You will need
1 ⅔ lb. cabbage leaves
3 oz. ham
3 tablespoons butter
1 cup milk
3 oz. white bread with crusts trimmed and cut into long strips
little MSG (monosodium glutamate) (optional)
1 egg, mixed with 1 cup milk
little bread crumbs
butter or vegetable oil
1 ¼ cups Béchamel sauce
4 carrots, glazed
4 small-sized tomatoes
pickled red cabbage
½ cup green peas
Slice both cabbage and ham in long strips. Chop the onions. Sauté them in butter. Add the milk, cover and simmer over low heat.
When vegetables are tender, turn off heat and cool. Add the bread, 1 egg, salt, pepper and MSG. Form 2 patties per person.
Dip the patties in the beaten egg and then in the bread crumbs twice. Heat vegetable oil and butter in a frying pan and brown them over medium heat. Lower heat, cover and cook, taking care not to burn.
Arrange the schnitzel with tomatoes, grazed [SIC] carrots, pickled red cabbage and green peas. Serve with hot Béchamel sauce.
