•salt, ground pepper
•flour, breadcrumbs
•2 whole eggs
•oil to deep fry
•1 lemon
•cranberry sauce (optional)

Directions:
Directions:
Prepare 3 deep plates. Put flour in one, beaten eggs in another and breadcrumbs in the third. The meat is dipped in that same order. Start with moderate amounts; you can always top up quantities as needed.

The meat slices are tenderized and rendered thinner with a meat mallet. The schnitzel fries at high temperature in just 2-3 minutes. The escallops are hammered thin to ensure the meat is cooked through when the outside is crispy.

Season with ground pepper.

Put a schnitzel on the plate with flour, cover both sides and shake off excess flour. Then dip it in the egg, making sure schnitzel is covered with egg. Lift, let excess egg drop off, and lay it in the breadcrumbs. Make sure schnitzel’s surface is coated with breadcrumbs. Again, lift it off plate and shake a little so loose crumbs fall off.

Put oil in a large frying pan 1/2-inch deep and heat. Schnitzels will swim which is deep frying. Get the oil hot enough that the schnitzel sizzles immediately when you put it in. When it has the desired color, turn it.

When cooked, place on paper towels to soak fat from schnitzel. Salt the schnitzel now if you haven’t done so before. It is ready to serve.

Personal Notes:
There are so many things you can do with schnitzel to keep it fresh and to keep from getting tired of it. Things like Jaggar Schnitzel (schnitzel covered in brown and mushrooms) and you can serve it with so many different things from potatoes to almost any type of vegetable, even french fries (mix the fries with the gravy's of the schnitzel you decide to make). Have fun with your schnitzel and I hope you enjoy it!
