Can you put cheese in an air fryer?

Yes, you can put cheese and cook it in an air fryer and obtain the same result as baking, but faster and with less smell. I like to cook in my air fryer and to save time and mess. It gets softer and cheesy.

Can you make it crispy in an air fryer?

Cooking a sandwich at a high-speed temperature in an air fryer will make it crispy and crunchy. Even though you may need a small amount of oil, it cooks like oven-baked but quicker and perfectly. 

What is the best temperature to toast a sandwich?

It depends on the thickness and the ingredients you are using. A simple and ordinary cheesy sandwich with ham, like mine, will be cooked in an air fryer to 350F and then raised to 400F. 

The ingredients for the sandwich:

  • Sandwich bread or toast. I have used four slices.
  • Ham: you can use either pork or turkey ham. 4-6 slices, depending on what you want it to be.
  • Mayo or cream cheese here. You can use whatever you have at home. For example, I have used goat cream cheese as I like it more and how it pairs with ham.
  • Mozzarella and cheddar cheese, or any other cheese that melts. 

What cheese is best to use?

How to you make a cheese sandwich with ham in the air fryer?

This simple and easy process of making a homemade sandwich is nothing complicated but tasty and delicious.

Now assemble the sandwich: place slices of ham on one side of the bread and shredded mozzarella on the other inner side of the bread. Pair them and top some more shredded cheese on the top.

Recipe tips and variations: 

  • My air fryer is small, so I cook one sandwich at a time. If yours fits two sandwiches, make two at a time. 
  • Use parchment paper or aluminium foil to avoid the mess.
  • This is a versatile sandwich, so add or skip any ingredients you like. For example, you can add mushrooms, onion, tomatoes, meat, and others. 
  • Likewise, with the fillings, you can use plain yoghurt, mayo, cream cheese, butter, or even ketchup if you are okay with it. 
  • One can use a giant toothpick to be sure the sandwich isn’t running out of the basket when you try to get it.
