Air Fryer Tomato Grilled Cheese

In our home, we love grilled cheese! We make it at lunch or pair it with a delicious bowl of tomato soup for dinner. When my kids were little I was like the grilled cheese factory making sandwich after sandwich. By the time it was my turn to eat the pan was usually too hot so I was eating a very crispy burnt sandwich. Thankfully we have come a long way since then thanks to my air fryer. I can now make my whole family Air Fryer Grilled cheese sandwiches that are cooked to perfection every time, all at the same time! One of our favorite recipes is this Air Fryer Tomato grilled cheese. You will fall in love with the flavor and it will soon become your go-to grilled cheese sandwich. And if you love pesto, be sure to try our air fryer tomato, pesto, and mozzarella grilled cheese sandwich

Tips Tricks and FAQs

  • Feel free to use your favorite variety of cheese when making these sandwiches.
  • Choose your favorite bread. You can use classic white, to sourdough, or even Texas toast if you prefer. 
  • Cooked bacon pieces add the perfect crunch to this sandwich. You can layer the cooked pieces between the cheese and tomato prior to cooking. You can even add a slice of ham if you prefer.
  • Be sure to preheat your Air fryer prior to cooking your sandwiches. 
  • When making these sandwiches you do not need to use cooking spray. The butter on the bread will help prevent sticking.
