Top tip: Add your favorite pizza toppings to customize your yummy sandwich!

How to store the leftovers?

Let the sandwich cool to room temperature before putting it in an airtight container. Place a paper towel in with it, as it will keep the sandwich from getting soggy. It will last up to four days in the refrigerator.

How to reheat the leftovers?

You can reheat a grilled cheese sandwich in a few ways. One, you could heat it up in the microwave (but I do not recommend this way). Two, you could reheat it in the air fryer (my preferred way). Three, you could wrap the sandwich in tin foil, place it on a cookie sheet, and reheat it in the oven. Or four, you could reheat it on a pan on the stove.
