This recipe for Oven Toasted Breaded Ravioli makes an impressive appetizer or dinner!
Can I let you in on a secret?? Years ago (although probably not enough years ago to make this any less embarrassing) I was an adult woman who enjoyed the Twilight books.
I know there are many of us out there, but still!! I was a girl who normally read classics and historical fiction! This was so far out of my norm.
In fact, I resisted for quite awhile! I had some close girlfriends who kept trying to pressure me into reading them. I seriously had no interest. I’ve never been into paranormal stories, and this series just held no appeal to me!
Finally, during one Christmas break, I cracked. I borrowed the first book from a friend and then pretty much ignored my children for the rest of the break. Oh my gosh, it was absurd.
Within months, I was having a Twilight party with these same friends where we served sausage balls (Edward’s eyes- what???), vampire punch and even toasted ravioli (what Bella ate on their first date).
It was like this weird 4 months where I lived as a different person. I mean, I’m always down for a good, themed party… but Twilight?! I even shushed my friends if they talked through the movie!
Which is not quite as embarrassing as the Team Edward track suit I was wearing. I swear to you, different person.
But I still do enjoy some Oven Toasted Breaded Ravioli! This is a great dish that you can make as an appetizer or even as a main dish. We’ve had it both ways, and always enjoy it!
- 1 Pack ravioli (refrigerated)
- 2 Eggs
- 2 Tbsps milk
- 1 Cup Italian bread crumbs
- Cooking spray
- 2 Tbsps milk
- Pinch of salt
- Pinch of pepper
- Set oven to 375 degrees.
- Whisk together eggs and milk until fully blended.
- Mix together bread crumbs, pepper, and salt in a separate bowl.
- Dip ravioli into egg mixture and then coat in the bread crumb mixture (repeat this process for extra texture). Place ravioli on a baking sheet and spray with cooking spray.
- Bake for 12-15minutes or until golden brown.
- Serve and enjoy with marinara sauce.
- You can also add Parmesan cheese to the breadcrumb mixture, or sprinkle it on top of the toasted ravioli.
And you’ll be happy to know I have since moved on and am back to reading age-appropriate books. My weird mid-30’s teenage angst book phase has passed and I don’t think I lost the respect of too many people in the process.
Although, now that I’m broadcasting it to the word, that might change…
