My kids love to eat out. We don’t do it often, but when they do, they like to go whole hog: appetizers, dinner and dessert. Well, I have to draw the line somewhere, and they usually choose appetizers over desserts. They’ve loved mozzarella sticks for as long as I can remember, but the last time we went out they chose something new: fried ravioli.
Oh. My. Gosh. Sooooo good.
On New Year’s Eve, we did an “appetizer” dinner, and I made our own fried ravioli using the Brookshire’s recipe. I was amazed how easy it was using a package of frozen cheese ravioli found in the freezer section of your local Brookshire’s. The boys LOVED it and are already asking for them again.
2 Tbsp Brookshire’s Whole Milk
3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 (25 oz) pkg frozen cheese ravioli, thawed
1 (16 oz) jar spaghetti sauce
vegetable oil, for frying
1 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
In a small bowl, combine milk and the egg. Place bread crumbs and salt in a shallow bowl. Dip ravioli in milk mixture and coat with bread crumbs. In a large saucepan, heat spaghetti sauce over medium heat until bubbling. Reduce heat to simmer. In a large heavy pan, pour oil to a depth of 2 inches.
Heat oil over medium heat until a small amount of breading sizzles and turns brown. Fry ravioli 1 minute on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese and serve immediately with hot marinara sauce.
