Schnitzel and Apples

March 20, 2012

When I think of home one thing that comes to my mind is my mom’s incredibly delicious food. Mom’s definitely have a special gift that lets them be amazing cooks. One of my favorite meals in Wiener Schnitzel (Viennese Schnitzel) which is probably the most Austrian thing you can have. We don’t have it that often since it’s first of all not the healthiest thing (it’s deep fried) and it tends to be something people eat at special occasions only.

Since I am only a week away from indulging in my mom’s delicious food and am certainly not going to start deep-frying my food in my small Uni kitchen, I decided to recreate my moms Schnitzel, but at the same time keep things as healthy as possible.

I used a turkey breast, cut it into 3 equal slices. Then I covered it in an egg mix and rolled it in breadcrumbs. The whole thing was then transferred to the preheated oven (170°C) and cooked for about 30 minutes.

The meat may be slightly drier than it would be if it were deep-fried but it’s certainly healthier this way. And what better to enjoy it with than a huge green salad and crispy, home-made sweet potato fries?

Perry Court Farm

As I mentioned yesterday I spent the night at my sister’s flat last week. Apart from the fun we have when we’re together it’s always great to see her because I usually discover a new-to-me snack or food when I’m at her flat. She was the one who told me about the Graze Box and I have since then been a major fan.

Last week though, I found a huge box of dried apples in her kitchen and she was kind enough to send me back to Uni with 2 small bags to taste test.

I’ve already mentioned several times that I’m constantly on the lookout for healthy snacks and so I was pleased to try out these air dried apple crisps. The Perry Court Farm offers sweet and tangy air dried apple crisps as well dried pear crisps. I’ve already dried both apple flavors and was blown away by their crispiness.

The crisps look like actual chips but are so much better and healthier than potato chips and make the perfect snack for adults and children. If I weren’t flying home in a couple of days I would have already ordered a box of crisps days ago, but sadly that will have to wait until I’m back at the end of April.

Just thought I’d let you guys (especially my UK readers) know about these delicious crisps in case you were looking for a new snack idea.

Gotta go, my still empty suitcase wants to be packed 🙂

    Just stumbled upon your blog, so glad to find it! Love all your snacks, they look delicious!! I haven’t heard of some of them. And I happen to love schnitzel, but it’s definitely best for special occasions. 🙂 I live in Salt Lake, and there is an awesome German restaurant that has lots of yummy dishes like that. Yours looks fantastic, I’ll have to try it!
