What is toasted ravioli?
Toasted ravioli is simply ravioli that has been breaded and fried, or toasted, instead of boiled.
You end up with a crispy little finger food that is perfect for dipping and great as an appetizer or snack.
They remind me of little turnovers, except you don’t have to stand in the kitchen all day filling and pinching tiny squares of dough.
Ravioli comes in so many flavours that you can make these vegetarian if you like, or go with a beef or chicken filling. Serve them along side a nice dipping sauce and you have a pretty easy appetizer for your next gathering or game night.
Why this recipe works
Simple ingredients – You don’t need anything fancy. Just a package of ravioli, a couple of eggs, breadcrumbs and seasoning.
Easy – There are only a few easy steps to prepare the ravioli for the air fryer.
Quick – These crispy ravioli bites cook in less than 10 minutes.
Refrigerated ravioli – Any flavour will do so choose your favourite.
Eggs – Make the breading stick to the ravioli.
Breadcrumbs – I use a combination of Panko and fine breadcrumbs for the best combination of coating and crunch. But you can use just one or the other if you prefer.
Grated parmesan – This is the parmesan that comes pre-grated and usually sold in a shaker container. You can grate your own if you prefer, just make sure it’s super fine.
Seasonings – I use a combination of individual seasonings, but you could use your favourite blend as well.
Prep the ingredients
One – Mix the ingredients for the egg wash in a small bowl.
Two – Mix the breadcrumbs, parmesan and seasonings in a bowl or plate.
Bread the ravioli
Three – Dip the ravioli in the egg wash and allow the excess to drip off.
Four – Dip the egg washed ravioli in the breadcrumb mixture and toss to make sure it’s fully coated.
Five – Place the breaded ravioli in the air fryer basket in an even layer. A bit of overlap is ok, but try not to stack them. Lightly spray with olive oil spray.
Six – Place the basket in the air fryer and cook at 350 degrees for 8 minutes or until the ravioli is crisp and golden.
These toasted ravioli are best served as an appetizer or snack.
They are also good with your favourite ranch dip or roasted garlic dip.
You can bread the ravioli ahead of time and keep them in the refrigerator, but they are best if they are cooked right before serving. You can bread them up to a day before cooking.
No need to boil before breading. The dough will cook in the air fryer.
