Wienerschnitzel

Wienerschnitzel“Many people think Wienerschnitzel is a German dish, but it originated in Austria. “Wiener” is Viennese  for Vienna, Austria.  Typically it is served with a slice of lemon, sautéed apples, potatoes of some kind, like buttered potatoes with parsley or warm or cold potato salad and a vegetable. This is my own Wienerschnitzel version. “Das ist lecker!”  Enjoy!”

Servings:  4

INGREDIENTS:

WIENERSCHNITZEL:
1/2 pound veal cutlets
1/2 cup flour
1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese
2 eggs
1 teaspoon chopped parsley
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup plain bread crumbs
6 tablespoons butter
4 slices lemons
GRAVY:
4 tablespoons butter

1. In medium bowl, mix together the flour, grated cheese, eggs, parsley salt, pepper, nutmeg, and milk.
2. Place bread crumbs in another bowl.
3. Dip each cutlet into the egg mixture, then the bread crumbs. Press the bread crumbs into the cutlet to coat.

5. Refrigerate the cutlets for at least one hour or overnight.
