One sure thing is that breaded veal is a favourite of many. A perfectly coated, thin breaded veal escalope is tender and juicy with a crispy bite. 

Lemon, parsley and capers are the perfect finish to this dish.

Veal Milanese coats the meat, originally veal chops, with an egg mixture and breadcrumbs. Parmesan cheese can be added in the bread mix.

The Wiener Schnitzel, a cut from the rump or the flank, is a drier version with the meat first being dredged in flour.
