1 16 oz. package cheese ravioli, fresh or frozen (thawed)
2 large eggs, beaten
1 cup milk
1 cup Italian bread crumbs
1 cup Panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Prepare a platter with paper towels to absorb oil from the ravioli after frying.
In a deep fryer or a saucepan, heat 2-3 inches of oil to 325° F.
In a small bowl, whisk eggs and milk together.
In a separate bowl, mix breadcrumbs.
Coat ravioli thoroughly in egg mixture and allow excess to drip off. Then, dredge in the breadcrumbs and completely cover.
