Ingredients

  • Oil, for frying
  • 3  Tablespoons  balsamic glaze
  • 1/2  Cup  milk
  • leaves basil, thinly sliced
  • 2  Cups  Italian breadcrumbs
  • 9  Ounces  prepared fresh cheese ravioli (not dried)*
  • 6  Ounces  small mozzarella slices
  • 5  Ounces  cherry tomatoes, sliced
  • eggs

Directions

Place about 5 inches of oil in a pot over medium-high heat. Attach a deep-fry thermometer and adjust so the heat maintains between 325 and 350 degrees.

In a small bowl, beat together the eggs and milk. In a separate bowl, add the Italian breadcrumbs.

Working in batches, dip the raviolis in the milk mixture and then dredge in the breadcrumbs. Fry until golden brown on both sides, about 1-2 minutes per side. Use a metal slotted spoon to remove from oil, and allow to drain on a stack of paper towels.

Place half of the raviolis on a serving platter. Top with a slice of mozzarella, and then a slice of tomato, some basil, and a drizzle of balsamic glaze. Top with remaining raviolis and secure the stack with a toothpick.
