Stuffed Veal Cutlet

Here’s a great dish to impress your guests without lost time in the kitchen.

To make it for 4 people, you need : 4 veal cutlets, 4 slices of bacon, 4 slices of swiss cheese, some kitchen twine and, to accompany it, I suggest a mashed sweet potato with : 4 lbs sweet potatoes, 1 cup of whole milk, 1 T. butter, 1 T. heavy cream, ground nutmeg (optional), salt and pepper.

Stack each veal cutlet with a slice of bacon and a slice of swiss cheese. Roll it and tie it with some kitchen twine in the middle, to be sure it will not open during cooking. Put some salt (not too much because the bacon is already salty) and pepper around it. Brown them over med high heat in a frying pan with a little bit of butter. Turn it very often to brown uniformly. After that, put it in an oven-proof dish and cook it in the oven 20 minutes at a temperature of 300 °F. That will be enough to melt the cheese.  It’s ready to serve, now you just have to cut the kitchen twine and don’t worry, now that it’s cooked, your roll will stay a roll.

During the time your meat is in the oven you can make your mashed sweet potatoes. Wash and peel the potatoes. Put it in a pan of boiling water and cook it for 30 minutes. Empty the water and mix it with the milk, the butter and the cream. Add some ground nutmeg (if you have some), salt and pepper at your convenience.

Bon appétit !
