

Can You Cook Frozen Hot Dogs?

Yes, you can cook frozen hot dogs. Just like with frozen sausages, hot dogs can also be cooked from frozen, and we have done this many times in the air fryer and in the instant pot.

The best way to cook frozen hot dogs is to cook them in the air fryer. The air fryer can defrost and warm through the hot dogs at the same time and make them more grill like.

You can of course cook frozen hot dogs on the grill, or in the microwave, but we much prefer the air fryer method.

Can You Air Fry Frozen Hot Dogs?

Yes you can and they are AMAZING. Frozen hot dogs cook better in the air fryer compared to fresh. That is because the wet moisture from the frozen hot dog sausage helps decrease the amount of smoke in the air fryer.

Plus, you have no worries about food waste because you can grab your hot dogs directly from the freezer, remove the packaging and load them into the air fryer basket.

They are also perfect for those lazy days when you are too tired to cook but have mouths to feed. Just throw your frozen hot dogs in air fryer and you are all set.

What Do Air Fryer Frozen Hot Dogs Taste Like?

Air fryer frozen hot dogs taste just like hot dogs from the fair or from your family barbecue. Think of a grilled like flavour but cooked much quicker. I love air fryer frozen hot dogs for those times out of season when you are craving a hot dog, but its way too cold and annoying to go outside and turn the barbecue on.

Cooking Frozen Hot Dogs In Air Fryer

You are probably wondering what frozen hot dogs taste like and if cooking frozen hot dogs is something you should do.

Well let me tell you, that thanks to the wonderful technology of the air fryer and the way it circulates air, cooking frozen hot dogs taste amazing.

They do not have that horrible dry taste that frozen food often has, and you can remove the packaging, load them in the freezer and cook your frozen hot dogs.

Can You Cook Straight From Frozen In Air Fryer?

Yes, you can cook straight from frozen in the air fryer and air fryer frozen food is very popular, especially for those just starting out with the air fryer.

The first food we ever air fried was air fryer frozen chicken strips and we have many favourite air fryer frozen foods including air fryer frozen boneless chicken wings, air fryer frozen chicken kiev, air fryer frozen cauliflower (always a lunch favourite) and Jorge could just eat a bowl of air fryer frozen sweet potato fries.

Frozen Hot Dogs In Air Fryer Ninja Foodi

Also, if you have a Ninja Foodi and want to use the air fryer setting for frozen hot dogs in the air fryer, then you can do this too.

Simply use the air fryer basket of the Ninja and then follow the same time and temps.

Hotdogs – For frozen hotdogs we used one box of the TGI Friday’s frozen hotdogs which are so delicious. They come in a block of frozen hotdogs so you can partly defrost first to help separate them before air frying.

Optional – I love my sauce on a hotdog and usually have a combo of tomato ketchup and mustard. You can do the same or use your own favourite.
