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.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
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.
