Turkey Schnitzel

Thought I would share a recipe today. My family Love Schnitzel, a German dish. I had to work on making it Healthier for us.

Turkey Schnitzel.
1 pkg of Butterball Turkey Cutlets
1/4 cup Egg beater with yolk
1/4 cup Flour
1 tsp My Salt and Pepper mix**
1/4 cup Progresso Bread Crumbs-Plain
Olive oil for Sauteing
You will need Three dishes for Flour, egg, and Bread crumb dipping ,a mallet or rolling pin, a cutting board and A large skillet and a couple wired cooling rack.

Remove the Cutlets ,place them on a board and hit them with the mallet til about 1/4 inch thick. set aside
Put Flour and Salt mixture in one Dish-Mix together
Put the egg beater in one dish or wide mouth bowl.
Put Bread crumbs in last dish
dredge the Cutlet in the Flour, then dip in egg beater, lastly put in crumbs and pat both sides.Put each cutlet on the Drying rack a let sit. Repeat til all cutlets are done(I find it easier to use a tong when dipping the Cutlets)

Heat pan on Med high heat. Once heated Add Olive oil. Start with about 3 Tablespoons (You can add more if needed). it is important that you not add the oil until the pan is heated, this prevents the Cutlets Sticking to the pan.
Add Cutlets, leave some space between them. the cooking time is only about 2 to 3 minutes per side,Until they are golden brown. lay them on a clean Wirer cooling rack when done ( you can put the rack in a cookie sheet and place in a 150 fh degree oven to keep warm.)

I usually serve it with Wide egg noodles(yolk free). Sometime I will make a mushroom sauce to top it with. Enjoy. Let me know how you liked it.

Home Cooking Healthy Recipes

When I was growing up my mother cooked Dinner every day. After school the Family sat down together and enjoyed a Home Cooked meal. The time period was the 1950s though 1960s. A time when most mothers were at home and the hustle and bustle wasn't there. I remember having what we called comfort food as well as meat and potatoes. When we moved to Rochester New York Mom like having Theme nights. It could be Italian, Mexican, or Oriental. She began to learn to cook different foods. It was mostly due to us kids,like many today, got bored with the same old thing. My Love of foods began as a kid but grew as an Adult.My travels around the States and the World enticed my taste buds. Hence my Love of International foods grew. It seem like every place we lived I took a college class to learn cooking their way.
In today's world I have had to learn to make them healthier. My Food Testing Team (My Family) has become experts food critics. Some food they request again and again. We are always having something different. If I find a new meat I will buy it and search out how to cook it. I like meals that take less than 30 minutes to make. Meal that take longer have usually a prep time of 30 minute or less. Making it still doable for dinner. Those are roast or crock-pot. This Blog is dedicated to Recipes only. I will be posting them as I develop them. There are some recipes that are from Family members who are with the Lord now. I will be posting some of them. I hope you will enjoy this blog and leave your comments on the recipes.
