Passover Mushroom Schnitzel

Total Time
Prep 15 mins

These are good for lunch, as a snack or as breakfast on a matza. Of course they can be made with flour too. I usually make a bunch and freeze them.

Had a Seder (meat) and there were vegetarians also, so I thought this would be a nice entre. They loved it! (I made the full recipe and my two veggies had their fill, with the carniverous finishing it off). Will definately make this again. I read the studentchef review, and cooked the mushrooms till they were getting just a bit dry,there was no trouble holding them together, worked perfectly.

Since my family eats mushroom in one way or another, I just had to make this for everyone. It turned out really great. I did, however had to add use a half a cup of matzo meal in order for the mixture to hold.
