Jägerschnitzel / Jaeger Schnitzel Recipe


Recommended Posts


(Cutlet w/ Mushroom Cream Sauce)


This Jaeger Schnitzel recipe is all about the delicious creamy mushroom gravy or sauce. Literary translated as “Hunter cutlet”, this variation adds the moist and rich flavor of a white wine cream sauce with mushrooms and onions.

The cutlet itself varies depending on where you order it. Sometimes it will be a veal Wiener Schnitzel with the gravy, and sometimes it will be a natural cutlet (no breading). This recipe uses floured cutlets, but feel free to substitute the Wiener Schnitzel recipe, if you prefer a breaded cutlet.

With the sauce already on hand, SpaetzleSemmelknoedel, or Serviettenknoedel will make for an excellent side with your Jaeger Schnitzel.

For a simpler, if less traditional, preparation of the sauce, feel free to use a mushroom soup, mushroom pasta sauce, or mushroom gravy mix. Heh, we don't always have time to do everything from scratch. :)
