Classic Veal Parmesan Sandwiches
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 10 minutes Serves: 6
6 veal cutlets (3 ounces each) salt, to taste
ground black pepper, to taste
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg wash
1 cup breadcrumbs
1 cup vegetable oil
12 tablespoons tomato sauce
3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
6 slices provolone cheese
6 slices mozzarella cheese
6 sub rolls
Heat oven to 350 F.
Pound each veal cutlet between sheets of parchment or plastic wrap until 1/4-inch thick.
Blot veal dry. Season each cutlet with salt and pepper, to taste. Dredge veal in flour; shake off excess. Dip in egg wash and dredge in breadcrumbs.
In a large skillet over medium heat, heat
about 1/8-inch oil to about 350 F. Working in batches, add breaded veal to hot oil and pan fry first side until golden brown and crisp, about
2 minutes. Turn once and pan fry second side until it reaches an internal temperature of 160 F, about 1-2 minutes.
Drain on paper towels or wire rack set over a baking sheet.
Add 2 tablespoons tomato sauce to each veal cutlet and sprinkle 1/2 tablespoon Parmesan cheese on top. Add one slice provolone and mozzarella cheese to each cutlet.
Place veal parmesan in oven 2-3 minutes, or until the cheese begins to melt and veal is hot. Add veal to sub rolls and serve.
