11:45 pm
a classic east german dish but for visitors from the west it was also a source of confusion instead of an estimate with mushrooms it was made with a sausage. in their. twenty's in germany had to be inventive with the jaeger schnitzel for instance where veal a scalloped is a high quality product is normally used we had to use pork. but that was also hard to come by so often so some housewives simply used a sausage was a western life i lost it ya forced hillary clinton's been in restaurant specializes in dishes that her favorites in east germany has east german version of excel and his a slice of chefs in a sausage coated with flour one egg and bread crumbs that in fried golden in carrot find. the fun it was the original recipe for the source too. if. i cook the onions in butter 3 and then i peeled tomatoes and catch up personally i
