These are really quite easy to put together. The fresh taste of the sauce makes them so delicious. I think this is one of my best dinners. There's enough sauce for a side of pasta.

As it's said...you can fool some of the people some of the time because my husband thought this was veal! I slathered the sauce at the bottom of my baking pan placing the breaded cutlets on top so as to keep my crumbs crisp. I, also, had no mozzarella so I topped it off with cheddar. Move over Paula D.

Awesome. Used four boneless porkchops and it turned out great. I had some leftover bread crumbs from another recipe and used two egg whites (also leftover) and a little milk to dip them in first. Served it with Italian Rice and snow peas. Delicious.

Yum! We loved this version and I love the versatility of this recipe. The sauce was fantastic and easily made ahead. I substituted some fresh basil I had on hand for some the the rosemary and decreased the oil a bit. I used some whole grain bread and rye bread which was great for the crumbs. Proportions and cook times are perfect. I'll definitely be making this recipe again. Thank you!
