These easy Air Fryer Grilled Ham and Cheese sandwiches are a perfectly crispy way to enjoy the classic combination of ham and cheese!
- 8 slices bread
- 8 slices cheese (or roughly ½ cup shredded cheese per sandwich)
- 8 slices ham
- 4 tbsp butter (softened, at room temperature)
Preheat your air fryer to 370 degrees F (188 degrees C). For a convection style air fryer, select ‘AIR FRY‘ and set the timer to 8 minutes.
Butter the slices of bread. For a convection style oven, place half the buttered bread slices onto the air fryer racks facing down.
Add sliced or shredded cheese portions. Trim excess cheese from edges if desired.
Add ham slices.
Top the sandwich with the second buttered slice of bread facing upward. Add garlic salt, if desired.
For a convection style air fryer: Add the racks with the sandwich(es) when the indicator says to ‘ADD FOOD‘. Flip the sandwiches when the indicator says to ‘TURN FOOD‘ and move the bottom rack to the top, and the top rack to the bottom for even cooking.
For a basket style air fryer: Place the basket with the sandwich(es) into your air fryer and set for 5 minutes. When the 5-minute cook cycle is done, flip the sandwich or sandwiches and cook for an additional 3 minutes.
