  • 1 Large Frozen Lasagna
  • 2 cups Italian bread crumbs
  • 1 cup fresh grated parmesan cheese
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup milk
  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper


  • Heat your frying oil in a large heavy pot or dutch oven. Using a candy thermometer, heat oil to between 350°F and 375°F.
  • Cut your frozen lasagna into 2"-4" pieces. You can even cut lasagna triangles. The smaller pieces will cook all the way through while frying. Larger pieces will need to be cooked longer in the oven once fried.
  • 3 shallow bowls of flour mixture, egg wash, breadcrumb mixture
    In one shallow bowl or shallow dish, mix flour, salt and pepper. In the second shallow bowl combine breadcrumbs and grated parmesan cheese. In a third bowl whisk egg and milk together.
  • Coat the piece of lasagna in the flour mixture first. Next, coat the piece in the egg wash. Finally, thoroughly coat the piece in the breadcrumb mixture.
  • Make sure your oil is between 350°F and 375°F. Deep fry the piece of lasagna until golden brown, approximately 3-4 minutes.
  • Remove lasagna from oil and place on a paper towel to drain.
  • Use a kitchen thermometer to test the internal temperature of the lasagna. If you cut larger pieces it likely is not hot enough. If it is not at least 160°F put in the oven for 15 minutes at 350°F.


  1. Use your. hands to thoroughly coat the lasagna with each coat. Gently press the flour mixture and the breadcrumb mixture onto top, bottom and sides of the lasagna piece. This will help it adhere to the lasagna and not fall apart while frying.
  2. Sometimes omitting salt is fine in a recipe. We've tried this with and without and agree that it's much better with the salt!
  3. Remove your lasagna from the freezer and leave on the counter for 30 minutes before cutting. Frozen lasagna can be difficult to cut through. Alternatively, cut defrosted lasagna then freeze.
  4. Try using the air fryer! Instead of deep frying try using the air fryer.
