Dolores submitted this recipe to Better Homes & Gardens Recipe Contest in 1964, following is the letter that accompanied this recipe:
"My husband and I, being of German descent, naturally inherited our taste for old-time wiener schnitzel. However (not trying to 'gild the lily'), several years ago when corn flakes were obtained by rolling out the corn flakes by hand, I tried breading our veal cutlets in this way -- and the slightly sweet flavor was enjoyed. Then, in order to be sure the breaded cutlets were thoroughly cooked, and at the same time making a fancier dish, I prepared (very time-consuming task) a white sauce to which I added either fresh mushrooms, sauteed, or from a can. This mixture was poured over the veal cutlets in the iron skillet in which they were fried, and then removed to the oven for baking. What a long, hard route I took for many years to arrive at the same delicious meat dish now made with 'convenience ingredients'!"
