How To Make air fryer eggplant parmigiana
1Cut eggplant into 1/4 inch circles. (do not peel) rinse and pat the eggplant dry.
2In a shallow dish, mix together Italian bread crumbs, grated Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, dried basil, garlic powder, onion powder, freshly ground black pepper
3Place flour in a separate shallow dish, then beat eggs in another.
4Preheat an air fryer to 370 degrees
5Dip eggplant slices in flour, eggs, & then in the breadcrumbs.
6Place breaded eggplant rounds in the air fryer basket, and gently brush with a bit of olive oil. Be sure not to overlap the egg plant rounds. You may need to work in batches. If that's the case, I set my oven to 170 and place the cooked ones on a pan and keep warm in the oven while I cook the next batch in the air fryer.
7Cook for 8 to 10 minutes,
8Flip each egg plant round, and brush the tops with a bit more olive oil and cook about 5 minutes more or until desired crispness is reached.
9Top each eggplant round with marinara sauce and 1 slice of fresh mozzarella cheese.
10Place the basket back in the air fryer and cook until cheese has started to melt, 1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with remaining eggplant, if necessary. NOTE: You can also broil in pan on oven if you were using it to keep the batches warm. Whatever you prefer.
11Plate and garnish each round with fresh, chopped parsley or fresh basil leaves. Serve!
