The cuisine of Central Europe doesn’t always get the praise it deserves, so today we want to heap upon one of its sandwiches, which ranks up there with the world’s best: the schnitzel sandwich, or schnitzelwich, if you will. Schnitzel itself—a thin meat cutlet of pork, veal or chicken breaded and fried—is popular throughout Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria and beyond. Slim and uniformly fried, it's ideal for stacking between bread.
The filling. The best schnitzel is fresh schnitzel, piping hot, golden brown and crisp all over. From that simple base, any number of additions are fair game, from a simple swipe of mayo to red pepper spreads, caramelized onions, you name it.
