Making low carb simple
- In a small bowl, mix together the Dijon mustard and mayonnaise. Set aside.
- In a shallow dish, whisk the egg with a fork. In another shallow dish, combine the parmesan cheese, almond flour, salt, pepper, thyme, onion powder, and garlic powder (for the "breading").
- Dip the cutlets in the egg, to coat on all sides. Allow the excess egg to drip off, and then completely cover and coat the cutlets, in the dry mixture.
- Melt the butter in a large frying pan, over medium-high heat.
- Place the cutlets in the pan, and cook for 4 - 5 minutes per side, until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the schnitzel to a serving dish, and cover with foil to keep warm.
Green bean fries
- Add the green beans to the same pan. Cook and stir over medium heat for 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve the turkey schnitzel and green bean fries, with the dijon mayo, lemon wedges, and capers.
A cutlet is generally referring to a specific cut of breast meat, so if you don't have cutlets you can use any boneless cut of meat you prefer. Chicken breast or pork would work well also.
Very high praise indeed! Thanks for sharing, Melissa!
