  • 4 slices sandwich bread
  • 4 slices American cheese
  • butter
  1. Preheat Air Fryer to 360 degrees F.
  2. Place two slices of cheese between two slices of bread. Spread a light layer of butter on both sides of sandwiches. 
  3. Place sandwiches in single layer in Air Fryer basket. Place toothpicks through the corners of each sandwich. Set timer to 4 minutes. Flip sandwiches. Cook another 3-4 minutes until sandwiches are toasted. 
Key to Success #1 – Light on the Butter
The key to a toasty grilled cheese is to go light on the butter. If you slather on the butter, your sandwich will be a soggy mess. So just put a thin layer of butter on each side of the sandwich.

For my Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, I like to use a light butter spread like Country Crock. It is much easier to spread the butter evenly without tearing the bread. You can also used softened real butter if you prefer. Just use the defrost setting on your microwave for a few seconds until your butter is a spreadable consistency.

Key to Success #2 – Don’t Overcrowd But Do Flip Halfway Through
I have a Cozyna XL 5.8 QT Air Fryer and I can easily fit two sandwiches at a time. Your Air Fryer may be different depending on the size and the shape of your basket.

Just make sure your sandwiches will lay flat and there is room around the sandwiches for the hot air to circulate.

Halfway through cooking, you’ll want to flip the sandwiches over so that the other side will be toasted and nicely browned. I used a plastic spatula to flip my Grilled Cheese Sandwiches and it worked perfectly.

Key to Success #3 – Use Toothpicks To Keep Your Lids From Flipping
The Air Fryer uses a powerful fan to circulate the hot air around your food. This works great to speed cooking, but it can blow lighter items out of position if you’re not careful.

For the Grilled Cheese Sandwiches, I use toothpicks in the corners of each sandwich to make sure the top slice of bread doesn’t flip off.
One half-sandwich didn’t make it to the stack. Oops!
Bonus Tip! Always Cut Grilled Cheese Sandwiches on the Diagonal.
What kind of animal cuts a Grilled Cheese straight across? It should go without saying that Grilled Cheeses should be cut at a diagonal. Just ask my kids!

I’m kidding, I’m kidding. Cutting them on the diagonal does make them easier to dip into soup though. They are wonderful with Vegetable Beef Soup or Tomato Soup. Noah thinks I make the best Tomato Soup ever. (Thanks, Campbell’s!)

These Grilled Cheese sandwiches always turn out great and are very easy to make. Even kids can help with this recipe. I hope you’ll give them a try!

What The Huawei-Google Spat Means For You

Huawei's addition to the US trade blocklist has been temporarily lifted, allowing Google, Intel, Qualcomm and others to do business with the phone maker once again. We explain how the news affects existing customers.
Huawei's future outside China is looking a little shaky right now following Google's decision to comply with President Trump's ruling over the company, which saw it added to the US trade blocklist. Google vowed to no longer support Huawei (or sub-brand Honor) phones and tablets, meaning future devices would not be able to run Google apps and services.
