Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • When it comes to your “pig” you can use any type of hot dog or sausage that you prefer. If you like smoked sausages you can easily use those or even a spicy Lil’ Smoked Sausage for a little bit of kick. 
  • When you are cooking multiple batches remember that the second batch could and probably will cook faster than the first because your Air Fryer is hotter than when you started cooking. 
  • If you prefer you can use full size pigs in a blanket with hot dogs. Just noted that you will need more crescent rolls and will need to adjust the cooking time abit. 
  • If your kids are a fan of cheese you can easily wrap a little cheese up in your crescent roll as well! 
  • You can easily double or triple the batch. Just be sure to not overcrowd your Air Fryer during the cooking process.
