Weiner Schnitzle

Kalbfleisch ist wunderbar! !!! Veal is wonderful - AND - very expensive, but if you can afford to treat yourself once or twice a year, do it!! Serve on a hoagie roll, or with spaetzle (dumplings or German noodles.)


4 veal cutlets, about 6-ounces each
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 egg, beaten
1/4 cup dry bread crumbs
Juice of 1 small lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
Oil for frying


Pound veal to about 1/4-inch thick. Pat dry.
Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Place flour and
bread crumbs on individual plates or waxed
paper. Dip the cutlets first into the flour,
then the beaten egg and finally, the bread
crumbs. Place on baking rack and set in
refrigerator for 15 to 30 minutes. This helps
the coating adhere when frying.

Pour enough oil into a large heavy skillet to
come about 1/4-inch up the sides. Heat over
medium-high. When oil is hot, add veal cutlets,
in batches of 2 if necessary, do not to crowd
the pan. Fry until golden brown, about 4
minutes per side, turning once. Place on
platter, sprinkle with lemon juice and keep

German Noodle Dumplings Spaetzle

Spaetzle is a very popular side dish in Germany which is surprisingly almost never offered in the U.S. A delicious part of a evening's hearty meal, it pairs well with any meat, but is especially nice with sauerbraten and/or a veal dish. While spaetzle looks more like scrambled noodles, the preparations are similar to those of dumplings. This recipe is an easy one.


2 eggs, beaten
1/4 cup milk
1 cup flour
1/2 teaspoon salt black pepper

We're hoping you know how to prepare and cook the dough.
