Deep Fried Pizza Tortellinis

pizza tortellinis


* Warning: these are very addicting.

Ingredients: 

1 – bag cheese tortellini’s

1 – Cup breadcrumbs ( I used plain)

2 – eggs

1 -Cup Mozzarella cheese

10-15 pepperonis ( diced into small pieces OR you could buy a pack of the mini pepperonis)

Directions:

* I use a deep frying pan to fry these. Make sure your oil is hot enough before you put your tortellini’s in or they will get soggy. I have never used a deep fryer for these but it could be done that way, as well.

Thaw tortellini in the fridge overnight. In a small bowl add eggs and beat. In a second bowl add breadcrumbs. Use a fork to dip the tortellini in the egg, and then into the bread crumbs. Once they are well coated in bread crumbs, carefully place them into the hot oil. Fry until golden brown. Drain them on a plate that has been lined with paper towels. Throw the paper towel away and place the tortellini into a small oven safe bowl. Top the tortellini with cheese and pepperoni and put them in the oven under the broiler. Boil until cheese melts. This doesn’t take long at all so  watch them carefully. Take tortellini out and serve with warmed pizza sauce (  I warm mine in the microwave). Enjoy.
