Making grilled cheese in an air fryer is the best way to get a perfectly crispy exterior with gooey, melty cheese inside!


  • 4 slices sandwich bread
  • 2 tablespoons softened butter
  • 1 cup shredded cheese (cheddar, gouda, provolone or a blend)


  1. Preheat air fryer to 390 degrees.
  2. Spread 1/2 tablespoon of butter onto each slice of bread.
  3. Place one slice of bread butter side down into the air fryer basket.
  4. Top with 1/2 cup shredded cheese, then top with the second slice of bread, butter side facing up.
  5. Toast in the air fryer for 4-5 minutes until golden brown.
  6. Repeat steps for the second sandwich.
