This is the only air fryer grilled cheese sandwich recipe you will ever need because it’s life-changing. Crunchy buttery bread paired with delicious gooey melted cheese, nothing can beat that!
I finally invested in the Air Fryer, and oh my, how happy it makes the kids and I! We tried so many different recipes in the first week – let me tell you, all of them were delicious and very easy to make.
Oil-free cooking, in general, is amazing. Most of my air fryer recipes are:
suitable for keto and paleo diets,
low in weight watchers points and
Well…, except this recipe. We all need a treat sometimes, right?!
Like many people, I used to make grilled cheese sandwiches on a skillet, but now that I have my trusty air fryer, I make them in that because it’s so simple, and the air fryer makes the sandwich perfectly toasty and gooey!
2 slices bread
1 teaspoon butter
2 slices cheddar cheese
2 slices turkey (optional)
Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees.
Spread the butter on one side of the bread. Add cheese, turkey if using and cover with another piece of bread, buttered on the opposite side.
Place the sandwich inside the Air Fryer. Set the time for 5 minutes. Turn half way.
The grilled cheese sandwich suppose to look like on the picture, toasty and with lots of melted cheese!
Use a toothpick to prevent the top bread slice from frying around. In some air fryers its not needed.
You don’t need to pretoast the bread. Cook all at once.
Enjoy immediately after cooking, while hot and crunchy. To reheat just pop into the air fryer for couple minutes at 400 degrees.
My favorite cheese to use in the air fryer grilled cheese sandwich in sharp cheddar. It melts lovely and looks beautiful.
