Toasted Ravioli – Toasted Ravioli. A super easy appetizer made with cheese ravioli fried until golden brown and topped with Parmesan cheese and fresh parsley. Serve with a marinara sauce for dipping!
I just found my new favorite appetizer! These Toasted Ravioli are so delicious and addicting. They are also super easy to throw together making them an awesome appetizer to serve at a party. Take your favorite ravioli (I did cheese) and dip them in an egg and milk mixture then in herb breadcrumbs. The ravioli get fried for 3-4 minutes or until they are golden brown.
How to make toasted ravioli
Combine your milk and eggs in a shallow bowl. Next add your breadcrumbs, parsley, oregano, garlic powder, and onion powder to another shallow bowl.
Dip ravioli into the egg mixture then into the breadcrumb mixture making sure to coat both sides.
Place the breaded ravioli on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Place in the freezer for 30 minutes.
Meanwhile, fill a large pot with at least 2 inches of oil and heat to 350 degrees F.
Remove ravioli from the freezer. Working in small batches cook the ravioli for 3-4 minutes.
Place the ravioli on a plate lined with paper towels and season with a sprinkle of salt and pepper.
Serve immediately with a sprinkle of parmesan cheese, parsley, and your favorite dipping sauce!
How to cook frozen toasted ravioli in the air fryer
To lighten up this recipe you can cook the ravioli in the air fryer. Follow the same steps as above but cook in the air fryer for 10-15 minutes at 400 degrees. I prefer to use refrigerated ravioli in this recipe. However fresh or frozen ravioli can be used. If using frozen you can thaw overnight or if you’re in a pinch frozen unthawed ravioli can be used. I would just give them 2-3 more minutes extra in the air fryer!
What to serve with the ravioli
Top the Toasted Ravioli’s with grated parmesan cheese and fresh chopped parsley. I love serving warm marinara with ravioli. Ranch dressing would also be amazing!
Can I use fresh or frozen ravioli?
I have used both fresh refrigerated ravioli as well as frozen ravioli. It’s very difficult to tell the difference between the two. I would go with what you can find in the supermarket or what you have on hand!
