  • In a food processor, pulse the bread into crumbs. Add the Parmesan, thyme, and lemon zest. Transfer the flavored breadcrumbs to a shallow bowl or lipped plate.

  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the eggs and milk and season with pepper.

  • Place the flour in a shallow bowl or dish. Season 1 scaloppini with salt and pepper. Dredge the scaloppini in the flour and shake off any excess, then dip it in the egg mixture; finally coat the meat evenly with the breadcrumbs. Set on a plate or piece or waxed paper. Repeat with the other scaloppini.

  • Heat 2 tablespoons butter in a medium non-stick skillet over medium-high heat. While the butter is still foaming add the breaded scaloppini and cook, swirling the skillet in a tight circle (which keeps the scaloppini moving around the skillet), until golden brown and cooked through, about 1-1/2 minutes for the first side. Turn the meat and cook for 1 minute on the second side. Transfer to a plate and cover very loosely with foil while you cook the other scaloppini. Serve with the lemon wedges.
