Breaded Veal with Sautéed Onions,
Prosciutto and Peppers


This Breaded Veal dish is similar to a dish I had earlier this week at RoSals Restaurant on Taylor Street. It’s a simple recipe I’m sure you’ll enjoy. The veal is tender and the flavors from the prosciutto and provolone cheese enhance the flavor of the veal.

Provolone Val Padana is primarily made in the Northern regions of Italy. My best experience with provolone is a glass of wine, a loaf of bread, a piece of provolone and leave me alone. Ever since I was younger that’s the only recipe I needed to make a great meal.

This Breaded Veal is layered with sautéed onions, sweet peppers, mushrooms and simply topped with the prosciutto and provolone. You can replace the veal with chicken if you want.
