        Air Fryer Grilled Cheese

        One of the first things I learned how to cook growing up was a good ole iron skillet butter smothered grilled cheese sandwich. Like many of you, I love to experiment with my new appliances to see what is possible as I measure the quality of the dish and compare it to traditional methods. For me, a crispy hot grilled cheese is one of life’s simple pleasures and believe you me when I say it just got even easier. Fresh thick bread covered with a taste bud popping spread that creates a glistening appearance while maintaining that butter saturated texture you would cook up in grandma’s old skillet is what this cheese dripping recipe will deliver.

        My favorite thing about an appliance like my Air Fryer, is how versatile I become in my ability to cook a good meal on the road or the times when I just don’t feel like scrubbing a bunch of dishes. Also, for those of us with a growing kitchen staff of teenagers in the home, it is nice to have a a cheap and easy to make snack when hungry and rummaging for something to eat. The bread out of the air fryer is so crispy and taste saturated that it awakens your flavor receptors as they prepare for the comfort that may only be provided by a mouthful of your favorite hot melted cheese.

        No more butter steaming from an Iron skillet all over the kitchen and your face, simply follow the instructions provided with this recipe and have a delicious ready tasty hot sandwich on a plate near you.

            Air Fryer Homemade Biscuits

            Pass the biscuits please! Follow this recipe for 8 minute biscuits. Thats right, you will have traditional style biscuits in as little as 8 minutes using the air fryer convention technique. If you do not have an oven handy, have plans to be on the road or live in a dorm you will definitely enjoy having fresh made biscuits that your grandma would love anytime anywhere. I have worked over time to make a recipe for biscuits that my very traditional southern husband loves to eat. I have tweaked that method a bit to fit the air fryer and it works. In the south making a good biscuit can make you a legend in your own family. Soft filling comfort food that is great served with honey, butter or my kids favorite, with sausage gravy. If you have never had a good homemade biscuit, you should watch the video and follow the detailed instructions below to find out for your self what all the fuss is about.

            Traditional food from the different regions of the world are largely based on what type of ingredients are available there and what the culture is like. Soft fluffy southern style biscuits are no exception as flour is used heavily in southern style foods from fried food to gravy, you will likely find flour somewhere near the cooking area as an enhancement to the food experience. No better way to experience what flour can do than having a delicious warm biscuit with some eggs and bacon to fill the eat. My favorite way to enjoy a fresh made biscuit is to cover it with some local honey and butter, it goes great with morning coffee or as a standalone snack. Like and share this or any of my recipes you find interesting from my daily growing catalogue of meal ideas and presentation suggestions.

            Fluffy homemade biscuits

            In a large bowl: combine flour, salt, sugar, baking powder and COLD butter. Use a pastry cutter or your hand to mix until it begins to form coarse crumbs.

            Add milk and knead the dough in the bowl for a few minutes. The dough will be sticky at first but once you knead everything it will be fine. If the dough is still sticky add 1 tbsp of flour and knead until it is no longer sticky.

            Transfer the dough to a floured surface. Pat the dough out to ¾” to 1″ thick.

            Use a biscuit cutter or glass to shape the biscuits. You should have 9-10 biscuits.

            Preheat the air fryer to 380°F.

            Place the biscuits in the air fryer basket and cook for 8 mintues or until golden brown on top. (Depending on the size of your air fryer: repeat this step as necessary).

            Optional: brush melted butter or honey over the top of the biscuits. Serve immediately and enjoy!
