The Most Amazing Air Fryer Grilled Cheese
We have really been loving the air fryer lately! It is so easy to pop something in and a few minutes later you have something delicious with the perfect crispness. These easy air fryer grilled cheese sandwiches have become our new favorite thing to make. Slather on the butter and pick any cheese and bread you want for this quick and simple lunch or dinner option!
You have to try this with a big bowl of our Tomato Basil Soup!
What You Will Need
- bread – any variety works, even gluten free bread.
- butter – we love using butter on the inside and outside of the bread, but some people swear by mayonnaise instead of butter and you can easily do that too.
- sliced cheese – any of cheese that melts really well will work (i.e. American, Swiss, Provolone, etc.), just grab your favorite!
Optional Additions To An Air Fryer Grilled Cheese
If you are looking to add a little something more to your toasted cheese sandwich, we suggest adding some bacon or tomato in the middle!
- Make sure you keep some spacing between your sandwiches to ensure even toasting.
- Try to preheat your air fryer before placing your sandwiches in the basket, they will cook faster that way.
- If you want to keep it dairy-free and/or gluten-free you can easily substitute the cheese for dairy-free cheese and the bread for gluten-free bread.
- You definitely have to serve this with some of our Tomato Basil Soup – it’s a must!
How To Make Grilled Cheese In The Air Fryer
First, slather a generous amount of butter on both sides of each slice of bread.
Place some nice, thick slices of cheese in the middle.
And the other slice of bread on top.
Next, place the cheese sandwich on the air fryer basket and cook at 350 for 10 minutes, making sure to flip it halfway through.
