Original Bavarian Food – Old Bavarian Schnitzel

We all know that Bavaria is a paradise for good food. The Bavarian cuisine has more to offer than dumplings and ham hocks. We found a recipe that is very popular in Bavaria: Old Bavarian Schnitzel or “altbayerisches Schnitzel” in German. It is basically a Wienerschnitzel but at the end you bake it in the oven with some cheese on top, it’s optional. We think this is delicious. It’s traditionally served with a potato salad but  fried potatoes are a delicious side dish as well. Happy Cooking!

  • Turn the meat first in egg, then in breadcrumbs.
  • Heat clarified butter in a pan.
  • Fry each schnitzel on both sides evenly until it is showing a golden brown color.
