This week I am making a Baked Cheddar Jack and Bacon Ravioli recipe. A few weeks ago I shared with you that I was in the Kraft Fresh Take recipe challenge. I shared my challenge flavor, which is The Kraft Fresh Take Cheddar Jack & Bacon flavor.

 For that part of the challenge I shared a Chicken Cheddar Jack and Bacon Quesadilla recipe.

This time  around I am sharing a homemade Baked Cheddar Jack and Bacon Ravioli recipe.

Have you had a chance to try  Fresh Take yet? The uses for this product is really limitless. Anything that can be coated in bread crumbs can be made using the Kraft Fresh Take breadcrumb mix. The difference between Fresh Take and regular bread crumbs is the Fresh Take bread crumb mix is available in some great flavors and of course there is cheese included. Cheese makes everything taste better!

Another great benefit is that you can get that delicious crispy fried flavor from the oven instead of frying.

The full recipe can be found at the bottom of this post in the Ziplist format

What you will need to make this Baked Cheddar Jack and Bacon Ravioli Recipe.

Thirty minutes before you are really to fill the ravioli cook 6 slices of bacon until they are crisp.

Drain well and chop finely.

Add the cooked bacon

Mix the cooked and chopped bacon into the ricotta filling. Be sure to chop the bacon finely or it could poke a hole in the Wonton wrapper.

To assemble the ravioli….

Fill the ravioli

 

Place a scant teaspoon of the ricotta filling in the center of a wonton wrapper.

Dampen the edges by dipping your finger tip into the bowl of water and running a bead of water around the edge of the wonton wrapper.

Making Wonton Ravioli

Place a second Wonton wrapper over the filling, lining up the edges. Work your fingers around the edge to seal being sure to work the air out of the pocket of filling.

Repeat until all the ravioli are filled.

Keep the ravioli covered with a damp paper towel to keep them from drying out as you cook them.

Fill a pot with water, salt to taste and bring to a boil. Cook one or two ravioli at a time. When the ravioli floats to the top of the water immediately dip it into the bag of Cheddar Jack and Bacon Fresh Take bread crumb and cheese mixture.

Preheat the oven to 375 and bake the ravioli.

Serve the baked ravioli with my homemade alfredo sauce or pick up your favorite jarred alfredo sauce and enjoy as an appetizer. Or you could serve this meal as dinner and instead of dipping the ravioli you could pour a light coating of the alfredo sauce over them and enjoy them as a meal.

  1. Okay, so this is going to be my new favorite way to eat ravioli!

  2. These sound incredible!

  3. Wow, I had no idea ravioli was that easy to make. I’m definitely going to look for those wrappers and try this one.

  4. Oh my goodness these look mouthwatering! What a fabulous appetizer!

  5. This would be such a fun recipe for my young teen daughter to help with. Not so boring like many of our recipes and she and dad are especially bacon lovers! Thank you for the share, I pinned!

  6. Everybody loves bacon :) however this is a new twist that I have never seen before. I need to take a look at your alfredo sauce, because this looks delish by itself, but it seems that the alfredo kicks this to another level.
