Air Fryer Ham and Swiss Melts is one of those recipe so ridiculously easy, that it almost feels wrong calling it a “recipe”.
But hey…we all need ideas for quick dinners or lunches that are a little extra special, right?!
I made Everything Bagel Smoked Salmon Sandwiches and had four extra bagel thins.
So I took inspiration from the Hawaiian Roll ham and swiss sliders that have the seasoned butter brushed over top.
And combined the bagel thins with the melty, cheesy slider idea and threw them in the air fryer.
The result was a delicious, unique hot sandwich that only took minutes to make 🙂
How to Make Air Fryer Ham and Swiss Melts
For the sandwich part I have the leftover bagel thins, deli sliced ham, and swiss cheese.
The butter, Worcestershire sauce, dijon mustard, and onion powder is the addition that gets brushed over top.
And the poppy seeds are for fun, and also many slider recipes use it so that was my thinking there.
I spread some mayo on the bottom of each bagel and added some ham.
I folded or tore it to make the slices fit on the bagel.
Then a slice of swiss goes over the ham.
The melted butter with the Worcestershire, dijon mustard, and onion powder gets brushed over top.
Next put the sandwiches in the air fryer basket.
And sprinkle the poppy seeds over top.
Everything bagel seasoning would be a great thing to sprinkle over top in place of the poppy seeds too!
Set the air fryer to 370 degrees for 5 to 7 minutes to melt these beauties 🙂
Air Fryer Ham and Swiss Melts are crispy on the outside and melty perfection on the inside 🙂
I had the best luck letting them cool for a minute and then removing them with a spatula.
This was our weekend lunch, but could be a perfect easy dinner.
