Today is the feast day of St Ambrose, the famous bishop of Milan. Veal Chop Milanese is the recipe for St Ambrose.
Costoletta alla Milanese (Veal Chop Milanese)
4 veal chops salt and pepper
1 egg 1 cup bread crumbs
6 tablespoons butter
Have the veal chops cut about 1/2 inch thick. Beat the egg with one tablespoon water and season with salt and pepper. Dip the chops first into bread crumbs, then into beaten egg, and again into bread crumbs. Melt the butter and fry the chops for about ten minutes on each side–until golden brown. Serve on a hot platter with slices of lemon dusted with chopped parsley. [link]
