I’m not sure who actually created the first toasted ravioli, but I’d sure like to thank them. This tasty treat might hail from St. Louis, and in particular, The Hill area, but now savvy diners can find these tasty morsels on Italian restaurant menus all around the country.
Toasted is a bit of a misnomer; toasted ravioli are, in fact, deep fried. Yup, breaded and fried, and we all know everything is better fried, right? Well, cheesy, delicious ravioli are no exception. The fact that they’re simple to make is even better! Simply:
Dredge frozen cheese ravioli in flour, then in an egg wash and then in Italian breadcrumbs, or Panko if you prefer.
Then cook them until golden brown in oil heated to about 350 F. Serve them with delish marinara sauce for dipping and a sprinkle of salt and grated cheese on top! Yum!
