Next, cover each with another slice of pepperoni to make a sandwich or “bite”.

Cooking Tips

  • Make sure there’s enough cream cheese in between the pepperoni’s to make the bites stick together
  • Be sure to lay the pepperoni “sandwiches” out in a single layer in the air fryer for the most even cooking
  • If any of the pepperoni’s come off the cream cheese during the cooking process, just replace the tops of the bites

Is It Ok To Put Cheese In The Air Fryer?

Yes. Some varieties of hard cheese (such as shredded) might blow around in the air fryer basket, so you might need to weigh it down with other ingredients. If you use a soft cheese (like cream cheese), it will melt a bit, but it is relatively easy to clean-up after cooking. You can try using air fryer liners for easier clean-up. The food will still crisp up, but any oil or melted ingredients will stay inside the liner.
