Air Fryer Grilled Cheese

The recipe below is a foundational air fryer grilled cheese sandwich recipe. You can, of course, add on and make this sandwich your own. I love adding Dijon mustard on my grilled cheese to add flavor. You can also try using mayonnaise instead of butter and adding some sliced tomatoes.
