bread crumbs and crisply fried. The best are so thin and large, they literally bend over the edge of the plate. Moreover, Wiener Schnitzel is probably the most famous of all dishes developed in Austria. It is thought to have been eaten in Vienna since the 15th Century. Wiener Schnitzel is traditionally made from thinly sliced and tenderised veal, which is then dipped into flour, eggs and breadcrumbs and fried in butter or lard. In the past, sometimes gold dust was added to the breadcrumbs in order to provide a spectacularly golden color. Wiener Schnitzel is often served in Viennese restaurants with a portion of potato salad and a slice of lemon, as well as roast potatoes and cranberry sauce .
