First, I mixed the egg and milk in a bowl. I had plenty with the one egg since I was planning on doing a double breading and it turned out that we only double breaded a few because we were hungry!!
Then, I put the breadcrumbs in a bowl and added basil and Parmesan cheese. I used a mix of homemade breadcrumbs made from chips and some Panko breadcrumbs.
I opened the package of raviolis and put some of them into the egg mixture.
I made sure that the raviolis were covered in the egg mixture and then placed them in the breading mixture to coat.
When they were coated, we put them on a plate to rest until all of the raviolis were done.
Then, my mom fried them while I was getting the rest of dinner on the table and the side of dipping sauce. We left them on a paper towel to get some of the grease off.
Final result was a tasty side dish for dinner that was unexpected and different.
The inside wasn't as juicy as I wanted but I think that is based on the raviolis that I used and not the process of cooking them. I haven't had them as a cooked pasta for awhile so I don't really remember what they tasted like boiled and in spaghetti sauce. Of course, they aren't mozzarella sticks so I am not sure exactly what I was looking for but they were tasty.
I would make them again but I think that I would fry them at a lower temperature. My mom was in charge of frying so it was not the best time for me to making helpful hints like turn down the heat because I would have gotten an answer like, "then do it yourself". It was great to get help in the kitchen but it takes effort with both my mom and I leaving in a good mood. Do you ever cook with your mom?? Does it go better then it does with my mom? It is best to keep your opinions to yourself sometimes and just enjoy the dinner!
Toasted RaviolisPackage of raviolis (I used cheese)
Parmesan Cheese (optional)
Pizza or Spaghetti sauce for dipping
Mix egg and milk in one bowl.
Mix breadcrumbs, Parmesan Cheese and basil in another bowl.
Put defrosted or refrigerated raviolis into egg mixture to coat. Then, put in breadcrumb mixture to coat. Let sit on a plate while completing all of the raviolis.
If you would like to do a second coat of breadcrumbs, coat in egg mixture and then breadcrumbs again. It makes a thicker coat but not necessary.
Put in hot oil with enough room that they don't touch. Flip ravioli to cook evenly. Remove and drain on paper towel before serving with side of pizza or spaghetti sauce.
