So Jord and I are full on OBSESSED with making schnitzel now guys. We are hooked after I had some at a local restaurant. But Jordan was bummed because it wasn’t gluten-free and he couldn’t try it.

I am shook over how good this turned out. And how easy it is to make at home. Plus it’s still super flavorful and and tasty even though it’s healthier than the usual schnitzel recipe. When we were making it, our entire kitchen smelled so good and our stomachs were growling. The second this came out of the oven, we went nuts eating it over the pan and eventually plated it like civilized humans.

I have a feeling you guys are going to go crazy over this recipe. It is definitely one you will want to save and make over and over again.
