- 1 qt. peanut oil
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 4 eggs - beaten

- 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese
- 3 tbsp All Purpose Seasoning I like the one sold at Cabellas
- 1 tbsp dried parsley
- 3 tbsp granulated garlic
- 2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp pepper
- 1 chilled Tortellini 20 ounce package
Preheat your oil in large stockpot over medium-high heat.
Place your flour in a large bowl, beaten eggs in another large bowl.
Place all your seasonings, cheese & bread crumbs in a large zip top bag.
Working in 2 batches - place your tortellini in your flour- toss to coat
Shaking off excess flour- place tortellini in bowl with eggs & toss - coating well
Transfer to your bag of seasonings - zip top closed & give a good shake to make sure tortellini is completely coated
Once oil is hot (about 350 degrees) - place several tortellini in carefully & allow to cook until golden brown & cooked throughout
Remove & place in a large bowl lined with a paper towel to drain. Give a light sprinkle of salt.
Repeat with remaining tortellini
Serve immediately- can dip in marinara sauce if desired
