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!
Oven Toasted Breaded Ravioli
- 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…
