Tips for Making Air Fryer Ham and Cheese Sandwiches:
Remember that these can be made in the Ninja Foodi with the Air Crisp Function or in the traditional air fryer.
As always watch the cooking time the first time you make them as air fryers tend to put off a different level of heat.
Build the sandwich right in the air fryer with a buttered slice of bread along with the cheese and meat then another slice of bread on top with butter.
After it’s built, then it’s time to cook for 5 minutes on each side at 360°F or until it’s crisp to your liking.
Continue to make these until you have the amount of sandwiches you need.
Personally, I love that I can just make myself one for lunch when it’s just me and not have a bunch of leftovers!
