  1. Wash, cut the eggplant in half, and scoop out its inner portion – you might as well discard it, because you have to make room for the filling.
  2. Preheat the air fryer at 360 degrees Fahrenheit (or 180 degrees Celsius).
  3. Drizzle a little bit of olive oil and sprinkle pepper onto the eggplants, then have them cook for 10 minutes.
  1. While the eggplants are precooked in the air fryer, you can prepare the filling.
  2. Wash and finely slice the garlic cloves.
  3. Wash and chop the parsley.
  4. Break the egg in a bowl and wish it well.
  5. Add the breadcrumbs, the parsley, the garlic, and some salt to taste.
  6. Mix it well and use the filling to stuff the eggplants when it’s halfway cooked.
  7. Once the first 10 minutes have expired and you’ve filled the eggplants with the moist ingredients, let it sit in the air fryer for another 5 – 8 minutes at the same temperatures.
  8. You can serve it with some feta cheese sprinkled on top, when it’s ready.

Try it with a twist:
If you are up for something lighter and easier to prepare, you can simply stuff each half of the eggplant with a whole egg and simply season it with salt, pepper, and fresh dill at the end!
