Veal Schnitzel With Herb and Cheese Crust

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 10 mins

This is a variation on a recipe my mum used to make when I was growing up. It is so comforting and relatively easy to put together. I serve it with mashed potatoes and green peas and beans. She used to serve it with tinned mushrooms in a butter sauce heated up slowly. I however think it would be better with a creamy fresh mushroom sauce. I cannot post the recipe as yet, because it is still a work in progress. This recipe is quite forgiving, you could use chicken breasts or even pork steaks if you preferred, but you would have to change the cooking time appropriately.

Lovely flavor from the Parsley & Parmesan. I didn't double coat it nor use an egg and the panko stuck enough to give a lovely finish. I use Olive "No oil" spray and it is very good - allows some extra flavor but as said no oil.

Great schnitzel recipe, I liked the added parmesan..a nice change using panko instead of breadcrumbs. Thanks for sharing.
