Toasted Ravioli

Today I made a hearty meal that will satisfy even the pickiest of eaters. After a long week of work and school, we ate toasted ravioli for dinner, along with broccoli and a no-bake frozen blueberry pie.

On a small side note, my roommate and I made the decision to adopt a tiny kitty from the local Humane Society this week. We have been considering adopting for several months now, and we found our perfect match. Her name is Juliet, and she is a calm and collected 1 year old. Although she is very petite, she has made a huge impact on our home already. Here is a picture of her lounging around (she already owns the place).

Anyway, I'll get back to the cooking! I just had to brag about how adorable she is!

I usually don't delve into fried food, but I absolutely love this recipe! Its very easy if you have someone to help you batter the ravioli. It only takes a few minutes to make, and I usually prepare a vegetable on the side to balance the meal. Here's how it's done:

You will need:
I package frozen jumbo ravioli (I like the cheese ravioli)
    1/2 cup milk
    Enough breadcrumbs to cover a paper plate (I use the italian seasoned kind)
    Canola or vegetable oil

Before you start battering, pour oil in a large frying pan until it is about 3/4 inch deep.

Battering them up:
To begin, take the ravioli out of the freezer (no need to thaw ahead of time). Pour milk onto a paper plate or into a bowl. Place the ravioli into the milk, covering both sides. Then, roll the ravioli in the breadcrumbs.

My boyfriend is helping me today :]

Once the oil is hot (place one ravioli in it, it should sizzle after a few seconds) you can load up your skillet.

Cook the ravioli for about 5 minutes per side, or until both sides are a dark golden brown. Remove them from the skillet and place them on paper towels until they are served. Look at these beauties!

We always plow through a whole bag of these things! The leftovers are especially good after they have been in the fridge for a while. We usually take them out a few hours after dinner and eat them cold!

I know you and your family will love this recipe! Thank you for stopping by!
