Veal Parmesan

Updated: Jan 3, 2020

This is one of the iconic Italian dishes. Ask anyone to name 3

Italian dishes and the probable answer will be Spaghetti and Meatballs,

Lasagna and Veal Parmesan. This dish is also easily made with chicken

breast. There is nothing like cutting into a piece of Veal Parmesan and

having strings of melted mozzarella cheese stretching from the plate

to your fork.

4 4-ounce slices of Veal pounded thin

3 Eggs beaten

¾ cup Seasoned Breadcrumbs

¾ cup Parmesan Cheese grated

1 stick Butter melted

Italian Red Sauce recipe follows

4 slices Mozzarella Cheese

Cooked Pasta

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Put melted butter in a 13×9-inch

baking dish. Combine breadcrumbs and Parmesan cheese and mix

well. Dip veal in egg then coat with breadcrumb/cheese mixture.

Repeat the last step double breading veal. Put in baking dish and cook

for 5-6 minutes on each side. Pour Italian Red sauce around veal and

cook for 5 more minutes. Cover each piece of veal with a slice of

Mozzarella cheese. Cook until cheese is melted. Serve with pasta

topped with sauce from pan.
