I Chronicles 29:11 "Thine, O LORD, is the greatness, and the power, and the glory, and the victory, and the majesty:for all that is in the heaven and in the earth is thine; thine is the kingdom, O LORD, and thou art exalted as head above all."

Foodie Friday

It's a new feature here at JulieMom, Foodie Friday. Every Friday I will bring you pictures and recipes of something we've dared to try during the week. I think you'll be pleased with this week's entries, and may even want to try them for yourself!

Today's Recipes: Toasted Ravioli and Amish Fry Pies

We'll start with the toasted ravioli, because we all know we should have something solid before eating five or six fruit-filled pies. Right? Here we go.

Toasted Ravioli

(1)2 eggs (2)Splash milk (3)Salt & Pepper (4)1&1/2C Italian bread crumbs (5)1/2C
Parmesan Cheese (6)Olive Oil for frying (7)1&1/2t dried parsley (8)Ravioli-frozen or fresh

1. Beat eggs with milk. Season with salt and pepper.
2. Combine bread crumbs with cheese and parsley.
3. If using frozen ravioli, boil according to package directions, then drain on
cooling rack over a baking sheet or paper towels.

4. Heat few Tablespoons of oil over medium heat in large skillet.
5. Coat ravioli in egg, then crumb mixture.

6. Cook ravioli in oil until deep golden brown.

7. Serve hot with your favorite sauce.

    Hee hee heee and they're both so heartsmart, too! :)

    They both look delicious. My poor mother tried my whole childhood to get fried pies "exactly right" and failed each time (by her own standards, I mean, which are way too high). We enjoyed all the experimentation though! YUM.

    Great idea, Foodie Friday!

    Um, I'm sensing a pattern here-- coat something with a fatty food item and fry it. Then put more sauce on top.....

    MMMMMMMMM! Since I started Weight Watchers a month ago, my enjoyment of these recipes will be strictly through your blog- but WOW, they look good. I actually COULD eat them, but then I wouldn't be able to eat anything else the rest of the day...lemme' think about it....

    You've always been a great cook (except for the unfortunate "Chocolate Cake Incident of 2007"), so I'm sure they both turned out great. Did the family like them? How about the Prince? I didn't see any feta cheese in the recipe- will he accept parmesan instead? LOL.

    Love ya--

    P.S. I miss our "communal" cooking times....

    Wait a minute....is Wendy unaware of your attempt to make Black Forest cake in...oh, I forget the year, but when you lived in Spencerport??? Yeah, that was pretty lopsided, but we had a lot of fun shoving our faces in it!!! I might actually try these recipes...you know how us "southerners" love those fried foods!!
