  • 4 slices sandwich bread whole grain, white, sourdough... use your favorite
  • 4 teaspoons salted butter softened to room temperature
  • 2 ounces sharp cheddar cheese
  • 2 ounces sharp white cheddar cheese


  • Preheat air fryer at 360° F for 4 minutes.
  • Spread one side of each slice of bread with the softened butter.
  • Assemble the sandwiches by placing one ounce of each type of cheese in between two slices of bread, with the butter sides facing the outside.
  • Air fry at 360° F for 3-5 minutes, or until the top slices of bread are golden brown and crispy. Then flip the sandwiches over and continue cooking for 2-4 more minutes, until the other side is golden brown and the cheese is melty. Serve immediately.


  • Use any type of cheese that melts well, such as sharp cheddar, white cheddar, mozzarella, Monterey jack, pepper jack, provolone or American.
  • Medium thickness bread is best. Bread that’s sliced too thinly will dry out or burn in the air fryer. If you use a thick-cut bread you may have to add a few minutes to the cook time.
  • Check on the sandwiches often as they cook. The cook time will depend on the thickness and type of bread you use, and may also vary between air fryers.
