How To Make Baked Eggplant Sticks
Coated with breadcrumbs and cheese, these Baked Eggplant Sticks are cooked to crisp perfection! This healthy snack is best served in marinara sauce.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and lightly spray with oil.
Place eggplant strips in a bowl and season with olive oil, salt and pepper. Set aside.
Combine breadcrumbs and parmesan cheese in a bowl, and egg whites in another.
Dip a few strips of eggplant at a time into the egg whites, then into the breadcrumbs. Using a fork, remove eggplant from crumbs and place on the baking sheets. Spray with more oil and bake for about 10 minutes in the middle rack.
Turn over and bake for about 5 minutes, or until golden. Serve hot.
Air Fryer Directions:
Cook in batches, putting the sticks in the basket in an even layer, careful not to overcrowd it. Spritz with olive oil spray.
Air Fry at 350 degrees F for 10 minutes, turning halfway.
