Suffice it to say that the air fryer is the answer to always crispy, always gooey grilled cheese sandwiches. Here’s how to make them — and maybe teach your kids to make them, too.
Grate 4 oz. sharp cheddar cheese and 4 oz. Monterey Jack cheese on the large holes of a box grater (about 1 cup each). Toss together in a medium bowl.
Spread unsalted room temperature butter onto one side of each of 4 slices of bread.
Flip 2 of the slices over and divide the cheese evenly over these slices. Close the sandwiches with the remaining 2 bread slices butter-side up. Press the sandwiches slightly to close.
Place in the basket and air fry for 3 minutes at 375ºF. Flip the sandwich and air fry until golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes more.
