Airfryer Grilled Cheese Sandwich, Crunchy Cheesy Goodness!

Whether eaten with a side of your favorite chips or paired with a bowl of steamy tomato or vegetable soup, there’s nothing better than a crunchy, melty, buttery grilled cheese sandwich on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon. It’s a classic childhood favorite that most of us carry into adulthood, which means a properly prepared airfryer grilled cheese sandwich is a meal the entire family can enjoy.

I thought nothing could be better than a classic grilled cheese cooked in a cast iron skillet, that is, until I tried one in the air fryer. An airfryer grilled cheese sandwich provides a crispy, buttery outer layer with a cheesy, melty inner layer that creates the perfect sandwich without burning, over drying, or overcooking.

As a side note, I don’t eat gluten, and the air fryer toasts this delicious grilled cheese sandwich, creating a crispy outer layer on normally chewy gluten free bread.
