Sausage Ravioli is the ultimate party food! Deep-fry these and dip them in our homemade sweet and sour sauce for a crowd-favorite appetizer!
Some of our favorite foods in the world are appetizers. During the holiday season, we really indulge in our favorite bite-sized snacks. The cold weather and seeing more friends and family this time of year makes us want to warm up and bond over delicious food. Sausage Ravioli is the perfect bite-sized appetizer. They were loaded with delicious pork fillings that we couldn’t get enough of. Luckily, we usually make these when we’re home alone, so no one sees us sneaking extra bites into the filling as we finish our wontons. Maybe you should all double this recipe and just keep extra for yourself!
Pork sausage gives these wontons the best flavor, but you can really use any ground meat you like.
You can easily find canned or frozen water chestnuts at your local grocery store. However, you can also find fresh water chestnuts at Asian markets. You are welcome to use fresh, canned or frozen. Always thaw frozen water chestnuts before attempting to chop them.
If you’re having trouble finding these, try the refrigerated section of your local grocery store’s produce department.
Can I bake sausage ravioli?
We know not everyone is as crazy about fried food as we are! If you prefer grilling to frying, you absolutely can! Simply bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees for about 5 minutes, until warmed through.
Air Fryer Instructions:
Generously spray the wontons with oil and fry at 375 degrees until golden brown, about 3 to 4 minutes.
Note in advance:
Sausage wontons are best served immediately after frying, so pre-frying is not recommended. However, you can precook the filling up to 24 hours in advance and store it in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
Storage and Reheating Instructions:
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for 3 to 4 days. To keep crisp, reheat in oven at 325°F for 5-10 minutes or until heated through. Cooked wontons can be frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months. Reheat at 325°F for 10 to 15 minutes. Don’t try the fried frozen wontons.
