Stuffed Veal Skewers – Spiedini alla Siciliana Recipe 🇮🇹

Spiedini alla Siciliana is a Sicilian dish made by rolling and stuffing beef with herbs and cheese. This recipe uses veal and provolone; you can serve them on skewers with tomato sauce for dipping! They are a yummy BBQ summer treat.

Serves 6 people – 20 minutes start to finish


  • 1 1/2 lb Veal cutlets
  • 8 oz Provolone cheese
  • 3 tablespoons chopped parsley
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3/4 cup breadcrumbs


  1. Preheat grill or broiler and soak wood skewers in water to prevent burning (you can also cover ends of skewers in aluminum foil when you’re ready to cook).
  2. Place veal cutlets between two sheets of wax paper and pound them gently using a meat pounder or mallet until 1/4 inch thick.
  3. Cut veal into 2×3 inch pieces and season with salt and pepper. 
  4. Cut provolone into 1×2 inch sticks and places in the center of the veal cutlet. 
  5. Sprinkle parsley and garlic over cheese and roll up each piece of veal. Secure with skewers. 
  6. Brush veal in olive oil and sprinkle with salt and breadcrumbs. 
  7. Grill veal skewers until meat is browned and cheese is melted. 
  8. Serve with tomato dipping sauce or stacked on the skewer.
