Veal cordon bleu

There's something seductive about the melting cheese in this Veal Cordon Bleu that makes it timeless and one of our all-time favourites.



1.Place the veal steaks between sheets of plastic wrap; pound with a meat mallet until veal is an even thickness. Place a slice of ham and cheese onto one half of the veal steaks, then fold in half to enclose the filling. Press the edges together firmly.
2.Toss the veal parcels in combined flour, salt and pepper, shake away the excess. Dip into the egg and coat in breadcrumbs, pressing the breadcrumbs on firmly. Place the veal on a tray then cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
3.Heat the oil in a large pan and shallow-fry the veal, in batches, until browned on both sides and cooked as desired; drain on absorbent paper.
