Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs in Air Fryer
Step 1 – Wrap the the Hot Dogs in Bacon. Grab a piece of bacon and wrapped hotdog in bacon starting at one end wrapping the bacon around the hotdog. The idea here is to not overlap the bacon when you are wrapping. This will make for more even cooking.Tip: If you want you can secure the bacon at each end with a toothpick.
Place the completed hotdogs on a baking sheet. If you were just doing a few of them like I am placed them directly in the air fryer basket.
Cooking Temperature 400 Degrees FahrenheitCooking Time 10 Minutes (Less if you like less crispy bacon)
Step 2 – Flip the Hotdogs about halfway through the cooking time. If you have not secured the bacon with toothpicks be careful when flipping. If you are using thinner bacon it usually crisps up pretty quickly and does not move around.
Step 3 – Toast the hot dog buns by removing the hotdogs when they are done cooking. Place each hotdog in a bun and return them to the air fryer basket and cook for about 30 seconds to toast up the bun.
Bacon Wrapped Hot Dogs in Oven
I sometimes like to make these bacon wrapped hot dogs in the oven. I usually do this when I am making a large amount of hotdogs because you can fit a lot of these hotdogs on a baking sheet. I find that lining the baking sheet with parchment paper keeps things from sticking.Preheat Oven to 400 Degrees FahrenheitCooking Time is 12 to 15 Minutes (or until bacon is crisp to your liking)Hint: When hotdogs are done cooking I put them in the buns and place them back in the oven to toast the buns up a bit. I think the hot dog isbetter when the bun is toasted with a medium heat. In less than 20 minutes we have amazing hotdogs.
