Air Fryer Eggplant Fries

Ingredients

  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 medium eggplant (about 1-1/4 pounds)
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 cup meatless pasta sauce, warmed

Directions

  • Preheat air fryer to 400°. In a shallow bowl, whisk eggs. In another shallow bowl, mix cheese, wheat germ and seasonings.
  • Trim ends of eggplant; cut eggplant lengthwise into 1/2-in.-thick slices. Cut slices lengthwise into 1/2-in. strips. Dip eggplant in eggs, then coat with cheese mixture.
  • Spritz eggplant and air fryer basket with cooking spray. Working in batches if needed, place eggplant in a single layer in air fryer basket and cook until golden brown, 5-7 minutes. Turn eggplant; spritz with additional cooking spray. Continue cooking until golden brown, 4-5 minutes. Serve immediately with pasta dipping sauce.
Test Kitchen tip

  • In our testing, we have found cook times vary dramatically between brands of air fryers. As a result, we have given wider than normal ranges on suggested cook times. Begin checking at the first time listed and adjust as needed.
