Schnitzel on Spätzle!!!! Das ist gut!!!
My camera was running low on battery,
so just a couple of pics.
I stole the idea for this meal from
"Diners, Drive-ins & Dives".
Schnitzel on Spätzle.
Schnitzel is a term in Germany, that us southern folks like to call chicken fried.
They both mean some kind of meat that is breaded and fried.
Spätzle is a small noodle that you shove through a colander, to form little nuggets.
I got 3 chicken breasts and pounded them thin with the back of my ladle. I almost
bought a meat tenderizing hammer, but they wanted $14.
My ladle did the trick just fine.
My dredging station was flour/eggs/panko bread crumbs in that order.
Then you fry these things until they are
golden brown and crispy.
The Spätzle is basically normal pasta dough, but you push it thru a colander or slotted spoon
held over a pot of boiling water. The dough drops off in these little nuggets, and you
boil them for just a few minutes. Then into a saucepan with butter, lemon and chives to give
them a little color and more flavor.
I completed the meal with roasted brussels sprouts,
and a couple of St. Pauli Girls.
MAN, was this good!!!
