If you’re a fan of caramelized onions and cream cheese, then you’ll want to try our Air Fryer Seattle Style Hot Dog!

Sweet and savory are the two words that best describe these delicious hot dogs. Inspired by the flavors of Seattle, Washington’s favorite hot dogs, this is one recipe you’ll want to save for later.

Not so sure about the flavor combinations? Neither was I. But I was pleasantly surprised by this flavorful hot dog. The cream cheese adds a creamy, savory quality, especially if you “grill” the bun first in the air fryer. Then, the cream cheese spreads smoothly over the bun for even application. Combined with the sweet, buttery caramelized onions, the result is a different, yet delicious dawg you’ll want to serve up for the upcoming summer holidays, like Memorial Day and the Fourth of July.
