  • For ten minutes, preheat the air fryer to 360°F.
  • In a sizable bowl, combine the macaroni noodles, half-and-half, Velveeta, 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese, butter, cayenne (if desired), onion powder, black pepper, and garlic powder while the air fryer is heating up.
  • Mix everything together.
  • Pour the mixture into an air fryer baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
  • For 15–18 minutes, air fried (please refer to my comment regarding cook times below).
  • Every five minutes, stir to combine the ingredients.
  • Evenly scatter the remaining cheese shreds on top.
  • Fry for a further two to three minutes, or until melted and gently browned. Serve right away.


  • Depending on their size, shape, air circulation, heating element, etc., some of the various varieties of air fryers available today may cook food slower or faster than the one I’m using. So please remember that. Just an estimate based on the one I used applies to the cook time. Before shutting off your air fryer, please make sure your noodles are cooked through. Checking your noodles is best done after you Every time, stir them; this promotes uniform cooking of the noodles.
