While visiting a friend who had just moved to St. Louis, Missouri, I tried these toasted ravioli at almost every restaurant! When I got home, I had to try to replicate them, and this recipe comes pretty close. —Cristina Carrera, Kenosha, Wisconsin

  • 1 cup seasoned bread crumbs
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dried basil
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 package (9 ounces) frozen beef ravioli, thawed
  • Oil for deep-fat frying
  • Fresh minced basil and additional shredded Parmesan cheese, optional
  • 1 cup marinara sauce


  1. In a shallow bowl, mix bread crumbs, Parmesan cheese and basil. Place flour and eggs in separate shallow bowls. Dip ravioli in flour to coat both sides; shake off excess. Dip in egg, then in crumb mixture, patting to help coating adhere.
  2. In a deep cast-iron or electric skillet, heat 1/2 in. of oil to 375°. Fry ravioli, a few at a time, until golden brown, 1-2 minutes on each side. Drain on paper towels. If desired, immediately sprinkle with basil and cheese. Serve warm with marinara sauce.

    I haven't tried this yet, but am wondering why it wouldn't work in an air fryer? That would be so much easier.

    Why is it called “Toasted” when it’s actually deep fried?

    This recipe is so easy and the outcome delicious. I used it for a quick lunch during "stay at home" time period. I paired it with a Caesar salad and served it with my own sauce that was in the fridge, YUM! Was a hit with my wife.
