Panneed Veal with Stone Ground Grits and Marsala Sauce

Serves 4

8 (2-ounce) veal loins

2 cups flour

4 eggs, beaten

1/4 cup milk

2 cups dried fine bread crumbs

Olive oil for frying

1/4 cup grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese

Salt and Pepper to taste

Season each piece of veal with salt and pepper. Place each portion of veal between two sheets of plastic wrap. Gently pound the veal very thin.  In a mixing bowl, whisk the eggs and milk together.  Dredge the veal in the flour. Dip the veal in the egg wash, letting any excess drip off. Dredge the veal in the bread crumbs, coating each side completely. In a large saute pan, heat the olive oil. When the oil is hot, pan-fry the veal for 2 minutes on each side. Remove from the oil and drain on a paper-lined pan.
