1 eggs size large    
2 tbsp bread crumbs   16 g

Before you start

If possible, choose «milk-fed veal» which is much younger and more tender than the grain-fed one.

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Tenderize the veal by flattening the cutlets using a meat pounder. Make a few shallow cuts around the outside edge to avoid curling during cooking.
  2. Prepare 2 shallow dishes: beat the egg in one, and put the bread crumbs in the other. Dip one cutlet at the time in the egg, let the excess egg drip off before coating the cutlet with the bread crumbs. Turn the cutlets to coat both sides, then set them aside.
  3. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Add the cutlets and sauté until golden, about 4 min on each side. Add salt and pepper.
  4. Meanwhile, dice the tomatoes discarding the seeds.
  5. Transfer the cutlets to the warmed plates, arrange the tomatoes on top, then serve.


The remaining beaten egg may be cooked as an omelet and served along side the cutlets.
