College Playoff Tournament

Deep Fried Slam Dunking

While you watch your top teams hold on to their dreams of winning it all, be sure to borrow a few key moves for an appetizer worth the effort. Southern Fried Ravioli dipped in a blend of cornmeal mix & flour offers true grit with the gracious comfort we look for in a batch of our favorite fried chicken recipe. The fresh breadcrumbs make the coating extra crisp without leaving them dry which can be the case with many other similar recipes. The process of double dipping will help the crumbs adhere better to the ravioli as well. Fry up to 2 days ahead of time & reheat in a 350 degree oven 10 to 12 minutes to really get your make-it-ahead game on. Place on a stack of paper towels & blot any oil that releases during warming. With these crunchy crowd-pleasers, entertaining courtside is sure to be a real winner.

makes 6 servings


When frying with wet batters, you may notice foamy bubbles which are caused by evaporation after the food is first added to the oil. They will subside & once they do the browning process will begin.

4 eggs
1/2 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup ap flour
1/2 cup self-rising cornmeal mix
1 1/2 cups fresh breadcrumbs
1/2 {25-oz} bag frozen ravioli, about 24 pieces
Vegetable oil
1 1/2 cups marinara sauce
1 Tbsp chopped fresh basil
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
Freshly Grated Parmesan

Whisk together the eggs & the buttermilk in a medium bowl.
Combine the flour & the cornmeal in a separate medium bowl.
Place the breadcrumbs in a small bowl.

Dip the ravioli in the buttermilk mixture, then in the cornmeal mixture.
Dip the ravioli back into the buttermilk mixture & press both sides in breadcrumbs.
Place the coated pasta on a sheet pan.

Pour the oil to a depth of 1 1/2-inches in a Dutch oven.
Attach a candy thermometer to the side & heat the oil to 360 degrees.

Fry 5 to 6 ravioli into the oil & cook 2 minutes.
Turn the pieces & cook 2 minutes longer or until golden brown.
Drain on a wire rack over paper towels.
Repeat with the remaining ravioli.

Stir together the marinara, the basil & crushed red pepper.
Top the ravioli with the cheese & serve with the marinara sauce.

And One …

Alley-Oop the apps in a variety of saucy condiments. Try Ranch-style or blue cheese dressing for equally tasty results.

Organize a dredging station to make frying a cinch.
Line up the items in the order in which they will be used.
I generally work from the right side of the hot grease to the left,
the final item in my lineup being the wire rack to drain food.

Have several pairs of tongs to use for different tasks.
A spider is a great tool for retrieving the ravioli from the grease. 
Start a fresh batch of dredging ingredients to double the recipe for the best results.
