Recipe Tips

  • Fold the cheese slices in-between the bread slices making sure all the cheese is inside the bread not falling out.

  • You can also use a light cooking spray in place of butter.
  • Use the rack your air fryer came with to prevent bread from possibly flying up during cooking process.
