I know what you’re thinking. Peanut butter? Yum. Bacon? Yum. Hot Dogs? Yum. But a peanut butter bacon hot dog? Not so sure. That’s what I thought at first, too, but I guess the old saying rings true: Don’t knock it till you’ve tried it.
In fact, the sweet, nutty peanut butter is the perfect sidekick for the salty, savory bacon and hot dogs. And if you really want to get wild, I recommend applewood smoked bacon to really enhance all the flavors in a good way. So, if you’re in the mood to try something outside the box, give our air fryer peanut butter bacon hot dogs a try!
Preparing Air Fryer Peanut Butter Bacon Hot Dogs
One of my favorite things to prepare in the air fryer is the humble hot dog. I am not a fan of the blackened burned hot dogs prepared on the grill. Likewise, I don’t like boiled or microwaved hot dogs, either. I think the perfect way to prepare a hot dog is in the air fryer. Why? First of all, there’s no charring, you can cook them rain or shine, and they’re ready in only minutes.
Plus, you can also toast the buns and prep the bacon in the air fryer, as well!
I highly recommend adding this sweet and savory option to your hot dog bar at the next gathering of family and friends!
