What are the best sausages to use for hot dogs?

When I make hot dogs, I usually use beef franks. They are super meaty and packed full of flavor. As an alternative, you could try turkey franks or a meat free option.

Hot dog sausages are pre-cooked, so if you want to make these with other sausages you will have to adjust the cooking time. Check out my Italian sausage air fryer recipe if you want to make these with another type of sausage.

Can you cook hot dogs from frozen?

Yes! If you haven’t had time to thaw the hot dogs, then you can cook them right from frozen! Use a sharp knife to make three slits in each dog and then place in the air fryer at 350F for 7 to 8 minutes. You can then take them out and add the buns.

Make sure you make the slits with the knife or they will burst open as they cook.
