Chicken cutlets

Plain breadcrumbs 

Grated Romano cheese




Olive or canola oil 


2 pounds chopped meat - Blend 1 lb. sirloin and 1 lb. chuck for fat to lean ratio, or use 2 lbs. ground round, which is kind of in the middle. Some people like to mix ground beef with ground pork, also

2 small cloves of garlic, grated 

Sprig of parsley, chopped fine 

Salt, one teaspoon - Put in your hand first, never directly into the mix, or you can over-salt

3 or 4 eggs, (depending on size)

One cup of grated Romano cheese

One cup of plain breadcrumbs - the ratio of breadcrumbs and cheese should always be even

Canola oil to fry them in
