AIR FRYER EGGPLANT PARMESAN Air-Fried Eggplant Though it takes minutes to cook to a crispy perfection, parmesan is easier to make than the traditional dish! Make cheesy crunchy roasted vegetables that are sure to please the whole family.


  1. One eggplant
  2. One whisked egg
  3. One-fourth cup of Italian breadcrumbs
  4. 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese, grated
  5. half a teaspoon of powdered garlic
  6. half a teaspoon of dried basil
  7. Half a cup of marinara sauce
  8. Half a cup of shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Slice the eggplant into ¼-inch pieces and transfer it to a baking sheet or colander. After adding salt, leave the aubergine for at least fifteen minutes.
  2. Set your air fryer to 370 degrees before using.
  3. In one bowl, place the egg, and in another, combine the Parmesan cheese, breadcrumbs, basil, and garlic powder.
  4. Making sure to properly coat each slice, dip each eggplant slice into the egg and then the breadcrumb mixture.
  5. Spread out the breaded eggplant slices in an air fryer tray so they do not touch, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes, spritzing with oil and turning halfway through.
  6. Place a tsp of marinara sauce and mozzarella cheese on top of each slice of eggplant.
  7. To ensure the cheese melts completely, close the air fryer and cook the eggplant for one minute. Then, switch off the air fryer and let the eggplant remain for an additional minute.
  8. Take out of the air fryer the eggplant parm and serve!
