    German Schnitzel {Cutlets} Recipe German Schnitzel German Schnitzel recipe is a perfect addition to your German recipe collection. Schnitzel are really just thin cutlets and can be made from veal, pork, chicken or turkey. The cutlets are pounded until thin with a meat hammer (this will also tenderize the meat) the cutlets are then breaded and fried. It doesn’t get much easier than that, now does it. Lemon or Mushroom Sauce One of the most traditional recipes for schnitzel is for Jäger-Schnitzel or Hunter’s Schnitzel, which is served with a fantastic mushroom sauce or gravy.  This sauce is made with fresh mushrooms, sour cream butter and pan drippings. Since this was my first attempt at making schnitzel, I wanted to try it with just the lemon wedges, the juice is squeezed over the cutlets before eating, this is the most traditional way of serving schnitzel. Traditional German Food After attending the Old World Christmas Market in Elkhart Lake WI, I’ve had German schnitzel on my mind. At the market my son and I always order a pulled pork sandwich on a pretzel roll with Dusseldorf mustard. I also order a slice of apple strudel. This year my DIL ordered German potato pancakes served with applesauce. They serve German schnitzel at the Christmas market too. Since then I’ve had both on my mind and have wanted to make both.
