I am so tired and I am heading off to bed very shortly but I just wanted to get something posted. I was looking through things last night and realised that I have so many things that I have made from Sydney Food that I haven't yet blogged about. I also have a number of other things that I want to post too. It has been hard to go back to work after a couple of weeks off. Haven't been feeling well or sleeping well either so it is all just a bit of a "perfect storm" of blah at the moment.
I made this a while ago now. I couldn't get any veal at the time but my wonderful butcher gave me some wonderfully tender beef although I can't remember exactly which cut he gave me now. ***oops*** I would definitely make this again. The left overs were very good too. I served with spicy roast sweet potato and steamed broccoli & cauliflower.
Parmesan veal schnitzel with creamed potatoes
- 8 veal escallops
- 1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (I made them from wholemeal bread)
- 1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup parsley
- 2 tbsp finely chopped thyme
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- freshly ground black pepper
- 1/4 cup milk
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- Place veal escallops on a board and flatten with a mallet. Place breadcrumbs, parmesan cheese, parsley, thyme, salt and pepper in a bowl and mix well. Place milk and eggs in a bowl and beat lightly together. Place flour in a bowl.
- Dip veal first in the flour, then egg wash and finally in breadcrumb mixture. Continue until all veal is coated.
- Heat olive oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium heat. Place veal in frying pan in a single layer, being careful not to crowd, and cook for two minutes until golden brown on one side. Turn veal and cook for a further two minutes. Remove from pan and keep warm until all the veal escallops are cooked. Serve with creamed potatoes.
- 800g potatoes suitable for mashing
- 1 cup cream (I used natural yoghurt)
- 75g butter
- 1 tsp sea salt
- Place potatoes in boiling water and cook until tender.
- Remove from heat, drain and mash potatoes in saucepan.
- Beat yoghurt & butter into potatoes with a wooden spoon until smooth. Season with salt to taste.
