Six Minute Grilled Cheese

The crispy-crunchy bread is complemented by melted cheese for a decadent buffet of textures and flavors you savor with each bite. Cooking directly on the rails of the SearNSizzle™ allows air to flow underneath the bread combining both conduction and convection cooking to make this sandwich even more yummy. We love using American cheese in this sandwich as a throwback to our childhoods. But you can use any other cheese that melts well. Brie, Cheddar, Gouda, Havarti, Provolone, Pepper Jack, and Muenster are all cheeses that work wonderfully on this sandwich too.

1Set the SearNSizzle™ to the middle position and broil for 5 minutes to preheat.

2While preheating, slather one side of each of the bread pieces with mayonnaise.

3Once the SearNSizzle™ is preheated, place one slice of bread on the SearNSizzle™ with the mayonnaise side down. Top the bread with the cheese slices and then with the bread mayonnaise side up.

4Adjust the cooker to air fry at 390 F and cook for three minutes per side flipping once or until your desired doneness.

This grilled cheese can be prepared with the rails of the SearNSizzle™ facing up for a grilled look or on the griddle side of the SearNSizzle™ for an overall browned consistency. 

The mayonnaise makes this dish extremely rich and decadent tasting. If you prefer to use half the amount of cheese in this recipe the sandwich will be just as delicious with slightly less richness.


4 tbsp mayo or softened butter

2 slices of thick bread

2 slices of American Cheese

2 Slices of Cheddar Cheese
