Fried Ravioli


We were in clean up and de-clutter mode at out house the other day. Going through the fridge and freezer we find items that need to be used before that expire. This round was some frozen cheese ravioli and some pasta sauce. My wife and I have had the fried ravioli from restaurants and so we  decided to try it at home. Here is our thrown together fried cheese ravioli recipe that turned out pretty darn good!

Fried Cheese Ravioli  
Frozen Ravioli - thawed (we had cheese but can use any). We let it sit out on the counter then finish in the fridge as it started to soften.
1 Egg beaten
1 Tbsp Water
1 C All purpose flour
1 C Yellow Cornmeal
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/3 C grated parmesan cheese
Salt - to taste
Pepper - to taste
Oil - enough for frying, we used Wesson oil in a cast iron skillet (about 1/2" worth)

Heat oil to frying temp.
Beat eat and add 1 Tbsp water
Combine and mix flour, cornmeal, italian seasoning, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper.
Take thawed ravioli, dip into egg and place into flour mixture. (I did about 8 at a time since that was the size of the container I used.) Once your oil is ready for frying (test with a small pinch of flour, if it bubbles, its ready. If it doesn't, it's not.... that simple). Retrieve your coated ravioli shaking off excess back into the flour. Slowly place into the hot oil with tongs or a slotted spoon. Allow them to fry for 2 to 3 minutes on each side. (NOTE: As they cook, they will "puff up") Once they have reached a light golden color and have "puffed" some. Remove from oil and place on plate that has been lined with a paper towel. Cover with tinfoil until ready to serve. Serve as as you can.


Heat some marinara for a dipping sauce. You can also use ranch dressing for a dip.

Hope you and yours enjoy!
As always, thanks for looking.
