Wiener Schnitzel

Wiener Schnitzel

Let's start with the important question here : what is a Wiener Schnitzel? Nothing simpler, it's a thin cut of meat, breaded and fried until golden and crispy. Usually served with steamed potatoes and lemon. People are traditionnally using veal but I used turkey because why not? It's also delicious with chicken.

This so soooo good. Literally takes 2 minutes to make, 3 minutes to fry, it's perfect. I loveeee eating this with sauerkraut and mustard, might be a bit weird but I promise it's delicious.

Wiener Schnitzel (serves 2) :

  • 2 very thin turkey cutlets
  • 30-40g (1/4 cup) flour
  • 1 egg
  • 50g breadcrumbs
  • Salt and pepper
  • Frying oil

Prep 3 bowls : one with flour + salt and pepper, one with beaten egg and one with the breadcrumb.

Heat 3-4cm of oil in a pan. If the meat touches the bottom of the pan, it'll be crispier than deep fried.

To check if the oil is hot enough, add a bit of breadcrumbs in : if it bubbles nicely, you're good to go.

Dip the cutlet in flour, cover it on both sides.

Dip the floured cutlet in beaten egg then cover it with breadcrumbs.

Fry it 1 to 2 minutes on each side.

Put it on paper towel and repeat with the second cutlet.

Serve with a drizzle of fresh lemon juice!
