READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Sweetiebarbara

From my room mate Margaret in 1962. I still have the typed recipe on the 3 index cards she gave me. On the card it says a good source of Vitamins A, B, and C. On the card, I wrote it takes me 1 1/2 to 2 hours to fix, but then I was a new cook, and very slow. This is quite delicious.

I have been making both chicken and veal parm like this for over 40 years. I thought I was the only one who layered it in a cassarole dish. A couple of things I do differently, I add parsley to the bread crumbs and parm cheese, And I coat the veal in the bread crumbs first, then egg, and then bread crumbs again this makes the bread crumbs to sitck. Try it!
