On a Budget: Mozzarella Schnitzels

When we eat the typical Dutch meal of potatoes, veggies and, in most households, meat, we sometimes buy a meat replacement. But those are just as expensive as regular meat and not something we do often. Mostly only when they are on sale. Therefore I was really curious when I saw this recipe on 24-kitchen to make your own mozzarella schnitzels. It is an really easy side dish to make and a lot cheaper than buying the pre made stuff. As you can see we served them alongside a typical Dutch combination of potatoes, veggies and apple sauce.

Mozzarella Schnitzels: (serves 2)
- 100 gr mozzarella
- 2 eggs
- bread crumbs
- sunflower oil
- salt and pepper

Cut the mozzarella into slices. In 1 deep plate beat 2 eggs, with some salt, pepper, or other spices of choice. Make some bread crumbs in the food processor and place those in another deep plate. Now coat a piece of mozzarella with egg and then with bread crumbs. Do this 2 times. Place the slice on a plate and repeat with the other slices.

Heat some sunflower oil in a pan and fry the slices about 2 minutes. Place them on some kitchen towel to absorb the extra moist and serve them alongside your potatoes and veggies. But they would also be great alongside a big salad.
