Air-Fryer Grilled Cheese Sandwiches Tips

You can’t have crunchy delicious grilled cheese without the perfect soup to dunk it in! Our best tomato soup
is packed with rich tomato flavor. You can also add some greens and protein to your meal with a salad topped with grilled chicken
How can you prevent the bread from flying around the air fryer?
It can be hard to tell what’s happening inside the air fryer until you open it up! To save your hard work, all you need with this air-fryer grilled cheese recipe is a toothpick. Place one or two into the sandwich before you air fry and remove before eating.
Can you spread mayo instead of butter on the outside of the grilled cheese sandwiches?
Mayo can be a great change-up for toasting your sandwich. Our favorite stovetop grilled cheese recipe
even includes mayo in the mix! Our blend is made with 3 tablespoons softened butter, 3 tablespoons mayonnaise, 3 tablespoons finely grated cheese, and 1/8 teaspoon onion powder. The crust is crunchy and delicious!
What can you do if the cheese isn't fully melted before the bread is toasted?
If your bread starts to get too dark before the cheese is melted, consider turning the temperature down a bit. Flipping the sandwich halfway through should help the heat distribute evenly for the perfect sandwich. Read our best air fryer tips
