“This recipe had been sitting in my recipe box for several years waiting for me to give it a try and I am so glad I finally got around to tasting it. The magazine clipping claims that this is a recipe used by the chef on the US President's official plane, Air Force One. This is so very juicy and so scrumptious.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk together eggs and milk in a small bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix bread crumbs and lemon zest together in a shallow bowl.
  3. Heat a large skillet over medium heat and melt some butter in it (as much or as little as you prefer- use less if using a nonstick skillet).
  4. While butter is melting, dip veal pieces into egg mixture, then coat with crumbs mixture.
  5. Pan fry in melted butter until cooked through, just a few minutes per side (time will vary based on how thinly you have pounded your cutlets)- until cooked through and no longer pink inside, but still juicy.
  6. Season with salt& pepper to taste.
  7. Sprinkle with a bit of fresh lemon juice to taste and serve immediately.
