  • 2 Frankfurters or Weiners
  • 2 hot dog buns
  • oil for the air fryer basket

Optional Toppings

  • cheese slices
  • ketchup
  • mustard
  • pickle relish
  • diced onions


  • Preheat the air fryer to 380°F (193°C) and spray the air fryer basket with a little oil (no non-stick spray).
  • Cut a few small cuts into the sausages or pierce them with the tip of a sharp knife and place them in the preheated fryer basket. Cook for 3 minutes, then turn them and cook for an additional 2-3 minutes until they are cooked through and lightly browned.
  • Remove the sausages from the air fryer and place them in the buns. Top with a slice of cheese if you like* and cook for 1 minute. Top with your favorite toppings and serve immediately.



* I like to wrap the cheese a little around the sausages so that the cheese doesn't get blown away.
