Today is:

NATIONAL WIENER SCHNITZEL DAY

On September 9th, celebrate a traditional Austrian dish with National Wiener Schnitzel Day. This breaded recipe is made with veal.

A law in Austria requires this dish to made strictly with veal. Chefs make Wiener Schnitzel by tenderizing a thin slice of veal and then lightly salting and breading it. It is then deep-fried in clarified butter. The term “Wiener Schnitzel” was first used in the early 1830s, though similar recipes appear earlier.

Wiener Schnitzel is traditionally served with lettuce salad, cucumber salad, or potato salad. Some people serve it with parsley potatoes. A slice of lemon may also be served with the schnitzel. Rice, roasted or mashed potatoes and French fries have also become popular side dishes to Wiener Schnitzel lately.

Variations of the dish exist in many cultures throughout the world including making it with pork rather than the traditional veal. Sometimes, restaurants offer Wiener Schnitzel as a sandwich. Layed with lettuce or cucumber slaw and a sauce on a pretzel bun, the sandwich makes for a satisfying meal. Add a side of spaetzle for the full complement of flavors. 

I, myself, couldn't imagine **** schnitzel without a side of spaetle. You?
