Pounding the Schnitzel

There is no one who enjoys a good euphemism for self gratification more than me. I was in Las Vegas years ago watching a George Carlin show and the pony tailed word master went on a five minute rant about thinly veiled terms for pleasuring oneself.  Pounding the Schnitzel may not have been on the list but my favorite, by far, was Waxing the Dolphin!

So, continuing with today’s Oktoberest theme, I offer up this tried and true recipe for fail-safe schnitzel from the old days in Kitchener-Waterloo.

Take your veal, pork, chicken, turkey (whatever) cutlet, place it between two layers of wax paper..flatten it to no more than a quarter of inch any way you like. Use a rolling pin, bottom of a small frying pan, wooden muddler.

  1. Dredge the flattened cutlet in flour that’s been seasoned with a little salt and pepper.
  2. Dip it in a beaten egg wash (just whites is fine too).
  3. Recoat in a mixture of dried bread crumbs, garlic powder and grated Parmesan cheese.
  4. Pan fry on the stove top in a little butter and oil until golden brown. (watch it doesn’t burn)
  5. Serve immediately..or keep it crisp and warm in a preheated 250 degree oven. Make sure you put a lemon wedge on the plate.

Guten appetit!
