Toasted Gnocchi Bites

Prep Time: 20 mins, Cook Time: 9 mins Total, Time: 29 mins, Servings: 8

Ingredients

16-oz. potato gnocchi,
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 large eggs
3/4 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
2/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
3/4 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. pepper
canola oil, for frying
Homemade marinara sauce, for dipping

Instructions

Cook the gnocchi in a pot of salted boiling water. Drain and let cool.

Place flour in one bowl. Beat eggs with one tablespoon water in another bowl. In a third bowl, mix together breadcrumbs, Parmesan cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, and pepper with a fork until well combined.

Toss the gnocchi, a few at a time, first in the flour, then egg, then bread crumb mixture. Place the gnocchi on a plate lined with parchment.

Add the canola oil to a large deep skillet about one-inch high. Heat oil over medium heat. When the oil is hot, fry the gnocchi in batches until golden brown and crispy, about 2 1/2-3 minutes total.

Remove with a slotted spoon to a plate lined with a paper towel to drain before adding to a platter and serving with some warm marinara sauce.

Notes:

Make sure to heat your canola oil in your skillet over medium heat, not higher, so the gnocchi browns evenly and doesn’t burn.

I use Italian-style bread crumbs for this recipe not panko crumbs. I like to add the extra Italian seasoning to give the gnocchi more flavor.

You can also do these in batches in an air fryer. I have not tried baking them, but I may bake a few today.

Not to open the sauce vs. gravy debate; Marinara sauce usually refers to a sauce made from tomatoes that contains no meat or meat juices.

You can also try other dipping sauces such as; Honey Mustard, Regular or Dijon Mustard, a Cheesy Dip, and Salsa. Or any combination of these!

Enjoy!!
