Recipe: Fried Ravioli

Making Fried Ravioli is so easy…. and you won’t believe just how inexpensive it is to make your own. I like to serve a variety of hors’douvres to my guests…. something for everyone…. but that can get expensive. There are frozen breaded ravioli in the freezer section in the grocery store but you don’t get many in a box and they’re not cheap…. so making it yourself ahead can save you quite a bit.

This can be a terrific make ahead hors’dourve for your party. You can make them ahead and freeze them until you’re ready to use them. To freeze put them on baking sheets lined with waxed paper and freeze for about 10 minutes (to avoid them freezing in clumps)…. Then store in an airtight container or bag until you want to make them. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F and bake for about 8 minutes.

I used Giada De Laurentis’ s method of using buttermilk instead of a milk/egg coating… I found the bread crumbs adhered better with the buttermilk.

Quantities will depend on how many you are making.

I hope you try these!


Recipe: Fried Ravioli

All you need:

1 box ravioli (found in the refrigerator section of the grocery store)
Italian seasoned bread crumbs
Oil for frying

All you need to do:

Line one cookie sheet with waxed paper and set aside.

Line one cookie sheet with a double layer of paper towels and set aside.

Pour the buttermilk into a shallow bowl (start with about ¾ of a cup and refill if necessary)

Put about 1 cup of seasoned breadcrumbs into a shallow bowl (refill as necessary).

Dip the ravioli in the buttermilk, letting excess drip off.

Then dip the ravioli in the seasoned bread crumbs.

Place the breaded ravioli on the cookie sheet with waxed paper.

In a large skillet, heat about 1 inch of oil to 325 degrees. Using a skillet helps because the surface area is larger than a pot.

Gently drop the breaded raviolis in the oil and fry until the underside is a light golden brown, then gently roll the ravioli over to brown the other side.

When both sides are a light golden brown, remove and drain on the cookie sheet with paper towels.

Serve with marinara sauce.

Linda, These look wonderful. I've seen Giada make them. They are a crowd pleaser.

Linda what I meant by my comment at fab 40 was that I discovered Yana was making money off of our blogs and postings using click per pay. Most sites the writer makes the money using click per pay. She is making money from our blogs. That is why I stopped blogging and posting there. Even if you pay to upgrade, you get no benefits except possibly site exposure.
