Easy Air Fryer Fried Eggplant Recipe: Crispy, Crunchy & Craveable by 30Seconds Food
This crispy fried eggplant recipe is healthier because it's cooked in your air fryer. Salting the eggplant before frying helps draw out moisture, so it will get crispy and not soggy. So don't skip this step.
Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 11 to 12 minutes
Total Time: 31 to 32 minutes
- 1 large eggplant, cut into rounds
- 2/3 cup breadcrumbs
- 3 tablespoons freshly grated Parmesan
- 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning
- 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder (or to taste)
- 2 eggs
- 1 tablespoon milk or nut milk
- 1/3 cup flour
Here's how to make it:
- Put the eggplant into a colander or on a baking sheet. Sprinkle with a little salt and let it sit for about 15 minutes.
- Preheat the air fryer to 380 degrees F.
- In a bowl, combine the breadcrumbs, cheese, Italian seasoning and garlic powder. In another bowl, beat the eggs and milk. Put the flour into another bowl.
- Rinse the salt off the eggplant and pat dry with paper towels. Dip the eggplant into flour, then into the egg then into the breadcrumbs. Put the eggplant into the air fryer in a single layer. Mist with cooking spray.
