Fried Raviloi

One of these days I am going to go to New York and more specifically visit Eataly.

Easy and delicious fried cheese ravioli

But until then I will settle for the Little Eataly Food Truck on First Friday. I got the Tortellini Salad which made me realize I don’t even have a pasta salad recipe on the blog. I also had the Ravi Fritti (Fried Ravioli) with a Vodka Dipping Sauce.

Both were really good so as in true food blogger fashion I had to make my own. These Fried Ravioli would be perfect for an entree as well as an appetizer or snack while watching a big game or something!

Perfectly crisp fried ravioli

Fried Raviloi
  • Package of cheese ravioli (or filling of your choice)
  • 2 Eggs
  • ¼ cup Whole Milk
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • ⅔ cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning
  • Oil for frying (measurement will depend on the size of pan & if you have to keep adding more for each batch)
  • Marinara or Vodka Sauce for dipping
  1. Cook ravioli according to package directions. Drain and let cool to room temperature.
  2. Coat frying pan in oil. Heat oil over medium heat.
  3. Beat eggs and milk in one shallow dish. In another shallow dish toss together breadcrumbs, cheese, and Italian seasoning. Dredge each ravioli in egg mixture first then breadcrumb mixture.
  4. When oil is hot enough, place a batch of ravioli in the pan. Don't overcrowd. Fry ravioli for 2-3 minutes on each side, until deep golden brown.
  5. Place on baking sheet lined with paper towels to let excess moisture drain out. Repeat until all ravioli are fried.
  6. Serve with ravioli with favorite dipping sauce.
