Yummy Recipe Thursday! (Toasted Tortellini Bites)

Hello everyone and welcome to another Yummy Recipe Thursday! I apologize for the delay in getting this posted this week but after you try these delicious Toasted Tortellini Bites you won’t even care anymore. If you’re a fan of Toasted Ravioli, like I am, then you’re definitely going to want to give these a try. There’s so much flavor packed into these little bite-sized tortellini that you just might think you’re in paradise after eating them. These are perfect for dipping in your favorite marinara or alfredo sauce but if you really want to elevate the flavor, I recommend dipping them in the sauce from the Bang Bang Chicken recipe I posted back in February. These are definitely perfect as an appetizer if you’re hosting some quests but they also work great as a main course with a vegetable or salad on the side. Go ahead and give these a try for yourself and make sure you stock up on all of the ingredients because you’ll definitely be making these again. As always, feel free to leave comments below and be sure to follow @RecipeBlogger on Twitter if you aren’t already so you don’t miss any new posts.

Toasted Tortellini Bites

  • 1 (9 oz) pkg Three Cheese Tortellini, refrigerated
  • 1/2 cup All-Purpose Flour
  • 2 large Eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup Panko Breadcrumbs
  • 1/4 cup Freshly Grated Parmesan
  • 1/2 cup Vegetable Oil

1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the tortellini according to the package instructions; drain well.
2. While the tortellini is cooking prepare three separate shallow plates or pie pans with the flour in the first dish, the beaten eggs in the second dish, and the Panko breadcrumbs combined with the parmesan in the third dish.
3. Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium high heat.
4. Working in batches, dredge the cooked tortellini in the flour, then dip them into the eggs, and finally dredge them in the breadcrumb/parmesan mixture, pressing to coat.
5. Add the tortellini to the hot oil in the skillet, about a dozen at a time, and cook them until they are evenly golden and crispy, about 1-2 minutes; transfer them to a paper towel-lined plate to drain any excess grease.
6. Serve immediately with marinara sauce, or other sauce of your choosing, and garnish with additional Parmesan, if desired.
