How to Reheat Leftovers:

These toasted ravioli are easy to reheat. Place the toasted ravioli in the air fryer or in the oven. We like to reheat in the oven or air fryer instead of the microwave so they still have the crispy texture.

  1. Is there a way to do this as baked rather then fried? If so, can you include those alternative instructions. Thanks.

  2. Baking would have a different texture. I’m sure you could bake them, but I haven’t tried it yet.
