Veal Saltimbocca Recipe

A delicious wine sauce makes this hearty entree even more special. You can assemble the rolls ahead of time and chill until ready to cook.—Vance Werner Jr., Franklin, Wisconsin
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 25 min. Cook: 10 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 2 ounces fontina cheese
  • 8 thin slices prosciutto or deli ham
  • 16 fresh sage leaves
  • 8 veal cutlets (4 ounces each)
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/4 cup white wine or chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice


  • 1. Cut cheese into 1/4-in. strips. Place a prosciutto slice, 2 sage leaves and cheese down center of each cutlet. Roll up and secure with toothpicks.
  • 2. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine flour, salt and pepper. Add veal, a few rolls at a time, and shake to coat. In a large skillet, brown veal in butter and oil on all sides; remove and keep warm.
  • 3. Add broth and wine, stirring to loosen browned bits from pan. Return rolls to the pan; cook 8-10 minutes or until a thermometer reads 160° and sauce is thickened. Stir in parsley and lemon juice; heat through. Discard toothpicks; serve with sauce. Yield: 8 servings.

"Really good. My only issue was that my cutlets were much smaller than recipe called for. They worked but felt would be better with the larger cutlets."

"I've never had saltimbocca before so I can't say whether it tastes like it should or not, but I made the recipe exactly as written and it was absolutely delicious. The sauce was absolutely bursting with flavor. I would gladly spend hours slaving over a hot stove for this type of flavor, but luckily, you don't have to. This recipe is a breeze to make, but looks and tastes like something you would order in a very expensive restaurant. I can't wait to make it again."
