Watch how to make this recipe.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F.

Using a sharp thin knife, cut a slit into the flesh side of the veal chop almost to the bone. With your hand placing pressure on the top of the chop, move the knife in a slicing motion to form a 3-inch pocket in the chop. Cover the chop with a piece of plastic wrap. Using the flat side of a meat mallet or a small heavy skillet, gently pound the chop until it is about 1/3 inch thick. Remove the plastic wrap and discard. Stuff one piece of the fontina cheese into the pocket and close the meat around it. On one side of the chop, place 3 small sage leaves on the meat. Cover the sage leaves with 2 pieces of cheese and follow that with 2 pieces of prosciutto. Turn over the chop and repeat on the other side.

Place the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs in 3 separate shallow dishes and season each of them with 1/4 teaspoon of the salt. Season the flour with the pepper. Dredge both sides of the prosciutto-wrapped veal chop in the flour and shake off the excess. Then place the chop into the egg, followed by the panko, packing the breadcrumbs on to the chop to help them stick.

In a medium skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add the breaded chop and cook until the breadcrumbs on the first side are golden brown, about 2 minutes. Using tongs or a spatula, carefully flip the chop and continue to cook until the other side is golden brown as well. Remove the chop to a baking tray and roast in the oven until cooked to 155 degrees F, 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the veal to rest for 5 minutes before serving.

Serve topped with Parmesan shavings and fried sage along with grilled lemon on the side if desired.
