You can never go wrong with an Air Fryer Croissant Sandwich after a long day of work. Especially when you don’t want to exert a bunch of energy but still have a tasty lunch or dinner. This was one of the reasons our viewer, Lisa, shared this recipe with us! Thanks, Lisa!

It can be made in a matter of minutes, and of course, since you are building these sandwiches how you like, it is perfect to feed the whole family. 

You can keep it simple with a little deli meat and cheese, or get fancy with it and add some avocado, onions, cucumbers, tomatoes, or anything else that sounds good!

Why are the croissants sprayed with oil?

When you use the oil on the croissant it allows the outside of the bread to get nice and crispy, delivering that nice crunch. But it enables the inside to stay wonderfully tender and fluffy.

Do you toast the toppings too? 

You can do it one of two ways. First, you can just air fry the croissant and call it a day. Or, you can also add the meat and cheese and toast them with the croissant. 

However, I would not air fryer the tomatoes, avocado, and such if plan to add them to the sandwich.


How to make Air Fryer Croissant Sandwiches:

Step 1: Prepare the croissants

Start by cutting the croissants in half and then use your oil sprayer to spray each side of the croissants with a little oil.

Step 2: Air fry croissants

Once you have the croissants prepped, air fry them for 2 minutes at 350 degrees F or 177 degrees C. 

Then, flip and toast the bread for an additional 2 minutes.

Step 3: Add the protein

After the bread is toasted, place the sliced turkey and cheese on the toasted croissant slices.

Continue to air fry for an additional 2 minutes, or until the cheese is melted to your liking.

Step 4: Top the sandwiches
