This was very easy and very good!! I used "Italian Bread crumbs" and that worked fine. I also used a little olive oil with the butter. Maybe a tablespoon. Great recipe!! :-))

Wow, this was great. I used pork for scallopini (very thin cutlets). I coated them as directed then pan-fried them 2-3 minutes each side only... I did not cook them in the sauce. I added the sauce and cheese when I plated them, and the cutlets were nice and crispy. Next time I will add a bit of sauce, cover them with mozzarella cheese, and broil them until the cheese is bubbly. PS: The 3 year old gobbled down strips of the cutlets!!
