Schnitzel and Spaetzel, a traditional German Dinner

Jäger Hänchen Schnitzel and Kartoffelspätzle - a Traditional German Dinner

Ry’s family is traditionally German, but somewhere along the way, they lost their traditional foods and heritage, so being a homeschooling family, we did some research, and as part of the ‘unit’ we had a traditional German food for dinner! It was a hit.

One of the great things about being an American, is it’s a great melting pot of a bunch of different cultures, foods, and beliefs; but one of the drawbacks, is how easy it is to lose your heritage and keep up with the Joneses. Not saying the old ways are perfect, or that the new ways are wrong; but it’s important to strike that balance and to learn from the past.

Jäger Hänchen Schnitzel and Kartoffelspätzle - A breaded, boneless, skinless breast of chicken, topped with a burgundy-mushroom or a creamy-mushroom sauce.
