How To Make Air Fryer Eggplant Parmesan
Enjoy this oil-free air fryer eggplant parmesan at the comfort of your home. Each eggplant comes off as crispy and crunchy with mozzarella cheese on top.
Combine bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, basil, garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper in a shallow bowl. Place flour in a separate shallow bowl and beaten eggs in a third shallow bowl.
Dip sliced eggplant first in flour, then in beaten eggs, and finally coat with bread crumb mixture. Place coated eggplant on a plate and let rest for 5 minutes.
Preheat an air fryer to 370 degrees F (185 degrees C).
Place breaded eggplant rounds in the air fryer basket making sure they are not touching; work in batches if necessary.
Cook for 8 to 10 minutes, flip each round and cook until desired crispiness is achieved for 4 to 6 minutes more. Top each eggplant round with marinara sauce and 1 slice of mozzarella cheese.
Place the basket back in the air fryer and cook until cheese has started to melt for1 to 2 minutes. Repeat with the remaining eggplant, if necessary.
