  • 20g butter , softened
  • 2 slices sourdough or other bread
  • ½ tsp English mustard
  • 50g grated mature cheddar or gruyère
  • 1 tbsp chopped chives (optional)
  • 1 thick slice of ham


  1. Heat the air-fryer to 190C. Butter the slices of bread on one side each, then combine the remaining butter with the mustard, cheese and chives, if using. Season with black pepper.

  2. Spread the cheese mixture over the plain sides of the bread, then sandwich the ham between the two slices so the buttered sides are facing out. Air-fry for 10 mins, turning once until golden and crunchy on the outside, and the cheese has melted in the middle.
