The beauty of owning an air fryer is that you can cook just about anything in less time with better texture than baking or pan frying. But one of our favorite foods to cook here at airfrying.net is the humble grilled cheese sandwich. While this may seem silly, did you know that there is a an entire movement devoted to the creation and consumption of gourmet grilled cheese? 

In fact, restaurants have been popping up all over the globe in the last five years that specialize in nothing but gourmet varieties of grilled cheese sandwiches and soups to accompany every flavor. But what we know (and perhaps they don’t) is that grilled cheese is better in the air fryer!

So…we thought we’d create the Ultimate Air Fryer Grilled Cheese Guide. From spicy to savory and sweet to sharp, we have the perfect grilled cheese sandwich to cook for any occasion.

Lunch date with the girls? We recommend our grilled cheese sandwich with gouda and apples.

Playdate with the neighborhood kids? Try our three-cheese grilled cheese.

Simple dinner date with your special someone? Try our Caprese grilled cheese.

The list goes on and on.Those who love a hint of spice and flavors inspired by Mexico will be fans of our grilled cheese with bacon and avocado. If you’re a lover of French Onion Soup, you’ll go bananas for our Guyere and Caramelized onion sandwich. If you love Italian inspired cuisine, be sure to try our spinach and ricotta or our tomato-basil grilled cheese sandwiches. If you are a lover of mushrooms, try our Mushroom and Swiss grilled cheese sandwich.

All of these sandwiches make for a decadent experience and can be served on a variety of buttered breads. Our favorites? Thick-sliced Brioche, Sourdough, or Italian, depending upon the flavor combination.

Go ahead. Be adventurous. Try out some of these mouth-watering recipes that totally reinvent the humble grilled cheese sandwich. We can guarantee you won’t be disappointed.

Ricotta & Spinach Grilled Cheese

This grilled cheese sandwich began with a simple question: I wonder if ricotta would be good on a grilled cheese sandwich? Ricotta Spinach Grilled Cheese Air Fried

We already knew that ricotta cheese has a light, airy texture when cooked in our favorite dishes, like lasagna and stuffed shells. What we didn’t know is how that would translate to a grilled cheese sandwich. The result? Out of this world! We spread the ricotta on both sides of buttered brioche slices and added spinach in the middle. As the sandwich cooked and the cheese melted, it got that light, fluffy texture, which created a flavor sensation we were pleased with. This sandwich is light, so it will be the perfect option for those of you who aren’t fans of grilled cheese due to the heaviness and greasiness of the cheese. This lighter fair goes perfectly with a bowl of steaming tomato soup or minestrone. Dee-licious! Try this light Air Fried Grilled Cheese Now

 

Bacon Avocado Grilled Cheese

Tomato Avocado Bacon Grilled CheeseThe votes are in, and we, here at airfrying, have decided that this is the BEST grilled cheese sandwich we have ever tasted. Inspired by the flavors of our favorite Mexican dishes, this sandwich is packed full of yum. We used Monterrey Jack Cheese slices, apple wood smoked bacon, vine ripe tomatoes, and Haas avocados (or spicy guacamole for the truly adventurous–my personal favorite). This sandwich, which has the potential to be very greasy, is light and crisp, thanks to the rapid-air technology of your air fryer. So the result is a crisp and delicious fusion of flavors that will tempt you to make another sandwich! We recommend brioche or sourdough for this particular sandwich, and it’s even more delicious when paired with a cup or bowl of black bean chili or chicken tortilla soup! You have to try this delicious bacon avocado grilled cheese

 

Three Cheese Grilled Cheese

3 Cheese Air Fried Grilled Cheese SandwichHave children? This one is our five-year-old’s favorite!

We used colby-jack, provolone, and Havarti cheese slices to stuff this sandwich full of cheesy goodness. The brioche bread adds a bit of sweetness to the savory cheeses, resulting in a hearty sandwich that will keep your little one fueled for a day outside running in the yard or spent indoors with toys. Perfect for cold winter days or crisp spring afternoons, this sandwich has become a staple in our kitchen. When prepared in the air fryer, this sandwich is light and crisp, rather than greasy, creating a perfect texture you and your children will love.

