messicani (di vitello)

/mehs-see-KAH-nee (dee vee-TEHL-loh)/

"Mexicans." Veal birds. Thin slices of veal rolled around a filling of crumbled sausage or minced (US: ground) meat bound with egg and breadcrumbs, flavoured with cheese or spices or with added Marsala. They may be roasted on a spit or braised in wine and are called "Mexicans" as they end up looking rather like a row of Mexican tortillas.
