I love food that is breaded and fried. It’s one of my major downfalls when it comes to sticking to a healthy diet. Anything from mozzarella sticks to fried pickles and I’m so here for it. One thing I’ve found since picking up an air fryer though is that many of these foods are just as good without all of that extra oil. My easy air fryer toasted ravioli are a perfect example of that. In fact, I think they are way BETTER out of the air fryer.
This recipe is an absolute hit with kids and a great choice for lunch box meal prep containers. I often pair my air fryer toasted ravioli with fresh cucumber slices or mozzarella cheese. They make a great on the go lunch for kids and adults.Jump to Recipe
How to Make Easy Air Fryer Toasted Ravioli
There are many ways that you can make this recipe your own. One of the easiest ways is choosing a frozen ravioli ( or making your own ) that works best for your family. I started using a 5 cheese traditional ravioli but recently made the switch to a smaller, rounder ravioli with cheese and spinach. A homemade pumpkin ravioli recipe would be a great way to make this a seasonal treat!
1 pkg frozen cheese ravioli
1 medium egg
1 C breadcrumbs
1 C parmesan cheese
1 tsp Italian seasoning blend
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp onion powder
Use a whisk to lightly beat the egg in a small dish and then set aside.
Combine the breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, and Italian seasoning blend in a shallow dish.
Dip one of the frozen ravioli into the egg mixture and then toss in breadcrumb mixture to cover completely. ( Sometimes it’s helpful to use one hand for the egg wash and another hand for the breading. )
Place the ravioli in a single layer in the basket of the air fryer.
Cook for 14 minutes at 350. Use a pair of tongs to flip the ravioli halfway through the cooking time to ensure that they brown evenly.
How to Store Air Fryer Toasted Ravioli
This recipe will store fairly well in the refrigerator for about 3 to 4 days. You can also freeze the ravioli again once they have been toasted for up to a month. I highly recommend popping them back into the air fryer for a few minutes to reheat them after storing or freezing. This helps to keep them crispy rather than going soggy on you in the microwave.