Seriously good. You won’t want to let a crumb go to waste! Air frying 3 cheese grilled cheese is crunchy cheesey goodness

 

Gouda and Apple Grilled Cheese

Apple and cheese please!Air Fryer Gouda and Apple Grilled Cheese

Sound a little weird? We thought so, too, but, being generally adventurous when it comes to food, we thought, “Why not?” And we certainly weren’t disappointed.

The smoky flavor of the Gouda combines with the sweetness of the apple slices for a delightful flavor fusion that pleases even the most sophisticated palettes. This sandwich is perfect for a ladies’ luncheon and goes perfectly with butternut squash or pumpkin soup or any type of vegetable or seafood bisque.

This one is a winner! Sounds odd but Gouda and Apple Grilled Cheese is a must try

Caprese Grilled Cheese

Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich Air Fried

This sandwich was born when I decided to turn my favorite salad into a sandwich. One of my favorite restaurant delights that I rarely make at home is the delicious Caprese salad. I love the flavors of mozzarella, tomatoes, and balsamic more than any other salad on the menu. So one day, when it was particularly cold outside, I thought, I’d love to have a Caprese salad, but it’s so cold. I want something hot to eat.

Thus, the Caprese Grilled Cheese Sandwich was borne. Simply baste both undersides of the bread with balsamic vinaigrette, add vine ripe or Roma tomatoes, and butter the outside of two layers of Italian or Brioche bread. The result is a delicious hot sandwich packed with flavor. In all honesty, it’s like a Caprese salad–only better! Why not air fry a Caprese salad on a sandwhich!

One of my favorite appetizers is the indulgent Caprese Salad. Loaded with fresh mozzarella rounds, juicy tomatoes, sweet basil, and drizzled balsamic, it’s not difficult to tell why it’s such a popular choice at restaurants all over the world. But what if you could take the ingredients to this popular salad and sandwich it between two slices of buttered bread? We, here at airfrying, did just that. If you love gourmet grilled cheese, then our air fryer Caprese Grilled Cheese sandwich is a must.

Like our other gourmet sandwiches, always choose your ingredients with care. For this savory culinary creation, we recommend all fresh ingredients. When whole milk Mozzarella combines with fresh basil, vine-ripe tomatoes, and a drizzle of your favorite variety of balsamic vinegar, you get a garden fresh sandwich that will please most any crowd.

For the bread, there are several options that will be delicious. Focaccia or Ciabatta are my two favorites, but I have found that a good Italian Herb loaf works best for grilling in the air fryer.

Whatever bread you choose, this delicious sandwich is the perfect mate for a steaming bowl of tomato-basil soup.

Caprice Grilled Cheese Air Fried

  • 2 slices Caprice Cheese
  • 2 slices bread (we used brioche highly recommended)
  • 2 tsp no-salt butter
  • 1 tomato
  1. add cheese and slices of tomato onto 1 slice of bread.

If you are committed to a healthy lifestyle or just pride yourself on eating your veggies, don’t overlook the delicious, nutritious serving of asparagus. The humble asparagus can be a temperamental vegetable, and the people who don’t care for it oftentimes just haven’t tasted it at its best. When prepared correctly in your air fryer, asparagus is a crisp, delicious side dish perfectly paired with your favorite protein.

The secret to asparagus is the cooking method. Baking or broiling tends to over dry, while boiling tends to make a mushy green mess that it neither tasty nor appetizing. However, when steamed or cooked in an air fryer, asparagus spears are a winning side dish when you’re in the mood for something green other than broccoli or green beans.

So go ahead. Give these crisp, delicious asparagus spears a try. We suggest serving with pork, poultry, or beef and sweet potatoes or baby reds.

Asparagus Olive Oil Salt Pepper

  • 1 bunch fresh asparagus
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 1 sprinkle salt and pepper
  1. Place asparagus in a bowl and toss with olive oil, salt, and pepper.

