I feel that I have to rate this recipe because one persons bad review has brough the rating down. This is a simple and delicious recipe. It is best if you use unflavoured breadcrumbs.-25 Feb 2006

This was awful!! Made it for a party and I can't say anyone really enjoyed it. If it hadn't been for my husband's homemade spaghetti sauce we served with it, this would have been a huge flop!! Definitely will not make again.-16 Jan 2006

    40 Deep-Fried Recipes To Recreate the Most Delicious State Fair Foods At Home

    Let&rsquos be real&mdashSoutherners don&rsquot go to the state fair, or even the county fair, just to win a stuffed monkey at the ring toss or get seasick on the Tilt-A-Whirl. We go for the iconic fair foods, all gloriously deep-fried and full of flavor, whether sweet (hello, fried Oreos), salty (say no more, fried macaroni and cheese), or something else entirely. Dill pickle chips, green tomatoes, and apple cider doughnuts get the excitement going way more than any amusement ride.

    While you might not always be in the radius to hit the once-a-year state fair&mdashthough, the legendary State Fair of Texas with its annual competition for most bizarre fried foods is a bucket-list item in itself&mdashyou can easily recreate the same dishes at home. We&rsquore stocked with plenty of delicious renditions of all of the deep-fried state fair foods of our childhood, as well as a few special standouts that go beyond the fryer. Think old-school cherry cola slushies, Texas frito pie in the bag, and classic caramel apples.

    Here are 40 deliciously deep-fried and beyond recipes that copy your favorite fair foods right in your kitchen.

    2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
    2 tablespoons white sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/3 cup shortening
    2 eggs
    2 tablespoons dry white wine

    1 1/2 cup ricotta cheese
    1 egg
    1/4 cup white sugar
    1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    4 cups vegetable oil, for frying

    In a large bowl, stir together 2 cups of the flour, sugar and salt. Cut in the shortening until the mixture resembles coarse meal.

    Make a well in the center and pour the eggs and white wine into it. Stir with a fork, gradually bringing the dry mixture into the center until a dough forms.

    Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead in remaining flour until smooth. Cover and let rest for 5 minutes.

    In a small bowl, stir together the ricotta cheese, egg, sugar and vanilla until well blended.

    On a lightly floured surface, roll out the dough to 1/8 inch thickness. Cut out 3 inch circles using a cookie cutter or a glass. Place 1 tablespoon of the ricotta cheese mixture in the center of each circle. Fold edges over into a half-moon shape an press to seal. Raviolis can be frozen at this point and saved for later. It seems to help keep the filling from oozing out while frying.

    In a large heavy skillet, heat oil, one inch deep, to 365 degrees F. Place the ravioli into the hot oil so that they are not crowded. Fry on both sides until golden. Drain on paper towels.

    If you like, dust with confectioners' sugar or drizzle with honey before serving.

    Deep-Fried Chitterlings

    Chitterlings, or chitlins, are a classic Southern recipe consisting of pork intestines that can be cooked or fried. Mild in flavor, their bits are a great canvas to work with because they can take on whatever seasonings and cooking method you're using. Often categorized as soul food, chitterlings can be eaten boiled and served simply over rice, or boiled, breaded, and fried as in our recipe. Deep-fried chitterlings are a decadent dish that is common during the holidays, served alongside hog maws—pork stomach—cornbread, rice, hot sauces, vinegar, collard greens, and fried chicken. Not for the faint of heart!

    The chitterlings need to be cleaned thoroughly and then boiled for two hours before they are breaded and fried, so plan accordingly. The cleaning process is key to an appetizing meal: chitterlings are famous for their unpleasant smell, and because of their origin, they must be adequately clean to avoid contamination in your kitchen or illness. Nowadays, finding clean and pre-cooked chitterlings is a convenient way of bringing this unusual and tasty ingredient to your table.

    Our recipe uses some alliums to boil the chitterlings in before frying, but add to these seasonings any spices or other vegetables that you'd like: bell peppers, carrots, celery stalks, red pepper flakes, parsley, cilantro, or Creole seasoning are great additions.

    Tortellini Reimagined: 9 Outside-the-Box Recipes

    The thing about tortellini is, though we love them treated with Marcella Hazan-style simplicity and tradition, they also dress up in more contemporary ways. Here are 9 recipes that treat cheese tortellini as a pasta shape, ready for baking, tossing into soup, mixing into salad, and coating with tomato sauce.

    1. Tortellini with Spicy Sausage Ragu

    Fresh cheese tortellini seem like such delicate things, and they can be. They can also hold up beautifully in a bolder dish, like this sausage and tomato pasta sauce. Get our Tortellini with Spicy Sausage Ragu recipe.

