Air Fryer Mac And Cheese Ingredients:

Additional Air Fryer Mac And Cheese Ingredients:


  • Place into your air fryer baking pan the main 3 ingredients and mix well.
  • Place the air fryer on 160c/320f for 6 minutes.
  • After 6 minutes when it beeps stir and add in seasonings. Press the button again so it will do a further 6 minutes.
  • After 12 minutes, stir and add in the rest of the ingredients.
  • After its final 6 minutes and a total of 18 minutes, give it a final stir and it is ready to be served.
  • If adding a parmesan crust, mix in a bowl breadcrumbs with 50g of parmesan cheese and load onto the top of your baking pan once it has had a final stir at 18 minutes. Layer it so that there are no gaps and cook for a last 2 minutes at 180c/360f.


The total cooking time is 18 minutes if you are not adding a parmesan topping, or 20 minutes with one.
Avoid high fat milks or creams in the initial 3 ingredients. This is because it is too thick and will ruin the consistency of the pasta/cheese/milk combination.
Each time I set the time to 6 minutes as it is easier to keep track of needing to stir it at 6 minutes, 12 minutes and when it is cooked at 18 minutes.
The main 3 ingredients are your base ingredients. You can add in with your favourite other ingredients.
For bacon bits I cooked 3 bacon rashers in the air fryer first in the air fryer baking pan.
