Transylvania Pork Schnitzel

Shirley Murtagh


There is nothing more delicious than a schnitzel of pork, chicken, or veal. So very tender and juicy.
The Transylvania Club of Kitchener Ontario claims their secret is the mixture of day old bread crumbs purchased at local bakeries , from croissants to rye bread.
This recipe is from the "Company's Coming Cookbook, Cooking at Home" by Jean Pare. I serve my schnitzels with mashed potatoes, green beans or petite peas.
