Reheating:

  1. Air Fryer:
    • Preheat the air fryer to 350°F (175°C).
    • Place the sandwich in the air fryer basket and heat for 3-5 minutes or until warmed through and crispy on the outside.
  2. Oven:
    • Preheat the oven to 350°F (175°C).
    • Place the sandwich on a baking sheet and warm for about 10 minutes or until heated through.

Note: It’s best to reheat using methods that restore the sandwich’s crispness. Microwaving is not recommended, as it can make the sandwich soggy.


Freezing:

  1. Freezing Prepared Sandwiches:
    • Let the cooked sandwiches cool completely.
    • Wrap each sandwich tightly in aluminum foil or plastic wrap.
    • Place wrapped sandwiches in a zip-top freezer bag, removing as much air as possible.
    • Label the bag with the date and contents. Freeze for up to 1 month.
  2. Reheating from Frozen:
    • You can reheat the sandwich directly from the freezer. Use the air fryer or oven method mentioned above, but extend the reheating time by a few minutes.

By following these storage, freezing, and reheating guidelines, you can enjoy your Air Fryer Monte Cristo Sandwiches at a later time, ensuring they remain as delectable as when first made. Perfect for meal planning or enjoying leftovers!
