air fryer ravioli

Among the many snack recipes we’ve made in the air fryer, these crispy raviolis are one of our favorites. All you need is a bag of frozen ravioli, eggs, breadcrumbs and spices. The only work you have to do is to dip the ravioli into the beaten eggs and then in the breadcrumb mixture, and put them in the air fryer basket.

If you have sudden guests pop by, you can make a quick batch of crispy ravioli for everyone to snack on. They’re very similar to these pasta chips that are also easy and fun.

Why You’ll Love It

  • It’s unique: This is one of our favorite air fryer snacks because air fried ravioli is not something you see every day!
  • Crunchy and satisfying: The crunch of the toasted ravioli is really tasty. The breading helps to get it super crisp.
  • Fast and convenient: Air fryer ravioli is faster than if you bake in the oven; it just takes a few minutes.

What Ingredients You’ll Need

Here is everything you need to make air fryer crispy ravioli:

  • Ravioli: Frozen ravioli is easy to find. You can get any brand you like. You can also make them at home and freeze them. They do need to be frozen, so be sure to plan ahead if buying fresh.
  • Eggs: Whisk the eggs in a bowl for dipping, or use a boxed liquid egg.
  • Bread crumbs: use dry breadcrumbs for this recipe. They can be plain or seasoned to your liking.
  • Shredded parmesan: shredded parmesan adds a cheesy and nutty flavour to this recipe. It also makes a crispier exterior, but it’s optional.
  • Garlic powder and/or Italian seasoning: This blend of herbs and spices add tons of flavour to this recipe.
  • Salt
  • Spray oil: you can either use spray oil or brush olive oil.
  • Dipping sauce: Marinara or ranch dressing go well with these ravioli for dipping, but you can also get creative..

Helpful Tips

  • Don’t skip the egg. You need it to help the breadcrumbs adhere to the ravioli.
  • You can use premade Italian breadcrumbs. They already have dried herbs added to them. Or you can make your own.
  • For a little bit of heat, add cayenne pepper or red chili flakes to the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Don’t forget to flip the ravioli halfway through the cook.
  • You don’t need to thaw the frozen ravioli before air frying them. In fact, it’s best to use frozen ravioli so they don’t overcook on the inside while getting crispy outside.

How to Make Air Fryer Crispy Ravioli

Step 1: Prepare the basket (if necessary)

If your non-stick surface is getting a little worn down, spray the air fryer basket with oil or line it with a piece of parchment paper to prevent sticking.

Step 2: Make a breading station

Crack the eggs into a shallow bowl and whisk them. Add the bread crumbs, parmesan and spices to another shallow bowl or plate. This will make your breading station.

Dip the frozen ravioli in the egg mixture and then the breadcrumb mixture. Place them in the air fryer basket, leaving room between each so they aren’t overlapping. You’ll have to work in batches if you’re making more than can fit in one layer. Spray the breaded ravioli lightly with cooking spray (I use olive oil in a spray bottle).

Step 3: Air fry

Cook at 400°F (200°C) for 8 minutes, flipping halfway through the cooking time. I use tongs to flip them gently so the breadcrumbs don’t come off in the flip. When they’re done, you can transfer them to a serving plate to serve right away. They’re way better when eaten hot.

What to Serve Them With

There are so many dipping sauces you can serve with these air fryer crispy ravioli. I love serving it with marinara sauce. That’s everyone’s favorite. But here are a few more choices:

  • Marinara sauce
  • Ranch dressing
  • Onion dip
  • Parmesan and melted butter
  • Sriracha mayo

Alternatives

The best way to mix up this recipe and try something new is to change out the seasonings you use or by purchasing different types of ravioli. You can go vegetarian or meat-filled. You can also buy a different size or shape of ravioli. Try these different fillings for your ravioli:

  • Cheese and spinach
  • Butternut squash
  • Wild mushroom
  • Lobster
  • Three cheese
  • Meat-filled

Seasonings also play a big role in the flavor of these ravioli. If using a plain cheese ravioli, it’s good to add some spices, like the garlic powder and Italian seasoning in the original recipe.

Instead, you could try:

  • Pesto sauce
  • Japanese 7 Spice
  • Zaatar
  • Mesquite

How to Store & Reheat

You can store the leftover air fryer crispy ravioli. Once they are cool down, store the leftover in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. The longer you leave them in the refrigerator, the more they will turn soggy, though.

The best way to store the leftover air fryer crispy ravioli is not by refrigerating them but by freezing them. Once they are cool enough, place them in a zip-lock plastic bag and freeze. They will last for up to 3 months.

You can reheat them by air frying them at 400°F (200°C) for 5 minutes or until they turn crispy again.

    Intend to try Air Fryer Crispy Ravioli recipe. However I do have a question/comment about recipe. In the HOW TO MAKE AIR FRYER CRISPY RAVIOLI section, the 3rd paragraph last sentence states “Spray them lightly with oil.” There is no mention of that in the recipe.
