How to Make Giant Ravioli...(Tasty)

Postby ken worley on Tue Jan 09, 2007 10:39 pm

You will need...

3# fresh boneless chicken breast,halved.(butterflied)
20 0z. (725 ml.) canned spinach
8 0z. (2oog.) shredded italian style cheese mix(mozzerella-asiago-parmesan-provolone)
package of large (8"square) egg-roll wrappers
can of italian-style bread crumbs.
4 eggs

sprinkle chicken breast halves with liberal amounts of dried minced garlic, salt, and pepper...
Bake uncovered on lightly greased cookie sheet for 25 minutes @ 375 deg. F (190 deg. C), or until center is no longer pink.
Shred into fine pieces and mix with cheese and drained spinach.
Add half a teaspoon of garlic powder, half a teaspoon of basil, half a teaspoon salt, and 1 quarter cup. (95 ml.) fresh grated parmesan cheese.Set aside.

Beat eggs in large shallow pie plate, adding about three teaspoons warm water for thinner consistency.

Coat table or countertop with flour, and lie out eight egg-roll wrappers.

With fingertips, spread thin layer of egg around edge of egg-roll wrapper, in a picture-frame manner, about 3/4 inch (2cm.) wide.

Using a spoon, place 3/4 cup (285 ml) of chicken-spinach-cheese mixture on center of egg-roll wrapper.

Place a second egg-roll wrapper from package on top the lower wrapper, and seal the edges of the wrappers together, by mashing them together, using the egg-picture-frame-border like glue.
Flatten the filled ravioli to about 1.5 cm. thick.
Repeat process with other seven raviolis.

Now dip each ravioli carefully in the remaing egg mixture, turning over once to coat both sides.
Next dip wet ravioli into dish of bread crumbs, coating both sides, and place them on a plate.
(you can stack them.)
Refrigerate for one hour.

When it is time to eat, heat some cooking oil in a large shallow pan to 350 deg. F (175 deg. C) the oil should be just deep enough to cover one ravioli.
Submerge each giant ravioli in hot oil, cooking for about 6-7 minutes, turning once, or until both sides are golden-brown and crunchy...
Serve with a dish of your favoritemarinara sauce on the side for dipping..
Makes eight giant 8"x8" (20 cm x 20 cm) ravioli.

For a delicious side dish, steam 1 lb. (400g) each of broccoli florets, sliced yellow squash, and baby carrots until tender, and toss together in large glass baking dish. Spread over with pint (500 ml) jar of chopped pickled pepperoncinis (with half of the juice discarded.)
Drizzle with 1/4 cup (90 ml.) olive oil , and sprinkle with 8 OZ. (200g)shredded italian cheese mixture. (see above) Add some salt and basil to taste.
Bake @ 375 F (190 C), until cheese bubbles and begins to turn rust-colored at edges...mmmmm...

This recipe as described will serve eight people (four if you're like me....)

You are quite welcome, I am sure.

You now have me thinking of different succulent fillings for these behemoth crispy-good-tasty-ravs.

(I originally used chicken for texture/heartiness, after giving up red meat.)

But there could be all-cheese versions, or turkey-chorizo, or sun-dried tomato-and mozzerella-red-pepper-garlic, or...

I gave up alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs....Food is all that I have left...(fornication being on a stubborn theoretical tack)

These are by far, the most complicated thing I make, though....Too much trouble to make 'em often, but worth it.

Egg Roll wrapper.

Postby black bart on Thu Oct 11, 2007 11:17 am

I am eager to try this delacassy but I have a question, what is an egg-roll wrapper and are they available in europe? I should look it up on google I suppose.

They are pasta product (made of wheat flour, egg? and water),rolled very thin, and cut in squares, and are found packaged in either 4, 6, or 8 inch squares.

They are also called "egg-roll skins" and are what forms the outer wrap of an egg roll(like you get at chinese restaurants).

I usually have to find an asian-specialty supermarket to get them here in america, as most of the typical chain supermarkets don't stock them.

Now that I am looking online, I see that I was probably mistaken in the OP...I think I always use 6" square wrappers...they might not even make 8 inch ones. :D

Spring Rolls

Postby black bart on Fri Oct 12, 2007 6:33 am

Ah Ha...So they are the stuff the Chinese make Spring Rolls from. Fortunately there are plenty of Oriental Food Stores in London so I should be able to get hold of some.
