This Air Fryer Simple Grilled American Cheese Sandwich is ready in only a few minutes and has 50% less fat calories than using a Skillet!
I wasn’t planning on making a blog post for this sandwich. I was hungry, it was lunch time and I wanted a simple Grilled American Cheese Sandwich and wanted to play around with my new
toy Air Fryer. There was no thought, really. I have been testing out the GoWise USA 3.7 Quart Air Fryer and have been trying out various types of food and cooking methods.

We stopped buying bread in this house, as commercial bread is made so quickly in a factory and many people believe they are gluten intolerant, as a result of the feeling they get after eating commercial bread. I don’t use commercial yeast in most of the bread I make and prefer natural fermentation, Sourdough Starter. This Air Fryer Simple Grilled American Cheese Sandwich is on Hokkaido Milk Sandwich Loaf bread is simply delicious. At 50% less fat calories than cooking in a skillet, your waistline will ask for more.
All I did was butter one side of the bread and throw some cheese in between. We keep our bread frozen, so it is easier to butter. There is really not as much as it looks like on the bread. The butter was quite cold and not spreading. I probably used 1/2 a teaspoon.
That’ll be it folks! Quick lunch, melty, toasted perfectly. Serve with a delicious piping hot bowl of my homemade Pressure Cooker Nordstrom Tomato Basil Soup. Enjoy!
This was my first experience with Air Fryers. There are lots of great recipes on my blog to try, such as Air Fryer Chinese Salt and Pepper Pork Chops, Air Fryer Hamburger Hamlet’s Zucchini Zircles, Air Fryer Crispy Honey Garlic Chicken Wings and so much more. If you don’t have an Air Fryer, you don’t know what you are missing.
