Schnitzelwecken {Schnitzel on a Bun} for #SundaySupper Global Street Food

Happy Sunday, friends!  Are you ready for this week's #SundaySupper theme? The theme this week is Global Street Food.  You know, food you pick-up from a food cart, food truck, food booth,  bakery, or butcher; you eat it in between running errands, or taking a break from sightseeing.  It is readily available and just delicious. In Portland {PDX} street food is around us where ever we are.  There is the Tamale man walking down the street announcing the delicious merchandise {tamales}, food carts pods are in every single neighborhood and some have more than one pod, it is the food many eat for their lunch break and the options are basically endless.

When we go home to Germany there is street food also all around us.  There is the Fleischkaesewecken from the butcher {this is always Ron's very first meal when arriving}, Bretzeln, Schupfnudeln {potato noodles with Sauerkraut}, Wurstwecken {Bratwurst on a bun}, Currywurst, Doener, and much more.  I am so super excited to be co-hosting today's #SundaySupper event with my friend Heather a.k.a. girlichef.  This has been so much fun....thank you :)

For the Global Street Food party I bring the Schnitzelwecken or Schnitzel on a Bun some even call it a Schnitzelwich. Yes, you can eat Schnitzel on a bun and it is super delicious.  It is perfect warm, as well as cold;  it packs well for a picnic, or pot luck.  It really is delicious...

Schnitzelwecken {Schnitzel on a Bun}
  • 3 small Baguettes {individual size}
  • 6 Pork Cutlets; pounded flat prior to use with a meat mallet {my butcher did that for me}
  • 1/2 C Matzo Meal {you can use regular breadcrumbs; make sure to read the label to avoid milk}
  • 1/4 C Flour
  • 2 Eggs
  • Salt, Peper, and Paprika to taste

  • Pinch of salt
  • App. 12 leaves of Lettuce
* You will need three large plates, and one deep larger bowl for dredging the meat

  1. Rub meat with salt, pepper & paprika
  2. Pour flour along with salt, pepper & paprika onto a large plate; spread it out evenly
  3. Break eggs into the deep bowl and mix it well {this is for dipping the meat in egg}

  8. Set aside onto the third plate.
  9. Repeat step 5 - 8 until all the meat has been breaded.
  10. In deep frying pan {I use a cast iron} heat up the oil; when hot place one {important just one} cutlet into the pan.  Turning it over when golden. 
  11. When both sides are golden, remove from pan then place on the prepared baking pan and slide in the oven.
  12. Repeat step 10-11 until all Schnitzel's have been fried up
  13. Mix the spread by combining the Mayonaise, Horseradish Sauce, Lemon Juice,  and a pinch of salt
