  • 2 lbs. veal, cut into 12 scallops & pounded to 1/16 inch thick
  • 6 thin slices of Polish ham or possibly prosciutto
  • 6 thin slices of Swiss Gruyere cheese
  • 9 tbsp. sweet butter
  • Salt & freshly grnd black pepper
  • 3/4 c. bread crumbs, seasoned with salt and pepper
  • 1/2 c. flour
  • 3 Large eggs, beaten with 5 tbsp. heavy cream
  • 1/4 c. vegetable oil
  • 1 recipe for Cordon Bleu Sauce (below)


  1. Brush one side of each veal scallop and each slice of ham and cheese with 4 Tbsp. of the butter, melted. Place a slice of ham and cheese between two of the veal scallops, with the buttered slices on the inside. Do this with all the scallops, and trim to make 6 neat sandwiches. Sprinkle the veal sandwiches on both sides with a little salt and pepper. Dredge the veal sandwiches in a mix of the seasoned bread crumbs and flour and chill for 2 to 3 hrs. The butter will congeal and hold the sandwiches together.
  2. When ready to cook them, dredge the scallops in the bread crumb mix again, then in the egg-cream mix and again in the bread crumbs. Heat 3 Tbsp. of the butter with 2 Tbsp. of the oil in a frying pan over high heat. Brown the scallops on both sides, 2 to 3 min per side. Place in baking dish and add in the remaining 2 Tbsp. butter. Bake for 15 min in a 375 degree preheated oven. Pour Cordon Blue Sauce on and serve. Serves 6.
