Kimchi grilled cheese is one of my favorite comfort foods. It’s a delicious fusion of spicy and creamy, crunchy and gooey, sour and savory. And the best part is, it’s super easy to make in an air fryer!

Kimchi is a traditional Korean fermented cabbage dish that has many health benefits. It’s rich in probiotics, vitamins, and antioxidants. It also adds a lot of flavor and texture to any dish. You can find kimchi in most Asian grocery stores or make your own at home.

For this recipe, you will need:

  • Sourdough bread (or any crusty bread of your choice)
  • Organic sharp cheddar cheese (or any melty cheese of your choice)
  • Kimchi (or sauerkraut if you don’t like spicy food)
  • Butter
  • Mayonnaise (optional)
  • Sriracha sauce (optional)

Here are the steps to make this amazing kimchi grilled cheese in an air fryer:

  1. Preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  2. Butter one side of each bread slice. If you like, you can also spread some mayonnaise and sriracha sauce on the other side for extra flavor and creaminess.
  3. Place one bread slice, buttered side down, on a cutting board. Top it with cheese slices and kimchi. Cover with another bread slice, buttered side up. Repeat with the remaining bread, cheese, and kimchi.
  4. Place the sandwiches in the air fryer basket in a single layer. You may need to do this in batches depending on the size of your air fryer.
  5. Air fry for 10 minutes, flipping halfway through, until the bread is golden and crisp and the cheese is melted.
  6. Enjoy your kimchi grilled cheese while it’s hot and ooey-gooey!
