Air Fryer Grilled Cheese Recipe

Air Fryer Grilled Cheese
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes
  • Cook time: 10 Minutes
  • Total time: 15 Minutes
  • Serves: 1


  • 2 slices of bread
  • 2 slices of cheddar cheese
  • 1 Tbsp unsalted butter


  1. Preheat the air fryer to 180°C (350°F). It should take roughly 5 minutes to heat.
  2. Butter one side of each slice of bread.
  3. Place the cheese on the unbuttered side of the bread.
  4. Assemble the sandwich, so the buttered sides of the bread are facing outwards.
  5. Place the sandwich into the air fryer.
  6. Cook for 10 minutes. I recommend flipping the sandwich halfway through cooking.
  7. Serve & Enjoy.

Recipe Tips

  • Do not stack sandwiches in the air fryer as it will cause very inconsistent cooking.
  • I recommend preheating the air fryer before cooking your grilled cheese sandwich.
  • You can easily add more ingredients to the sandwich filling.
  • Be careful adding lots of wet ingredients as they may make your toasted sandwiches go soggy.
  • Flipping the sandwich is optional, but it does help get both sides of the sandwich crisp.
  • You can swap the butter for a different type of fat. For example, bacon fat will add a ton of flavor and make the sandwich deliciously crisp on the outside.
