Break 2 eggs into a mixer bowl and beat with a whisk or a fork.

You can also use a blender to do this more effectively and rapidly.

Stage 4
Escalopes in a sesame crust
To coat your escalopes, set up a production line by arranging all the elements in the order you will use them: first the escalopes, then the beaten egg, the crumbs in a wide dish, and a plate at the end.

Note that I'm right-handed. If you are left-handed, arrange everything the other way round (final plate on the right).

...and fry on both sides until nicely browned.

Turn down the heat slightly and leave on medium heat to finish cooking through.

Stage 10

Serve with your choice of accompaniment. Here it is white rice.
You can use pork instead of veal if you prefer.

It is quicker just to dip the escalopes once, but the coating will not be as crisp.
Should be eaten as soon as possible while the coating is still crisp.
Home made.
