Toasted Ravioli

Toasted Ravioli

4 to 8 cups canola oil (as required by fryer)
1 egg, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup Progresso Italian style bread crumbs
12 pre-made beef raviolis
1 tablespoon grated parmesan cheese

On the side
1/2 cup marinara sauce, warmed

1. Preheat the oil in your deep fryer to 325 degrees.
2. Combine the beaten egg with the milk in shallow bowl. Pour the bread crumbs into another shallow bowl.
3. Bread the ravioli by dipping each one in the milk and egg, then into the bread crumbs. Arrange the breaded ravioli on a plate and let them sit for 5 minutes so that the breading sticks like a champ.
4. When the raviolis have rested, drop a handful into the oil. Depending on the size of your fryer, you may want to fry the raviolis in batches so they aren't too crowded. Fry the breaded raviolis for 1 to 2 minutes or until they're golden brown. Remove them to a draining rack or a paper-towel lined plate.
5. When all the raviolis are cooked, Arrange them on a serving plate and sprinkle 1 tablespoon of grated parmesan cheese over the top. Serve the dish with a small bowl of warmed marinara sauce on the side for dipping.
