Recipe Veal Rolls with Ham and Sage
Preparation Of Ingredients
In preparing Veal Rolls with Ham and Sage, the first thing to do is to make sure you have all the necessary ingredients on hand. For this recipe you will need veal, prosciutto, and fresh sage leaves.
The veal can be purchased from your local butcher. Be sure to choose thin, tender slices to use for the rolls. The prosciutto can be thinly sliced as well, while for the sage leaves, I recommend getting them fresh from a grocery store or growing them yourself if you have a vegetable garden or garden.
Once you have gathered all the ingredients, you can proceed to prepare the rolls. Begin by spreading the veal slices out on a clean work surface. Lay a slice of prosciutto on each slice and one or two sage leaves depending on the size. Make sure the ham and sage are well distributed on the veal slice.
Wrapping Calves With Ham And Sage
Veal Rolls with Ham and Sage are a delicious main course that combines the tenderness of veal with the intense flavor of ham and sage. Preparation of this recipe requires several steps, including wrapping the calves with ham and sage.
To wrap the veal with ham and sage, start by arranging the veal slices on a work surface. Take a slice of ham and lay it on each slice of veal. Then place a sage leaf in the center of each ham slice. If you like, you can also add a slice of cheese to further enrich the flavor of the rolls.
Once you have arranged the various ingredients on the veal slices, start wrapping the rolls. Starting with the narrowest side of each slice of veal, gently roll the meat on itself, so as to enclose the ham and sage inside. Be careful not to let the filling spill out while wrapping.
Breading the Rolls
Breading is a culinary technique of coating food with a thin layer of breadcrumbs or flour before cooking it. In main courses such as veal rolls with ham and sage, the breading serves to create a crispy, golden crust that makes the dish irresistible. Here is how to bread the rolls:
1. Preparation of ingredients:
- Take thin slices of veal and pound them lightly to make them even thinner and more tender.
- Place a slice of ham and a sage leaf on each slice of veal.
- Gently roll the veal slices around the ham and sage, creating rolls.
2. Wrapping calves with ham and sage:
- Squeeze the rolls lightly to make the ham and sage adhere well.
- Proceed to dip the rolls in beaten egg to adhere the egg to the meat.
- Next, roll the rolls in the breading, pressing lightly to make the breadcrumbs adhere well to the surface of the rolls.
3. Cooking the rolls:
- Heat a frying pan with olive oil and butter.
- Once the oil and butter are hot, gently lay the rolls in the pan.
- Brown the rolls on both sides until golden brown and crispy.
Veal rolls with ham and sage are ready to be enjoyed. They are perfect as a main course to be served with side dishes of vegetables or potatoes.

Roasting is a cooking technique that gives veal roulades with ham and sage a golden, crispy crust. Before you start roasting, make sure you have properly prepared the rolls by following the recipe for veal rolls with ham and sage. Once the rolls are ready, you can proceed with roasting.
To roast the rolls, you will need a large skillet large enough to hold all the rolls without overlapping them. Heat the skillet over medium-high heat, adding a little extra virgin olive oil. Once the oil is hot, place the rolls in the pan and brown for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Roasting will allow you to seal the rolls well, preventing them from losing their internal juices during cooking.
Once the rolls have been browned on both sides, you can remove them from the pan and transfer them to a plate with paper towels to remove excess fat. This will give you less greasy and lighter rolls. Now the rolls are ready to be cooked further, as indicated in the next steps of the recipe.
Cooking Rolls In The Oven
“Cooking Rolls in the Oven.”
Once the ‘Veal Rolls with Ham and Sage’ have been prepared and breaded, it is time to proceed with the cooking. Baking is a very practical and healthy method, as it requires little oil and results in succulent and intensely flavored rolls.
To begin, preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F). Take a baking sheet and lightly oil it. Arrange the rolls on the baking sheet so that they are spaced evenly apart so that they cook evenly. If necessary, you can use toothpicks to keep the ends of the rolls closed while cooking.
After placing the roulades in the baking dish, place the dish in the oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes, or until the roulades are golden brown and well cooked. While cooking, it is advisable to turn the rolls halfway through cooking to ensure even cooking on both sides.
While the rolls are cooking in the oven, you can prepare any side dishes or sauces to serve. Once the rolls are ready, remove them from the oven and let them rest for a few minutes before serving. At this point you can present the rolls on a plate, garnishing them with fresh sage leaves and accompanying them with side dishes such as roasted potatoes or grilled vegetables.
