Shape into palm-size patties. Dredge in bread crumbs. Fry cutlets in hot vegetable oil until done, about 5 minutes on each side. Transfer cutlets to oven-proof pan and keep in a 300º F. oven, while cooking remaining cutlets. Serves 6-8
This dish is incredibly delicious and very easy to make!!! Absolute favorite of mine to make anytime of the year, especially in fall and winter. I have to say that mash potatoes and some green beans accompany this dish perfectly!!!!
