My Schnitzel Parisian Style Recipe I show you in this post.

The Schnitzel in egg coat is a classic dish of French cuisine.

It was first presented in Paris at the Exposition Universelle 1889.

I recommend veal schnitzel and as a side dish, parsley potatoes or potato salad.

The meat must always first in the flour, then in the egg, then in the breadcrumbs. This is the only way for the breading to stick to the meat.

Schnitzel in flour

Turn the escalopes in flour and flour evenly.

3. How to bread without Breadcrumbs


Use a wheat flour type 405 or a special flour like the Wiener Grießler.

You can also use a gluten-free flour mixture or potato flour.

Beat the eggs in a bowl with a whisk.

The more air you add to the eggs, the more fluffy the egg coating becomes.

Season eggs:

You can season three eggs with 1 tablespoon cream, 4 pinches salt and 3 pinches pepper.

I’ve already tried a variant with fresh thyme, which tastes delicious.

The addition of white truffle oil is also great, the Parisian schnitzel with truffle egg panade tastes fantastic!
