Fried Ravioli



  • Olive oil, for frying
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 2 cups Italian-style bread crumbs or Panko
  • 1 bag store-bought cheese ravioli (about 24 ravioli)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan
  • 1 jar marinara or spaghetti sauce, heated, for dipping


  1. Pour enough olive oil into a large frying pan to reach a depth of 2 inches.
  2. Heat the oil over medium heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 325 degrees F.
  3. While the oil is heating, put the egg and milk (whisked together) and the bread crumbs in separate shallow bowls.
  4. Working in batches, dip ravioli in egg mixture to coat completely. Allow the excess to drip back into the bowl.
  5. Dredge ravioli in the bread crumbs.
  6. Place the ravioli on a baking sheet, and continue with the remaining ravioli.
  7. When the oil is hot, fry the ravioli in batches, turning occasionally, until golden brown, about 3 minutes.
  8. Using a slotted spoon, transfer the fried ravioli to paper towels to drain.
  9. Sprinkle the fried ravioli with Parmesan and serve with a bowl of warmed marinara sauce for dipping.

Air Fryer Instructions: Skip heating the oil. Prepare ravioli as above, and place in a single layer in your air-fryer. Cook at 400 ° for 10 minutes. Halfway through, open the air-fryer and flip each Ravioli. Continue cooking.
