La Belle Cuisine


Délice de Veau Vosgienne à la Mama

(Veal Cordon Bleu, Braised)

The Lutece Cookbook

by André Soltner, 1995, Alfred A. Knopf


“Here is my mother’s version of what is usually called Veal Cordon Bleu.
It is country cooking, far away from classic French food. Chefs of haute
cuisine will have nothing to do with it.
But in my childhood [in Alsace], my mother made it for us often. Some-
times, she would put it in a very slow oven, and then go to church. When
she got home, it would be just ready.
This was one of my favorites of the many dishes my mother made, and I
have it as a regular item in the lunch menu at Lutèce.”

1 pound veal (loin or top round), boned
and trimmed, cut into 8 scallops
6 ounces Swiss cheese (Emmental or
Gruyère), cut in 16 2-inch squares
3 ounces smoked ham (2 slices,
each slice cut in 4 parts, each part
approximately a 2-inch square)
Pepper, fresh ground
Flour for dusting the veal
2 eggs beaten with a little cold water
3/4 cup dry bread crumbs
2 tablespoons peanut oil
2 tablespoons (1/4 stick) unsalted butter
1/2 cup Fond de Veau [veal stock] or water
Juice of 1/2 lemon

1. Put the scallops of veal between sheets of oiled parchment paper,
and flatten them with the side of a cleaver to a thickness of about
1/4 inch. Each scallop should be about 4 inches by 5 inches.
2. Put a slice of cheese over one end of each scallop, then put a slice
of ham on each slice of cheese, then a slice of cheese on each slice
of ham. Fold the exposed end of each scallop over the top slice of
cheese. Season the veal with salt and pepper. Then sprinkle the
veal with the flour, top and bottom.
3. Brush the veal with the beaten egg, top and bottom. Then sprinkle
the veal with the bread crumbs. Press the bread crumbs into the
surface of the meat.
4. Preheat the oven to 275 degrees [F].
5. In an ovenproof skillet large enough to hold the 8 scallops, heat the
oil and butter. Over medium heat, sauté the scallops on both sides
until they are golden brown – about 3 minutes on each side.
6. Add the Fond de Veau (or water) and lemon juice to the skillet.
Cover the skillet with aluminum foil, or with a tight-fitting lid, and
put it in the preheated oven for 30 minutes. Put the scallops on
serving plates. Strain the cooking juices through a fine sieve.
Serve immediately, with the cooking juices.
