  1. Put the eggs and panko into individual containers large enough for dipping the cauliflower. Whisk the eggs until homogonous. Add the parmesan, Italian seasoning, onion powder, garlic powder, and 1 teaspoon of salt to the panko; stir to combine.
  2. Dip the cauliflower into egg and then coat evenly with the panko breadcrumb mixture.
  3. Arrange the breaded cauliflower into a single layer in the AirFryer Basket and drizzle with olive oil. Place the basket in the AirFryer. Select AirFry, and set the time to 15 minutes and the temperature to 400°F. AirFry, flipping halfway through, until cauliflower is cooked through and evenly browned on both sides
  4. When the cauliflower is finished cooking, remove from the basket and sprinkle         with additional salt if desired. Top with giardiniera vegetables. Serve immediately.
