Ingredients

Cutlets
2 pork cutlets
1/4 lb fully cooked smoked ham or Canadian bacon
2 eggs
1/4 cup pickled peas
oil for frying
butter
salt to taste

Coating the cutlets
all-purpose flour

Instructions

Dice the fully cooked smoked ham or Canadian bacon. Melt the butter in a pan and add the ham and peas. Warm the mixture and add the eggs. Allow the mixture to set.

Tenderize the cutlets and season them with salt. Put the prepared mixture on a half of each slice of the meat. Fold the empty half of the meat over the other half with the mixture and secure the edges of the meat together with wooden toothpicks.

Coat the stuffed cutlets in the flour, then in the whisked egg seasoned with salt, and then in the plain breadcrumbs. Fry the cutlets in the oil. Remove the toothpicks and cut the prepared cutlets in half before serving. Serve with potatoes.
