    My husband enjoyed this simple dish. What an easy veal dish.

    To add extra, subtle layers of flavor, I added celery salt to the beaten eggs, and toasted onion & garlic powder to the bread crumbs.

    This dish is actualy not German but Austrian. The veal can be substituted by pork, chicken or turkey

    This looks very similar to what a true German friend makes for us. My mouth is watering, I can't wait to make it myself.
