  1. Tried it and my bread was hard and too crunchy. Not sure what I did wrong with grilled cheese 😕

  2. I made this and enjoyed it. The top piece of bread seemed to get “blown” off of the sandwich. Might need a toothpick.

  3. This grilled cheese looks amazing! Now I just need a hot bowl of soup and I’m set 🙂

  4. Clearly i need to go out and buy an air fryer RIGHT NOW! OMG!!!!!! AMAZING!
