Homemade Fried Ravioli

Have you ever had fried ravioli? I must admit a little mom and I LOVE the fried raviloi at Olive Garden :) You must try it before you judge! A fried ravioli appetizer and an italian margarita, is there really anything better? Seriously, go try it tonight and report back.

I tried to make fried ravioli at home a couple weeks back. I will is not near as good as Olive Garden's but it was delicious and I was proud. Oh, and it's a Pioneer Woman recipe, so you really can't go wrong! Below is the best recipe I have found so far, have y'all found a good fried ravioli recipe? Please do share!


4 cups Vegetable Oil 
6 whole Eggs 
1/2 cup Half-and-half 
2 cups All-purpose Flour 
2 cups Seasoned Breadcrumbs 
24 whole Frozen Ravioli (I recommend the meat ravioli!)
2 cups Jarred Marinara Sauce, Heated 
1/4 cup Shredded Parmesan Cheese 
1 Tablespoon Minced Fresh Parsley


Heat the oil in a medium pot over medium-high heat until it reaches 400 degrees.
Whisk together the eggs and half-and-half in a dish. Place the flour in a separate dish. Pour the breadcrumbs into a third dish.

Grab the ravioli right out of the freezer. One at a time, drop the ravioli into the egg mixture, then dredge them in flour, then dunk them once again in the egg mixture, then coat them in the breadcrumbs. Set them aside on a plate as you go.

3 or 4 at a time, drop the breaded ravioli into the oil and fry them for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes, until the surface is golden brown and the filling is hot. They brown quickly, so watch them the whole time!
Remove them to a paper towel and repeat with the rest of the ravioli. Transfer them to a serving platter, sprinkle on the Parmesan and parsley, and serve with the marinara sauce.
