Our family was fortunate to have lived in Europe for 11 years. This is by far our two sons' all-time favorite recipe. Typically in Germany and Austria, schnitzel is served with French fries and lemon wedges-the lemon is for squeezing onto the breaded cutlets. In Europe I used veal, but now that we are back home, I find that turkey slices are a great substitute. —Sue A. Jurack
