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 would bake it in the oven with some cheese on top. We think this is delicious. It’s traditionally served with a potato salad but it tastes awesome with fried potatoes too. Happy Cooking!
