Crispy Tortellini Bites

Last night I made these delicious tortellini bites, and although I wasn’t planning on sharing the recipe, they turned out so amazing that I just could not resist.IMG_2330

What you’ll need

1 package tortellini (not frozen)
2 cups of canola oil
4 eggs
2 cups of flour
2 cups of Italian bread crumbs
1 cup shredded parmesan cheese
Marinara sauce for dipping ( I used about half a jar)

The Prep

  1. Boil tortellini according to the package, drain when finished
  2. While the tortellini is cooking mix ¾ of a cup of parmesan cheese in with the Italian bread crumbs in a large bowl.
  3. Whisk Eggs in a different bowl and set aside.
  4. Place flour in yet another bowl and set aside.
  5. In medium size frying pan heat oil on medium heat.

The Main Event

  1. Once the tortellini is drained, dredge them in the flour first, followed by the eggs and lastly the bread crumb/ parmesan cheese mix.
  2. Place the tortellini in a single layer in frying pan.
  3. Cook tortellini until they are golden brown (about 2-3 minuets on each side)
  4. Remove from heat and place on paper towel to catch excess oil.
  5. Sprinkle with remaining parmesan cheese.
  6. Heat up your marinara sauce (I just popped it in the microwave.)

Serve right away, they are perfect as an appetizer for a dinner party, or even as your meal for a simple dinner at home.
