One would say that this type of schnitzel comes from Netherlands but it was actually invented in the Czech lands. So why Dutch? Well, 1/3 of this classic dish contains of delicious Gouda cheese. You can eat it anywhere from kindergarden canteens to upscale restaurants in the Czech Republic. And now even in your homes.
For 8 schnitzels (slang. holandaks), you’ll need:
600 g / 1,3 lbs ground pork belly
1/2 cup of cold milk
300 g / 0,7 lbs grated Gouda cheese
1 handful parsley
1 cup flour
1 cup breadcrumbs
salt and pepper
Put the ground meat in a bowl together with milk and mix it well until the mixture is nice and smooth. Add cheese, parsley, salt and pepper and mix well again. Make burger-size patties. Refrigerate them for a while. Prepare three bowls (one for flour, one for eggs and one for breadcrumbs). Beat the eggs with salt and pepper. Bread the patties in flour, then dip them in the eggs and then cover them with the breadcrumbs properly from all sides. Pan fry or deep fry them until golden. Serve with your favorite mash or boiled potatoes.