    2. Vegetable Minestrone with Tortellini

    Like us, you’re probably used to the pasta presence in minestrone being limited to a handful of orzo or macaroni. Add cheese tortellini, though, and minestrone becomes a substantial meal, rib-sticking and delicious. Get our Vegetable Minestrone with Tortellini recipe.

    3. Baked Tortellini with Chard, Mushrooms, and Mozzarella

    Tortellini doesn’t have to be ravioli’s delicate cousin. You can toss it with tomato sauce, mix in sautéed Swiss chard and mushroom, add cheese and bake. What you get is a fantastic, one-dish lasagna alternative. Get our Baked Tortellini with Chard, Mushrooms, and Mozzarella recipe.

    4. Creamy Spinach Tomato Tortellini

    This recipe calls for Barilla Three-Cheese Tortellini, which—according to Bombshell Bling blogger Sarah—“doesn’t taste like dried pasta at all!” The sauce you toss them in is a luxurious blend of half-and-half, tomato, and Parmesan cheese. Get Bombshell Bling’s Creamy Spinach Tomato Tortellini recipe.

    5. Sausage, Kale, and Tortellini Soup

    Use two kinds of broth (chicken and vegetable) for a complex base. Apart from that, the sausage is turkey and the cheese tortellini are fresh, adding up to a soup that goes down light but feels comfort-food satisfying. Get Life’s Ambrosia’s Sausage, Kale, and Tortellini Soup recipe.

    6. Slow Cooker Italian Tortellini Stew

    A convenience soup that doesn’t taste that way. Canned tomatoes and beans, fresh zucchini and onion, and dried cheese tortellini fall beneath the patient-simmer spell of the crockpot, and come out rich and deeply flavored. Get Betty Crocker’s Slow Cooker Italian Tortellini Stew recipe.

    7. Deep-Fried Tortellini

    Like toasted ravioli, deep-fried tortellini are a guilty pleasure. The little stuffed pasta shapes fry up crisp and slightly chewy, with a creamy-soft cheese center. Serve with marinara sauce for dunking. Get Kleinworth & Co.’s Deep-Fried Tortellini recipe.

    8. Quick Tortellini Bake with Rose Sauce

    Rose sauce is a tart and creamy blend of cream cheese, milk, and premade spaghetti sauce (which means it’s also quick and easy to throw together). The dairy softens the tomato-sauce edge, a worthy medium for baked cheese tortellini. Get Pass the Sushi’s Quick Tortellini Bake with Rose Sauce recipe.

    9. Tortellini, Broccoli, and Bacon Salad

    Crisp cooked bacon, halved cherry tomatoes, broccoli florets, chives, sunflower seeds, and coleslaw dressing, meet cheese tortellini. The resulting salad is full of contrasting textures and harmonious flavors. Get Betty Crocker’s Tortellini, Broccoli, and Bacon Salad recipe.

    Ingredients of Stuffed Tortellini

    • 500 gm cherry tomatoes
    • 1 teaspoon spice oregano
    • black pepper as required
    • 2 cloves garlic
    • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
    • water as required
    • 4 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
    • salt as required
    • 250 gm pasta tortelleni
    • 2 teaspoon pesto sauce
    • 6 basil

    How to make Stuffed Tortellini

    Step 1 Coat the tomatoes evenly with seasoned oil

    To prepare this palatable dish, preheat the oven at 200 degrees Celsius. Meanwhile, spread a baking sheet, place cherry tomatoes topped with a drizzle of 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Season the tomatoes with salt, black pepper, and oregano spice. Make sure the tomatoes are evenly coated with the seasoned oil by rolling them over and over inside the baking sheet itself.

    Step 2 Roast the tomatoes in oven for 15 minutes

    By now, the oven should be ready to roast. Place the baking sheet with tomatoes inside the oven and roast the tomatoes for 15 minutes or until they start to burst out.

    Step 3 Cook the tortellini and drain the excess water

    While the tomatoes are roasting in the oven, put a large pan over medium flame and boil water in it. Add the tortellini pasta with a pinch of salt and a little olive oil. Once cooked, drain the water and keep the pasta aside until required.

    Step 4 Saute garlic and assemble all the remaining ingredients

    Now, heat 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in a skillet over low-medium heat. After the oil turns hot, add minced garlic and saute until it turns golden brown. Turn off the flame and to the garlic, add roasted tomatoes and pesto sauce. Using a fork, stab the tomatoes to break them open. Stir the mixture and then add cooked tortellini. Pour some more pesto sauce over the tortellini and continue stirring. Sprinkle shredded parmesan cheese and garnish with torn or chopped basil leaves.
