Recipe: Air Fried Panco Crusted Eggplant

I've been trying out different foods in the air fryer and finally found something that came out good enough to share. lol

What you'll need:

1 Eggplant
1 Egg- beaten
1/2 Cup Panco bread crumbs
Salt and pepper
Whatever seasonings you like...I used Chili powder, chicken seasoning, garlic powder, and Italian  seasoning. 

What To Do: 

Cut 4 eggplant slices about an 1/2 inch thick. 
Salt each piece a little bit and lay on a paper towel to drain off some of the moisture for 30 minutes. After 30 minutes, pat dry. You can leave the salt on. 

Add whatever seasonings you like to your bread crumbs. Dip each piece of eggplant in the egg mixture first and then each side into the bread crumbs. Place into the air fryer basket and cook for 18 minutes at 375 degrees. Flip each piece one time about half way through cooking time so each side gets brown and crispy. 

If you like eggplant, you'll probably like this. They came out so good. 

For two pieces it's only 70 calories and 15 carbs, so it's still good for my low carb diet.
