VEAL PARMESAN SANDWICH {without so much veal}

image

I’ve never liked it when people  get on their soapbox and dictate how others must live their lives in order to be “acceptable”, so I won’t do that.  But,  I refuse to purchase veal in any form because of the general mistreatment of the young calves and their living conditions.  If you love it, I say enjoy, it’s just not for me.

Instead, we use turkey breast cutlets, pound them out to make them thinner and more tender.  Then, we bread the cutlets, fry them in a small amount of olive oil and build the sandwich.  Its an easy recipe and is a little messy to prepare but WELL worth it.

Instructions
  1. Mix parmesan, Italian breadcrumbs and salt and pepper to taste. Remember the herbs and additional seasonings are already in the Italian breadcrumbs. This is the dredging mix.
Dredging Station
  1. Ive found that it's best to set up 3 dredging pie pans. In 1 pan add flour and salt and pepper; in a second pan, make the egg wash, and in the third pan, mix the breadcrumbs and grated cheese.
Prepare the turkey cutlets
  1. Place each cutlet between two pieces of waxed paper and pound until about 1/8 inch thick. You want them fairly thin so they cook up quickly.
  2. Set up a dredging station: flour, egg wash, and seasoned breadcrumbs and grated cheese. First dredge the cutlet in the flour on both sides, dust off excess flour; Next, dip into the egg wash on both sides; Then, dredge in the bread crumbs with Parmesan
Fry the cutlets
  1. Heat cast iron skillet, give it a light spray of Pam then add a small amount of olive oil. Enough to cover the surface of the pan.
  2. Once the oil is hot, add the cutlets, one at a time. After pounding, the cutlets grow in size so you'll only be able to cook 2 or 3 at a time. Brown on both sides, then drain on paper towels.
  3. While you are frying the cutlets, heat your favorite pasta sauce in a separate pan.
Assemble the sandwich
  1. Slice the Italian roll vertically, spread a bit of sauce on the bottom; Add the fried cutlets after cutting into appropriate slices to fit the roll. Now, spread a small amount of sauce on top of the cutlet, top with additional grated cheese, add the top of the roll and serve.
  2. I like mine cut on an angle and served along with a small bowl of additional sauce for dipping and additional grated cheese handy to add more if you like. We don't serve anything on the side because the sandwich is quite filling. A small salad would go nicely with it.
