Oven baked veal schnitzel
Had a veal chop I needed to use up that was about 8-10 oz., on the bone, 1 in thick. There was just me for dinner. I was craving schnitzel, but too lazy to take meat off the bone and deal with frying. SO, I tried my own version of Shake & Bake - coated veal chop lightly with reduced fat mayonnaise and dipped into mixture of finely ground corn flake crumbs seasoned with parsley, s&p, garlic, and some Hungarian paprika. Coated both sides of chop and roasted on rack in preheated 425 convection oven for 25-30 min. Yum-yum! Tasted just like schnitzel with 2/3 of the work. Always looking for easy meals for one person and I will have to try this again. While veal was roasting, I also roasted some fresh asparagus with some kosher salt, EVOO and a little lemon juice.
I do this with thin veal cutlets, usually dipped in a bit of olive oil. My husband can never tell that it's baked- especially if I fool him by leaving a skillet on the stove!
Favorite side dish for this- slow cooked red cabbage. The sweetness from the apple and tart from apple cider vinegar cuts through the richness of the veal.
