Milanese In Advance

I am making a dish for twelve people that I guess you could call tuna Milanese (Bittman calls it tuna veal style). I will use a typical bound breading.

I would like to bread the cutlets in five hours in advance. My ideas are:

1.) Bread them and put them in the refrigerator on a wire rack covered loosely with wax paper.

2.) Bread them and put them in a large tray on a bed of ½ inch of bread crumbs and cover with another ½ inch of bread crumbs that I think will absorb any moisture. Put the tray in the refrigerator covered loosely with wax paper.

OR ???

Does anyone have any opinion on how to best proceed.

  1. Not sure I can help, but I've personally found that all my breaded items have the best results if I bread, then place on a plate, cookie sheet, etc uncovered in the fridge for 1 hour. I've tried longer times & loosely covering with less successful results. This is just what works best for me. Breaded then chilled uncovered for 1 hour.
