Breaded Chicken Cutlet, Mozzarella and Crispy Proscuitto Sandwiches
Prep time: 20 mins.
Cook time: 20 mins.
8 chicken cutlets, thinly sliced
Vegetable oil for frying
1 1/2 cups seasoned breadcrumbs, placed in a bowl large enough to fit cutlets
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 eggs, whisked in a bowl large enough to fit cutlets
1 1/2 cups flour in a bowl large enough to fit cutlets
8 slices fresh mozzarella, about 1 inch thick
8 slices prosciutto
2 loaves Italian bread, cut into sandwich slices
1. Season cutlets lightly with salt and pepper.
2. Dip cutlets in flour (be sure to shake off any excess flour), then egg and lastly the breadcrumbs. Be sure to completely coat cutlet with the breadcrumbs pressing into place. Arrange on a plate, cover and set aside.
3. Heat a large skillet over very high heat until hot. Add oil to a depth of 1/4-inch. When the oil is almost smoking, add cutlets but be sure not to crowd the pan.
4. Cook until the cutlets are golden on the bottom, about 2 minutes. Turn and cook on the second side for another 2 minutes.
5. Remove from pan and drain excess oil on a plate lined with paper towels. Set aside until ready to assemble sandwich.
6. Preheat oven to 350F. Arrange proscuitto slices on a baking sheet and bake until crispy about 15 minutes. Remove and set aside.
7. To assemble sandwich place one chicken cutlet on the bread, add mozzarella, drizzle with olive oil and fresh ground pepper. Top with crispy prosciutto. Arrange on a platter and serve.
Bize Grilled Sweet and Hot Sausage with Caramelized Pepper and Onions
Prep time: 20 mins.
Cook time: 30 mins.
3 links sweet Italian sausage, cut into bite-size pieces

3 orange peppers, cut into strips
2 large onions, sliced thin crosswise
Salt and pepper, to taste

2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil on medium-high heat. Add onion and cook for about 3 minutes.
3. Add the peppers, salt and pepper. Stir occasionally, until the onion is golden and the peppers are cooked through and slightly “charred," about 10 minutes (do not burn, the peppers and onions should have a nice caramel color).
