DIRECTIONS

Mix thoroughly beef, eggs, Romano cheese, 1/2 cup bread crumbs, garlic, parsley, salt, pepper. Shape into oblongs 2 inches by 1 inch.

Thread 12 8-inch skewers, alternating meat, bread squares, mozzarella, prosciutto, cut in 1-inch squares; reserve.

Beat eggs thoroughly in deep oblong dish. Place flour, bread crumbs at opposite ends of large flat board. Dip skewers in flour, egg, bread crumbs, in that order. Fry 5 minutes on each side in extremely hot oil. Serve on skewers.
