The other night we were watching Masterchef, and the boy was practically salivating over the schnitzel challenge. I pretty much snuffed at him over the simplicity of making a good schnitzel and he said “Yeah well you never make them!” And I realised, that is true! We used to eat them all the time but since I had to cut dairy out we stopped buying the premade ones from the supermarket because they all contain dairy and it hasnt occured to me for at least 2 years to crumb my own.
So I promised the boy I would and I finally came good on my promise.
I do get a little caught up sometimes in trying to find new and exciting things to make and eat that I forget the good ol classics! This is the kind of stuff we were both raised on and while my testing out new recipes is great, I often forget to go back and make things that we both really liked. I will try and have to remember just how much the boy likes his schnitzel and add it to the rotation much more often!
I combined some rosemary, chives, cashews, salt and pepper and wholegrain bread to get my crumb and it was a good combination – the cashews gave it just that extra amount of crunch.
