Add grilled cheese to something else you can make in your air fryer! My air fryer grilled cheese recipe is super simple and takes only minutes.
Air Fryer Grilled Cheese
We just got our air fryer and are always learning new things to make with it. So far we made these AMAZING zucchini fries. Seriously, you have to try them!
What do you make in your air fryer?
Well, I decided to try and make something a little different. Instead of standing over the stove, what if I just air fried a grilled cheese? It turned out perfect. So I’m thrilled to share this recipe with you too.
Taking Grilled Cheese to the Next Level
I couldn’t just leave it as some cheese and bread. Nope, this sandwich is what grilled cheese wants to be when it grows up. It has brie, turkey and jam on a ciabatta bun! Talk about Heavenly.
These are the ingredients you’ll need to make your own. Feel free to change it up and use your favorite cheese or omit the meat.
- Ciabatta buns
- Brie Cheese
- Apple (I used Granny Smith)
- Sugar-free Strawberry Preserves
