Schnitzel burger with potato wedges

Sometimes I’m in the mood for really greasy food. It usually occurs when I’ve had lots of wine to drink the night before… strange isn’t it?! This happened to me on Friday, all I could think about was comfort food with melted cheese. So instead of getting a way too greasy take away I made my own junk food, and it hit the spot. 🙂

Schnitzel burger with potato wedges, 2 portions

2 pork escalopes

100 ml natural breadcrumbs

2 eggs

2 seeded large burger buns

2 slices plastic cheese

Swedish pickled red pepper

6 large Maris Piper potatoes

olive oil

Cajun spice

Start by cutting the potatoes into wedges. I kept the skin on. Then pour some olive oil onto a roasting dish, place the potatoes in it and pour over a little bit more oil, then season with the Cajun spice and flip them around a bit so that all wedges are coated in oil and seasoning. Place in an 175-200 degree oven (depending on the oven) for about 40 minutes, Check on them a few times and flip them around a bit. When they have been in the oven for 30 minutes or so and have started to soften, it is time to start cooking the meat. Beat the eggs in a bowl and dip the pork in the beaten eggs, then coat it in breadcrumbs. Fry in butter in a frying pan until the meat is cooked through and the outside is crisp. Place a slice of plastic cheese on each schnitzel and let it melt. Toast the burger buns and serve with the pickled sliced peppers (I use a Swedish pepper salad, but you can buy pickled peppers here and just slice them). Some ketchup and mayo is perfect to dip the spicy wedges in. Yum!
