Grilled Cheese Sandwich is probably one of my favourite meals and it is so comforting that I had to try making them inside an Air fryer.
So, if you are someone who cannot stay without them then you have to read this on how to make a grilled cheese Sandwich inside an Air fryer.
Airfryer is the perfect device for someone who is trying to cut down their calories and keep their weight in check. There are so many reasons I would prefer cooking any of my meals inside an air fryer rather than deep frying them or cooking them in a pan.
First off, air fryers are extremely easy to use. You can put in whatever you want to get cooked inside an air fryer, set the timer and go about doing your daily chores till your meal gets ready.
This makes making a grilled sandwich even better as it is more convenient and it does not involve using a lot of oil as well to get that crispy texture on my sandwiches.
So, if you are cooking your grilled sandwiches inside an air fryer then I can bet you, you are going to be hooked to these sandwiches because not only are they just comforting but they are healthy as well!
Why cook a Grilled Cheese Sandwich inside an Air fryer?
For starters, you are cutting back a lot of oil that you would be using if you were cooking the sandwich in a pan.
I personally use at least more that two tablespoons of butter on the pan separately while cooking my sandwiches so that they get that crispy texture.
Inside an air fryer, you are not going to use A LOT of oil or butter hence you would be cutting back calories which might seem little for someone having one grilled sandwich but it goes a LONG way when it comes to losing weight.
You are not going o unnecessarily add calories, however, this does not make the sandwich completely Fat free because you are still going to be using cheese and butter but you are definitely making it way healthier than cooking in a pan.
The taste of the sandwich is the same as that of a pan and you just can’t tell the difference. That is a LOT especially when you are using a lot less oil and still get that crispiness that you are used to in normal cooking.
So, cooking a grilled sandwich inside the air fryer might have been the best decision of your life and you can definitely enjoy your sandwiches guilt free as they are not as calorie packed as they used to be before!
So this is a very typical recipe and if you do not know how to cook a grilled cheese sandwich then continue reading ahead.
If you do know the recipe, you can just watch the video below so that you are sure, you know all the tips you need to know in order to make the perfect grilled cheese sandwich inside an air fryer.
– Sandwich Bread(It can be gluten free bread in case you are gluten intolerant)
– Cheese Slices(Vegan cheese would work if you are intolerant to diary)
Spread a thin layer of butter on the inside of the sandwich bread and once done, you are going to place cheese slices on top of the bread and cover it with another layer of bread.
Make sure that you brush butter on both the sides of each bread that you are using in this sandwich. The butter is going to give the bread a nice crispy outside while the melted cheese inside is all warm and soft.
Cook the sandwich at 350 Fahrenheit inside an air fryer and make sure that you turn the bread inside an air fryer after it is cooked for about 6 minutes.
After another 5 minutes, you can take out the sandwiches and it would be ready to serve!
Turning around the sandwiches midway while it is being cooked is going to give them a nice crispy texture that is very typical with any grilled cheese sandwich.
The temperature of the air fryer depends on the one that you are using for this recipe.
The one that I usually use is the Philips Air fryer which is probably the most amazing Air fryer out there in terms of quality and longevity.
Most of the air fryers have complaints of being useless as they do not last long because the bottom coating of the air fryer comes off which is just not healthy.
Unlike those fryers, the one from Philips lasts for a good amount of time and is definitely an air Fryer that I would recommend.
