Go out for some

Cook your own
Go to a specialty butcher shop or a well-stocked grocery store to get the best veal cutlet you can find. Pound the veal till thin, then coat it in flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs. Just make sure not to push the breadcrumbs into the veal. Cook till golden brown and serve with your preferred garnish or side dish.
