Yummy Recipe Wednesday! (Deep Fried Tortellini)

Hello everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Wednesday. The days just keep flying by but the weather is turning super nice so hopefully I’ll have some barbecue posts/pics in the near future. Today I bring you a super simple recipe for some delicious Deep Fried Tortellini, which I had actually never tried before but I’m glad I did. They’re very similar to toasted ravioli but unique in a (good) way that’s really hard to describe. You’ll just have to try them yourself and you’ll see what I mean. You could use ravioli in this recipe instead of the tortellini but I think the tortellini makes a better appetizer and it’s easier to use toothpicks in these for people to pick them up with. I also think that next time I make these I will add a little Parmesan cheese to the breading mixture. Give these a try and if you have any suggestions on changes please feel free to comment below. Have a great week everyone and be sure to get out and enjoy the wonderful weather.

Deep Fried Tortellini

  • 1 (16 oz) pkg Cheese Tortellini
  • 1/4 cup Bread Crumbs
  • 1/4 cup Cornflake Crumbs
  • Salt and Pepper, to taste
  • Dried Parsley, to taste
  • Oil for deep frying
  • 2 Eggs, lightly beaten

1. Cook tortellini according to package directions; rinse them under cool water to allow them to cool slightly.
2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the bread crumbs, cornflake crumbs, salt, pepper, and parsley.
3. Heat the oil in a deep fryer or deep skillet over medium heat.
4. In small batches, dip the tortellini in the lightly beaten egg and then place them in the resealable bag; shake the bag to coat the tortellini and then set them aside on a plate until the oil is hot.
5. In small batches, deep fry the breaded tortellini until golden brown; transfer to a paper towel to drain and then serve hot with tomato sauce, ranch dressing, or hot sauce for dipping.
