Vortex Air Fryer Grill Cheese

Vortex Air Fryer Grill Cheese

Yes, that beautiful grill cheese was made in a Vortex Air Fryer in under 10 minutes!!!

I am going to tell you my grill cheese secret but you have to promise NOT to tell anyone!!!

What is the secret to a perfect grill cheese sandwich?

Everyone thinks the outside should be covered with butter. Nope, Mayo. Yes, a thin layer of mayo will give you a perfect grill cheese every time. Works on a grill, in a pan, air fryer, oven and more!

I prefer Dukes but you can use Hellman’s, I wouldn’t use Miracle Whip though. You can I just haven’t tried it so I can’t recommend it.

Vortex Air Fryer Grill Cheese

Soooo easy!!! Put cheese, meat, and anything else you want in the middle and cover both sides with a little mayo. Put in the air fryer for 4 minutes and then flip!
