Escalope means a thin slice of white meat. If taken from fillet, veal escalopes are tender and lean.  They are usually oval in shape, are flattened before being lightly fried or sauteed. They can be slightly dry and lacking in flavour, so are often cooked in sauce, with cream or mushrooms. The classic method of preparing escalopes is to coat them with breadcrumbs.
