I totally forgot that I wanted to share this recipe with you all. I made this a few weeks ago and photographed some of the steps. This is something I make for special occasions or when I just feel like making my kids REALLY happy. They LOVE these things, and to be honest, so do I! They are super yummy!
Here are the ingredients: Ravioli (cheese), marinara (for dipping), bread crumbs (I like Italian ones), parmesan cheese, flour, and eggs. Oh and you need oil to fry them in. I use Canola Oil.
Place your ravioli in a zip top bag and dump some flour on them. Seal the bag and shake it up to coat them. Some might be stuck together but that’s ok. When you go to get them our just separate them and dip them in the flour at the bottom of the bag.
When you fry them make sure to use a DEEP pot and only fill it 1/3 of the way full. The oil will bubble up when you add ravioli, especially on the last few batches when it has lots of bread crumbs in it. I fry 5 or 6 at a time depending on which pot I am using. Fry them to a dark golden brown. You know they are done when one of them opens and cheese starts to ooze out. Drain them on a paper towel and then serve with warm marinara sauce for dipping.
Recipe: Toasted Ravioli
From the Kitchen of: Emily Nelson
Yield: 16 oz.
- 1 16 oz. pkg. cheese ravioli, fresh or thawed
- 2 eggs beaten
- 1 c. flour
- 1 tsp. garlic salt (optional) I didn’t use it above but it does make it yummy…I guess I forgot!
- 1 c. plain breadcrumbs
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning (or just use Italian Breadcrumbs instead)
- 1/2 c. parmesan cheese
- vegetable oil for frying
Directions: Mix water with eggs and beat well; set aside. Mix Italian seasoning with the breadcrumbs. Add parmesan and garlic salt. Measure flour in a bowl. Heat oil in a deep fryer or medium saucepan to 350° for deep frying. Dip ravioli in flour (or use zip top bag to coat), then egg, then bread crumbs. And carefully place in oil. Fry until golden, remove from oil and set on a paper towel to drain. You can fry a few at a time, using a slotted spoon to remove them quickly when done. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce. This is a great appetizer.
