Toasted Ravioli Recipe – Italian Special
We are obsessed with ravioli, but most of the time we admit that the four pieces you get as a serving is not filling enough. That’s why it makes the perfect app. Breaded and fried, it is so fun to eat ravioli with your hands and dipping it in plenty of marinara. Bonus! Toasted ravioli works in the air fryer too, meaning you can skip all of the oil for an even more perfect appetizer.

Toasted Ravioli Ingredients:
- 3/4 to 1 pound small fresh ravioli (meat and/or cheese)
- 3 large eggs, beaten
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 cups breadcrumbs
- 3 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley
- 1 teaspoon finely chopped fresh rosemary
- Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
- Vegetable oil, for frying
- 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
- Marinara sauce, for dipping
How to Make Toasted Ravioli
Spread the ravioli on a baking sheet and freeze until hard, 20 to 30 minutes.
Whisk the eggs and milk in a shallow dish or pie plate. Mix the breadcrumbs, parsley, rosemary and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in another shallow dish.
Dip the ravioli in the egg mixture, letting the excess drip off, then coat with the breadcrumb mixture. Return to the baking sheet and freeze until hard, about 15 minutes.
Heat about 1 inch vegetable oil in a deep skillet until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350 degrees F. Fry the ravioli in 2 or 3 batches, turning as needed, until golden brown, 4 to 6 minutes per batch. Transfer to a paper towel-lined baking sheet to drain and immediately sprinkle with the parmesan. Serve with the marinara sauce.
