    Alan Leonetti's Note:

    This recipe is originally from SABATINO'S RESTAURANT in Baltimore, Maryland, upon which I made a couple of minor changes, such as changing the use of half and half to heavy cream.

      This is NOT a recipe for an authentic is a recipe for something that should have been re-named. No Francese recipe calls for Bread Crumbs, Sherry, Marsala or Prosciutto and certainly no matter what meat or poultry you use,none is never sauteed in that much butter. Veal is notoriously difficult to brown properly, even floured it is tedious but worth it. Oregano and Virgin Olive Oil is never used either. Virgin imparts too much flavor into it. Francese has a very delicate flavor and does not need a potent herb lik/e oregano put into it. Parmesan, or any other cheese, is also not a part of Francese and just another flavor that does not belong in this recipe. By the look and feel of it, Francese isn't something you would like or actually appreciate. This recipe is far too extended and has too many conflicting ingredients to be considered a true Francese.
