Recently I had a conversation with a friend about schnitzels. It was more like a monologue, because he was the one telling me about his great desire for eating them and I was just listening.
The problem he had was his lack of experience with making them 🙂
I was surprised. I do not know why but I thought that every Pole knows how to make a schnitzel.
I was wrong 🙂
The following recipe is with a special dedication to my friend 😉
Ingredients for schnitzels.
- 500 g of minced turkey meat
- 1 spoon of Dijon mustard
- 1 medium-sized red onion
- 2 rolls
- 1 tablespoon of corn starch
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
- 1 tablespoon of finely chopped parsley
- 1/2 cup of bread crumbs
- sunflower oil or lard for frying
- 1 egg
How to prepare turkey schnitzels.
Soak the rolls in water. Once soft, squeeze out the water. Put the meat along with finely chopped onion, the rolls, an egg, salt, pepper, flour, mustard and parsley in a bowl. Mix it through. Form flattened balls of medium size (about 5-6 cm in diameter). Toss in the breadcrumbs. Fry over medium heat until they become light brown.
Good to know when making schnitzels.
Instead of turkey meat you can use beef or pork. I usually mix these two types of meat together, because I do not like schnitzels only with pork 🙂
