Cutlet bolognese

Jan 16, 2024 | Italy

Cotoletta is a dish found in Italian culinary culture from north to south. In Milan it is breaded and fried, in Palermo it is grilled. There are many variations of the schnitzel along the Boot, and of course Bologna has its own as well. Cotoletta alla Bolognese is prepared with a breaded veal cutlet garnished with prosciutto and grated cheese. It is definitely one of the most enriched and flavorful schnitzel recipes you can find.
