So to properly reheat a sandwich in an air fryer you must follow a certain procedure to get the best-reheated sandwich with full crispiness and taste. So without wasting time, I am going to elaborate full method to reheat sandwiches in an air fryer in the following steps
Step 1. Getting ready for reheating
The sandwich comes up with different kinds of ingredients in it. In case the sandwich contains Mayonnaise and cheese, then you should use parchment specifically on the basket of the air fryer. It will prevent the air fryer from getting messy and will prevent bread to become too crispy. Apart from that, you are also advised to use toothpicks to keep the slices of the sandwich connected and to confine the ingredients.
Step 2. Put the sandwich in the air fryer
The next step in reheating a sandwich in an air fryer is to put the sandwich in parchment in the basket. You have to be a bit cautious on this level. You should place the ingredients in a single layer to reheat all ingredients equally. If you have more ingredients that don’t fit in a single layer, then do not pile things up. You should reheat the remaining ingredients in the next shift. Apart from that make sure there is enough space between the sandwiches and they must not overlap with each other. You should leave proper spaces for hot air to move around different layers of sandwiches.
Step 3. Reheat sandwich
Now at this point, preheat the air fryer to 350°F for about a couple of minutes. Then reheat the sandwich for about 4 to 5 minutes at 350 degrees. If the size of the sandwich is average then it will heat well otherwise large size sandwiches take more than that. After heating one side of the sandwich, then remove the basket and turn the sides of the sandwich, and heat them up for 2 more minutes. Now, the sandwich should be completely and evenly heated at its temperature of around 165°F. You can check the temperature by using a thermometer or by using a butter knife to feel the temperature. Once you are satisfied with the warmth and crispiness of your sandwich, then take it out of the air fryer. Allow the sandwich to stand for a few minutes and eat it with your favorite sauce.
