If you want to surprise your family (or yourself) with a dish that is both delicious and uncommon, then Munich-style schnitzel is a great choice. A variation of the popular Wiener schnitzel, Munich-style schnitzel pairs perfectly with roasted or mashed potatoes and provides a filling meal. And best of all, it is simple and easy to make.


  • 4 veal cutlets
  • 4 tablespoons horseradish
  • 4 tablespoons mustard
  • 3 cups bread crumbs
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons milk
  • Salt and black pepper
  • Vegetable or canola oil


  1. Place each cutlet between two pieces of plastic wrap and pound it to desired thickness. Salt and pepper on each side.
  2. Beat the eggs and pour them into a shallow dish. Prepare two additional dishes, placing bread crumbs in the first and flour in the other one. 
  3. Take one tablespoon of horseradish and spread it across one side of the cutlet before dipping it in flour. Spread one tablespoon of mustard on the other and dip in flour. Do the same with the remaining cutlets.
  4. Dip the cutlets in eggs and in bread crumbs.
  5. Heat 1/2-inch of oil in a pan or a skillet. Fry the cutlets for a couple of minutes on each side or until golden brown.
  6. Line the fried cutlets on a paper towel to remove the excess oil.
  7. Dig in!
