If there’s one thing you might know about me it’s that I am in a deeply committed relationship with my air fryer. There’s not many things I haven’t tried to air fry, but I can’t believe how long it took me to air fry a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. It’s a classic combination that everyone loves, but something about crispy bread with a warm and gooey center is unreal.

How to Air Fry a Peanut Butter and Jelly

Air frying a sandwich is so simple! I’m shocked it took me this long to try it out. All you do is spread your favorite fillings on your slices of bread, butter each side, pop it in the air fryer at 400°F for 4 to 5 minutes and poof – a perfectly crispy, warm sandwich that anyone would love to devour. I made several versions of this PB&J for the kids, and each was gobbled up as quick as the last. Mix it up by adding nutella, sliced bananas or anything else your heart desires!

What’s the Best Air Fryer?

What’s the best air fryer? People ask me this question more than any other question I think, and I love telling everyone my thoughts! I have a couple favorites at the moment. The Philips Air Fryer XXL has never failed me, and I’ve been using it for years. Plus, it’s large enough to air fry a whole chicken! It’s incredible. If you’re looking for a more budget-friendly option, this Drew Barrymore Air Fryer is a great one that I’ve been using a lot too! It’s fantastic and looks gorgeous on your kitchen counter.

    Same for grilled cheese? Ps: the website is a little hard to handle with soooooo many ads interrupting.

    1. Hi! That sounds delicious. I haven’t tried a grilled cheese out yet myself, but I think it would work perfectly. Thanks for the comment! As far as ads go, my plan is to keep the recipes on Weelicious completely free to the public, so ads are how I’m able to do that without needing to create a paid membership website.
