Toasted Ravioli is a simple and quick appetizer to prepare with any meal! The crunchy coating is the perfect complement to the cheesy filling inside!
I hope everyone had a fantastic Mothers Day weekend! I had an exciting one myself.
Do any of you listen to country music? If so, this weekend Florida Georgia Line was in town so my mom and I went to see them on Saturday night. They were fantastic! The show was amazing! They played all of their hit songs plus a few I didn’t already know. Then of course, they closed out the show with “Cruise”. It was such a high energy night that I already want to see them again! If you like country music and they are coming somewhere near you, it is a must see show!
Then Sunday was a bit quieter. We, well really just I, made breakfast for my mom as well as made chocolate covered strawberries (per her request). We then relaxed at home, which was much needed because we were up really late the night before at the concert. Then, for dinner, we went to this restaurant/bar in Baltimore where they serve margaritas by the hubcap! Yes, you heard me correctly, BY THE HUBCAP. It is pretty much the greatest thing ever. We enjoyed a black berry margarita, the likes of which has inspired me to craft a copycat to post on this site later!
In the “relaxing” time however I did make us a snack, these Toasted Ravioli. They are so simple to make and so tasty! The outside is crunchy and slightly salty and when you bite into it the cheese filling just comes oozing out. They are addicting! You seriously can’t have just one. They are a great appetizer or snack to serve for any occasion! Yum!
- 1/2 cup all purpose flour
- 1 egg, beaten
- 1 cup Italian seasoned breadcrumbs or panko
- 12oz cheese ravioli, thawed
- Canola or vegetable oil
- Parsley (to garnish)
- Grated parmesean (to garnish)
- Prepare three separate dishes. In one, place the flour. In the second, place the beaten egg. In the third, place the seasoned breadcrumbs. Take each ravioli and dust each side in flour, then dip in egg, and finally press into breadcrumbs. Once all ravioli is breaded and coated on all sides, prepare the pan for frying.
- In a skillet over medium heat, pour cooking oil into pan so that the oil is about 1/4 inch deep. When warm, begin to fry the ravioli. Working in batches, place coated ravioli in oil to cook until browned and crispy, about 1 minute per side.
- Remove cooked ravioli to a plate lined with paper towel to drain. Allow to drain for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Once drained, serve the ravioli warm with marinara sauce if desired with parsley and parmesean to garnish.
