1. Grilled Cheese & Tomato Basil Soup

I love making grilled cheese in the air fryer because it is so tasty and crunchy. But you don’t need to stop at just grilled cheese. On busy nights, I love to serve air fryer grilled cheese with a tasty and hearty tomato basil soup. Normally, I just like to use this premade tomato soup. Then I’ll add some quinoa to the soup to get some extra protein.
