01/25/2021 I am still trying to win the war with my air fryer, but this recipe gave me hope for its future! I tried a piece of eggplant before adding sauce and cheese (which I did in the regular broiler because I was picturing mess in the air fryer) and I loved it.

02/27/2021 I never would have thought you could cook eggplant in the air fryer. When I saw this recipe I knew I had to give it a try.

Even my husband who thinks he doesn't like eggplant tried a piece and then went back for more. What a great dinner with some garlic bread. I will definitely make this again.

04/01/2020 I layered it with sauce and mozzarella in the oven for just 5-10 minutes after air -frying it. My father-in-law who has never had eggplant and needed a non-meat meal for lent, loved it.

I also did not add the extra spices as I knew they were already in the Italian breadcrumbs. I also used pinko Italian breadcrumbs and I hand grated Parmesan -Romano cheese in the breadcrumb mixture.

08/09/2020 These tasted better than eggplantparmesan that was baked in the oven. The crisp eggplant was very satisfying and overall the entire meal was fresh and delicious.

The only thing I changed or added was I spread a little ricotta cheese on the baked eggplant then topped it with mozzarella. I also did not put the sauce on the eggplant until the cheese was melted.

06/30/2021 I loved using the air fryer to cook the eggplant, but my husband didn’t like all the “extra” spices. They overwhelmed the taste a bit.

I’ll use the air fryer again to cook the eggplant, but stick to regular Italian bread crumbs without extra add-ins. I even froze the cooked extra slices for another time.

Traditionally, eggplantparmesan requires frying breaded eggplant slices in hot oil. We don’t need to fry them because we are going to use the crisping power of our air fryer to make the eggplant perfectly crispy without all that oil.

For the complete list of ingredients and instructions, please see the recipe below. Making this recipe vegan is pretty simple with some substitutions.

Use maple syrup instead of the egg to stick the breadcrumbs to the eggplant. It is not required that you peel eggplant for making eggplantparmesan, and actually I prefer to leave the skin on.

The skin is generally tender and the texture is lovely in most dishes. Place cooked slices in a zipper bag in the freezer.

Then flip over each eggplant piece and cook for an additional 4 minutes. Gently spoon sauce onto each individual piece of eggplant.

Cook in your air fryer at 380F for 2 minutes or until cheese is melted. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to prepare this recipe in batches.