  2. Place in your air fryer basket and cook at 400 for 10-12 minutes, shaking the basket halfway through cooking time.

  3. Plate and enjoy.

If you’re a lover of grilled cheese in its simplest form, then allow me to introduce to you our delicious three-cheese grilled cheese sandwich, toasted to perfection in under three minutes with the help of your air fryer.

While the gourmet grilled cheese movement is still going strong, some people like to keep things basic: bread and cheese. If you fall into this category, then you’re going to love this simple, yet satisfying take on a plain, old fashioned grilled cheese sandwich. The key to creating this mouth-watering sandwich is all in the bread and combination of cheeses.

I highly recommend thick-sliced brioche, buttered on both sides for this sandwich. However, if you want super simple and super basic, plain old white bread will do just fine. For the three cheeses, you can use any variety that suits you, but I recommend my three favorites: Colby-Jack, Provolone, and Havarti. These three rich cheeses combine for an indulgent grilled cheese experience that will be the perfect accompaniment for your favorite soup or salad.

Seriously. You can’t go wrong with this one.

3 Cheese Grilled Cheese

3 Cheese Grilled Cheese air fried sandwich you won’t be disappointed with.

  1. place all 3 cheeses on a slice of bread. *we bought block cheese so we had to cut our slices this helps blend the cheeses together

  2. put top slice of bread on. Then butter both outside slices of the bread.

  3. place in air fryer and cook at 400º F for 2 minutes

  4. flip grilled cheese and cook at 400º F for another 2 minutes

Apples? On a grilled cheese sandwich?

Yes, you read that correctly. And don’t worry. I had the exact same thought. But, always being open to adventure, I put my skepticism aside and gave this gourmet grilled cheese combination a shot.

The result?

Perfection! 

Sliced gouda cheese has a sharp yet sweet flavor that can be described as buttery. This strong flavor is perfectly complimented by a sweet apple for a delicious sweet and savory experience you will definitely want to repeat. You can find Gouda cheese in the gourmet cheese section of your local market in blocks or in slices. You can use smoked Gouda for a stronger flavor, but I chose regular Gouda for a milder flavor. If the Gouda cheese you buy isn’t pre-sliced, simply slice and line the bread.

While the cheese needs to be Gouda, you have a few more options with the apples, depending on what flavor you are going for. I will say that with the sharpness and sweetness of the Gouda cheese, I would stay away from sour apple varieties, like Granny Smith, and opt instead a sweeter apple. My favorite apple variety is the Envy apple. Crisp and sweet, the envy apple slices were the perfect flavor combined with the sharp cheese.

For the bread, I chose thickly sliced French Brioche, and I definitely wasn’t sorry. The sweetness of this bread, combined with the savory sweet Gouda and sweet, crisp apples was the perfect finishing touch to this amazing gourmet sandwich.

Air Fryer Gouda and Apple Grilled Cheese

Tired of the same old ho-hum steamed broccoli? Well, we have jut the thing for you! Try our delicious and nutritious lemon pepper broccoli cooked to perfection in your very own air fryer.

The main problem with broccoli is its texture when it is overcooked. And sadly, when boiled on the stove top, that’s exactly what happens sometimes. Whether your kids interrupt you, you get a phone call, or you are otherwise distracted, busy cooks tend to leave their veggies on the stove for too long.

The result?

Water-logged, mushy broccoli, depleted of nutrients and sporting a putrid green color.

However, when prepared in your air fryer, the result is a crisp, bright green veggie packed with flavor and nutrients. Be sure to add a sprinkle of salt alongside the lemon pepper for a flavor that goes beyond the blandness of steaming or boiling. If you’re after an extra indulgence, you can top off this side with a thin pad of butter.

Lemon Pepper Broccoli in the Air Fryer

  • 1 head fresh broccoli (you can also use frozen)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon pepper seasoning
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Toss the broccoli in olive oil and place it in the basket of your air fryer.

  2. Sprinkle with lemon-pepper seasoning, salt and pepper (if needed)

  3. Cook at 400 degrees for 15-20 minutes, shaking the basket at least once as it cooks. 

  4. Plate and enjoy!
