Is’ A historic recipe of my family, as the Falsomagro TO PALERMITANA or the Roulade TO MESSINESE. Among other things, on my YouTube channel you can find both the VIDEO RECIPE falsomagro, both VIDEO RECIPE OF roulade.

In this dish we have the Beef Roll Cutlets, who already are delicious on their own, but in this case they are enriched with a very thick béchamel sauce that is put on the meat and then breaded and fried together with the schnitzel. When you cut the meat, already juicy and crunchy thanks to the Breading, comes the bechamel, creamy and soft.
