1. Whisk the eggs and milk together in a medium shallow pan. Arrange the flour and breadcrumbs each in separate shallow pans. Season the turkey with salt and pepper. Have a plate ready to transfer the breaded turkey scaloppine. Dredge turkey in the flour. Shake off any excess flour. Then dip turkey in to the egg mixture. Finally dip turkey into the breadcrumbs, coating completely and pressing the breadcrumbs firmly to the turkey. Transfer to a plate and repeat with remaining pieces of turkey.
2. Heat the butter and vegetable oil in a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. When the butter begins to foam, add the breaded turkey scaloppini to the pan. Don’t overcrowd the pan if you have to cook in batches. Reduce the heat to medium and cook the turkey 4 minutes per side or until turkey is cooked through. Remove from heat and drain on paper towel. Let cool for 10 minutes before assembling the sandwich.Assembly
