Can you cook frozen mini corn dogs in the air fryer? Yes, one of the best ways to cook frozen corn dogs is in the air fryer! The air frying method produces a crispy crust and a hot, juicy center. Plus, you don’t have to worry about preheating an oven or deep-frying.

A corn dog is a hot dog sausage coated with a thick layer of sweet cornbread batter, which is then traditionally deep-fried. The outside gets nice and crispy, while the inside remains juicy and tender.

You can enjoy corn dogs in mini form as a quick snack or appetizer. Find mini corn dogs in the frozen appetizer section of the grocery store. Popular brands include Tyson, Kellogg’s Eggo and Farm Rich.

🌭Ingredients and Tools

  • Frozen Mini Corn Dogs – Find these in the appetizer section in the freezer of your local grocery store.
  • Heat Safe Tongs – The air fryer will get very hot while cooking. Be sure to use heat-safe tongs to flip and remove the corn dogs.
  • Air Fryer or Ninja Foodi – Any air fryer will work for this method; we love using Ninja air fryers because they are reliable and versatile.

📖How To Cook Frozen Mini Corn Dogs In Air Fryer

1️⃣Preheat the air fryer: Keep your mini corn dogs frozen until cooking. Preheat the air fryer to 375F for 3-5 minutes.

2️⃣Arrange frozen corn dogs: Place the frozen corn dogs in a single layer at the bottom of the air fryer basket. Set the timer for 10 minutes. At the halfway point, flip the corn dogs over using a pair of heat-safe tongs.

3️⃣Remove and serve: When the timer goes off, check to ensure your corn dogs are golden brown and cooked through the center. If you need extra time, add 2-3 minute increments until done. Serve warm with ketchup or mustard for dipping!

👩‍🍳Cooking Tips

  • Every corndog is different. Some have extra sugar on the outside, and some of the meat is larger than others. How long to cook frozen mini corn dogs in the air fryer will depend. Cooking at 375F for 10 minutes is a good starting point to air frying corn dogs. You may need to add more cooking time as necessary.
  • If you find that your corn dogs are getting too browned, wrap them in foil for the last 5-6 minutes of cook time.
  • Place the mini corn dogs in a single layer to ensure even cooking. You may need to work in batches if your air fryer is smaller.
