  • Air fryer


  • 2 slices bread
  • 1 teaspoon butter
  • 2 slices cheddar cheese
  • 2 slices turkey (optional)


  • Preheat the air fryer to 350 degrees.
  • Spread the butter on one side of the bread. Add cheese, turkey if using and cover with another piece of bread, buttered on the opposite side.
  • Place the sandwich inside the Air Fryer. Set the time for 5 minutes. Turn half way.
  • The grilled cheese sandwich suppose to look like on the picture, toasty and with lots of melted cheese!


  • Use a toothpick to prevent the top bread slice from frying around. In some air fryers its not needed.
  • You don't need to pretoast the bread. Cook all at once.
  • Enjoy immediately after cooking, while hot and crunchy. To reheat just pop into the air fryer for couple minutes at 400 degrees.
  • My favorite cheese to use in the air fryer grilled cheese sandwich in sharp cheddar. It melts lovely and looks beautiful.
