Baked Toasted Ravioli

It was just a couple of weeks ago that I was wishing for fall weather. And now it is really feeling like fall. I am conflicted because I am ready to move on to boots and sweaters but I am not ready to give up my weekends by the pool. We had a bonfire by our house this past weekend and the weather was perfect. I even had to break out some blankets. Along with fall weather comes football season. And you know what that means, right? Appetizers. Also known as, lay on the couch every Sunday and eat snacks season. It is not just a coincidence that lay on the couch and eat snacks season coincides with bulky sweater and sweat pants season.

In preparation for snack season we have been trying some new dips and appetizers and also revisiting some old favorites. One of our favorites snacks is toasted ravioli. My Mom makes the best toasted ravioli but she fries them. If I am going to lay around on the couch every Sunday eating snacks then I cannot eat so much fried food. Instead, we decided to bake them. It was an excellent choice. They were not oily. They were perfectly crispy and delicious. And baking them was much less messy than pan frying. So oil spatter staining my clothes is always a plus. If you look forward to snack season as much as I do, then you will definitely want to try BAKED toasted ravioli.

Here is what you’ll need minus the oil. We didn’t end up using it.

Dunk the ravioli in the egg, then breadcrumbs

Lay them on a roasting rack and bake for 15 minutes

Since they are baked not fried, I can eat twice as many, right? Right?
