Do I have a recipe for you today! Fried Raviolis! So unbelievably delicious – and easy too! Several years ago I discovered Kikkoman Panko Bread Crumbs and it changed the way I cook. Panko bread crumbs are perfect for baking OR frying and provide that satisfying crunch to so many recipes. Many people don’t realize that Panko bread crumbs work well in both sweet and savory dishes. Check out the recipes for Crispy Baked French Toast and Apple Cranberry Crisp. Panko crumbs can be seasoned to create perfect flavor as well as that crunchy goodness.
Kikkoman was kind enough to send me some recipe suggestions as well as a sampling of their many products. Of course wanted to come up with my own recipe and I think you’re going to love it just as much as I do. My husband has already requested this for a game-day appetizer :) I served this with some warm marinara dipping sauce and it was a hit with hubby and the kiddos!
1/2 c Kikkoman Panko bread crumbs
1/2 c Italian seasoned bread crumbs
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1/2 tsp kosher salt
10-14 store bought fresh ravioli – not frozen (I used jumbo four-cheese)
1/3 c milk
oil for frying
marinara sauce for dipping (optional)
Bring ravioli and eggs to room temperature.
Combine the bread crumbs, Italian seasoning, and salt in a shallow bowl.
Whisk together the eggs and milk in another bowl.
Dip the raviolis in the egg mixture and then dredge in the bread crumb mixture. Repeat this a a second time so they are double-dipped :) Let the raviolis set on a rack while the oil is coming up to temp.
You can either deep-fry or pan-fry the raviolis. You are looking for a temperature of 350-375.
The raviolis take about 3 minutes to cook. Flip them over about halfway through to make sure they are cooking evenly. Once they are a nice golden color – take them out! The raviolis will puff up slightly just as they would if you boiled them.
Serve them warm or at room temperature. A warm marinara makes the perfect dipping sauce for this tasty appetizer.
