If you’re a “meat and potatoes” kind of person, it can feel sometimes like there aren’t a lot of exciting meal variations out there for you. If Germany and Austria ave anything to say about it, however, than that’s completely untrue! Schnitzel is a traditional German and Austrian dish made most often from thinly pounded and breaded chicken or pork, usually served with potatoes or a simple but delicious pasta called spaetzel. The best part of schnitzel, however, is that you can eat it plain or mix it up with all kinds of variations and sauces so that it suits your tastes no matter what they are!
Check out these 15 delicious schnitzel recipes that will have you planning dinner for the next two weeks.
