Grilled Cheese Ingredients (Full Recipe in the Recipe Card Below)
With only three ingredients, you can whip up, I mean air fry, this sandwich in no time!
Bread: Brioche bread was the perfect choice for this grilled cheese sandwich. It is a rich and buttery bread that is somewhat of a pastry and bread combo. You can, of course, use whatever bread you prefer.
Mayonnaise: Mayonnaise (full-fat) was used in the sandwiches for a crisp, golden-brown crust
Cheese: I prefer shredded cheddar, but use whatever cheese is your favorite!
How to Make Air Fryer Grilled Cheese
To get this cheesy sandwich made, first, preheat your air fryer to 350°F and line the basket with parchment paper. Next, equally spread the mayonnaise on the tops of all four slices of bread. (It was about a tablespoon of mayo per slice.) Then, place two slices, mayonnaise side down, into the basket of the air fryer.
Top the slices of bread with about a cup of shredded cheese each. Finally, place the other two slices of bread on top, mayonnaise side up. Air fry for about 5 minutes; then, flip over the sandwiches and cook an additional 3 minutes. Remove the sandwiches from the air fryer and serve with a bowl of Roasted Tomato Soup for a hearty lunch or satisfying dinner.
