      I have made this recipe several times and really enjoy it. I have tried others but found this one to be preferable. I use pork cutlets when I make it. The only change I have recently started making is to bake it instead of fry it. I lightly spray the breaded cutlets with olive oil and put it in a 350 degree oven for 30-40 minutes. The breading gets crispy, but seems much healthier than frying it in shortening. The idea of serving with lemon wedges was excellent; what a nice enhancement! My children and husband love this recipe, too.

      This is one of my all time favourite dishes, pork can also be susbtitued for veal. I serve mine with mashed potatoes and coleslaw.

      I used a pork cutlet and unfortuneately did not have a lemon in the house but even with out the lemon this is a very tasty recipe. Instead of shortening I used 2 tbsp lite Olive oil. Served with steamed broccoli & pasta with a tomato/vegetable sauce Lovely dinner thank-you TNlady
