There are a few ways to cook Hot Dogs. You can boil them, fry them in a skillet or microwave them. Personally, I just can’t eat a hot dog zapped in the microwave. But that’s just me.

If you are fortunate enough to own an Air Fryer, you can also cook the hot dogs by following this Air Fryer Hot Dogs article.

I’m sure most of you don’t bother with this but to ensure that your Hot Dog is properly cooked, the internal temperature should be at least 140°F. Easily checked with a digital thermometer.
