Now, I know Albert was a vegetarian, but I think he would understand us saluting him on his birthday, March 14 of 1879, with a wienerschnitzel recipe.Â Don’t you?Â This easy German recipe is fantastic & the veal can be substituted for pork chops if needed.Â Enjoy!
- 1.5 pounds veal cutlets
- 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
- 3 tablespoons Parmesan cheese, grated
- 2 eggs
- 1 teaspoon parsley
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon ginger
- 1 pinch nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 cup bread crumbs
- 6 tablespoons butter
- 4 slices lemon
Place each veal cutlet between two pieces if plastic wrap, you’re going to let any aggression of the day out on these babies.Â Pound each cutlet with the flat side of a meat mallet until they are about 1/4 inchÂ thick.
Dip each cutlet into flour to coat.
In a medium bowl- stir together Parmesan, eggs, parsley, salt, pepper, nutmeg & milk.Â Place bread crumbs on a plate.
Dip each cutlet into the egg mixture and dredge in crumbs.Â Place coated cutlet in frig for at least one hour, can prepare overnight.
In a large skillet- melt butter over medium.Â Cook the breaded cutlets until browned on each side, about 3 minutes per side.Â Remove to a serving platter and pour pan juices (my personal favorite part) over cutlets.Â Garnish will lemon & you’re ready to serve!
A quote from the man being toasted today, Albert Einstein on taking time with your kisses:
“Any man who can drive safely while kissing a pretty girl is simply not giving the kiss the attention it deserves.”
Too true, Albert.Â Too true.
