PORK, MOZZARELLA AND PARMIGIANA SANDWICHES
Try these for an easy, decadent and not to mention handsome weekend sandwich treat.
Preheat oven to 250°C.
Place the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in separate bowls then, working one piece at a time, place the pork in the flour, then the egg and finally the breadcrumbs, ensuring each piece is coated well but any excess is shaken off. Set aside on a tray or plate.
Heat a frying pan with a little oil and add the butter to melt over a medium heat.
Cook the schnitzel in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan, turning to brown on each side for 2-3 mins or until cooked through. Transfer to a roasting tray and continue to cook the remaining pieces of pork.
Top each piece of the cooked schnitzel with a slice of prosciutto, a slice of the mozzarella and then sprinkle with the Parmesan. Place in the pre-heated oven and cook for 5-7 mins, or until the cheese has melted.
Slice the buns open and place a good spoonful of tomato passatta on each, then some cos lettuce and finally top with the schnitzel. Serve hot with plenty of napkins.
