Each year my husband and I host a Christmas Eve Party for friends and family and I am always trying to come up with easy appetizers to prepare! This year I decided to try this recipe which I have created 2 different types. It is so easy but tastes like you slaved all day in the kitchen. A very nice finger food for any party.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Super duper easy and delicious! Using a pre-made ravioli makes these so simple to prepare. The added seasoning to the egg mixture adds a pop of flavor to the ravioli. They fry up nice and crunchy. The dipping sauces are a must and bring a bold flavor to the dish. Using different spices and creating two different flavor profiles will make party goers taste buds very happy. The Test Kitchen

How to Make Super Duper Easy Fried Ravioli - Yum!

Step-by-Step

  1. Italian Style Fried Ravioli

    After the cheese ravioli is thawed pat dry and set aside. In a shallow bowl beat 2 eggs with the capful of Mrs. Dash's Italian Seasoning Blend, mix well. In the next bowl, place the Italian panko bread crumbs, add a dash or 2 of salt, and a couple of turns of freshly ground pepper, mix.
  2. Dredge the ravioli through the egg wash and then into the bread crumbs. Place on a large dish or platter. Continue until all the ravioli is covered in the bread crumbs.
  3. Heat the canola oil to medium high heat and fry the ravioli 6 at a time. Keep the ones done warm until you are all done. Serve with a Marinara Sauce. I used Bertolli brand.
  4. Southwestern Fried Ravioli

    After the meat & cheese ravioli is thawed pat dry and set aside, in a shallow bowl beat 2 eggs with the capful of Mrs. Dash's Southwest Seasoning Blend, mix well. In the next bowl place the plain Panko bread crumbs, add a dash or 2 of salt, and a couple of turns of freshly ground pepper and the cayenne pepper, mix.
  5. Dredge the ravioli through the egg wash and then into the bread crumbs. Place on a large dish or platter. Continue until all the ravioli is covered in the bread crumbs.
  6. Heat the canola oil to medium high heat and fry the ravioli 6 at a time. Keep the ones done warm until you are all done. Serve with a salsa. I used my own homemade salsa.
  7. Note: There are so many variations to this recipe and if you make your own ravioli then the variations are endless! I was very pleased how my first run on this turned out and will be adding other variations in the future. Like spinach, portabella mushroom and cheese ravioli!
