Dear Phaedrus,
Forgive me for not taking the time to see if this in you archives, but I
think it is a recipe many would enjoy, so am sending it your way to use if
you see fit.
A neighbor of my aunt's owned an Italian Restaurant on "The Hill" in St.
Louis and, if my memory is correct, this recipe was the result of a mistake
when a single ravioli fell into a pot of hot oil and started a whole new
fad.  It's good, for sure.
St. Louis Toasted Ravioli 

2 T milk
1 large egg lightly beaten
3/4 c dry Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
1 t salt optional
1/2  of a 27.5-oz size pkg frozen cheese-filled ravioli, thawed
vegetable oil
Grated Parmesan cheese
spaghetti sauce or pizza sauce

Combine milk and egg in a small bowl. Place breadcrumbs and salt in a
shallow bowl. Dip ravioli in milk mixture and coat w/ breadcrumbs. Pour oil
to depth of 2 inches in a Dutch oven; heat to 350F. Fry ravioli, a few at a
time, 1 min on each side or until golden. Drain on paper towels.

Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve immediately with warm spaghetti or
pizza sauce.

1 cup granulated sugar 
1/2 cup unsifted all-purpose flour

of aluminum foil, overlapping the edges for easy removal; butter the foil. 

For the brownie layer: In a double-boiler (or microwave), melt the chocolates 
and butter just until blended. Combine the eggs and sugar in a mixing bowl, 
beating until the sugar is dissolved. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and 
the chocolate-butter mixture. Mix well. Pour the batter into the prepared pan. 
Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until just done. Cool completely. Freeze if desired. 

For the peppermint filling: Combine the powdered sugar and butter. Blend in the 
milk and peppermint flavoring. Add the food coloring, if desired. Place over the 
double-boiler (or set bowl over a pan half-filled with 120 water) and stir until 
smooth. Spread evenly over the brownie layer. Chill in the refrigerator while 
preparing the glaze. 

For the chocolate glaze: Melt the chocolate and butter over a double- boiler 
(or microwave) and stir to blend smoothly. Spread evenly over the mint layer. 
Chill until set (or freeze, securely wrapped, for up to 2 weeks). Cut into squares. 

Yields 32 to 48 small square brownies
