There’s just something about this time of the year that makes me want to create all kinds of finger foods!  Maybe I’m subconsciously rebelling against the formality of the typically HUGE Holiday Dinner..lol!  Anyway, I think one of the best parts about the Holidays are all the ‘Coffee Table’ pop-in-your-mouth snacks that are always invited!

I made a batch HUGE PILE of these super simple yet amazingly delicious, crispy Tortellini Poppers and there was literally not ONE  left after 15 minutes! G.O.N.E~~  ALL of them..haha!

People (not my Mom) who typically have manners, courtesy and self-control turned into ravenous animals in the middle of a feeding frenzy…haha!  ~Not you Mom, NOT you!!  😉   …not my Mom!

What you’ll need:

1 lb. Tortellini..I used THIS ONE—>  See below

tortellini

1 cup Italian Bread Crumbs

1/2 cup Grated Parmesan

1/2 cup Panko Bread Crumbs

1 cup Milk

1 Egg

Oil for frying..I used Canola

Marinara for dipping

Some shaved Parmesan for topping…optional~~  I used Frigo Shaved Parmesan

 

Directions:

In a large bowl add the Egg, Milk S&P…

Whisk it…

In another large bowl add the Bread Crumbs, Panko, Grated Parmesan..combine very well…

Add a large scoop of the Tortellini into the Egg mixture…

And then into the Bread Crumb mixture…

Fry them up in batches until they’re evenly golden, and slightly puffy…

Let them cool…

Top them with some of the Shaved Parm~~  Or regular Grated Parm will work too…

Watch everyone quickly gather around…

 

Plate them up with some warm Marinara for dipping…

 

And DIP!  ~Enjoy! 🙂
