Mr. Bento - April 30, 2008

To close out the month, for Wednesday, April 30, 2008, I'll be taking in my Mr. Bento:
* Tuna salad on toasted rye
* Carrots and cheese
* Pickle and tomatoes
* Kecap manis for a carrot and tomato dip
* Applesauce with maple sugar

Okay, it's been a fun ride. I've enjoyed looking at all the Mr. Bento lunches on flickr, most them really tantalizing. I hope my lunches looked as good and people have liked the moose (did you notice them?). Friday, May 2, I retire from work. I may look for something else in a year or so, but in the meantime my Mr. Bento will go into retirement with me. I'll keep looking at photos other folks post of their Mr. Bento lunches, so keep up the good work.

How to Cut Matzoh

Passover Chicken Schnitzel (Cutlet) Recipe

I got this recipe from Mama Leah's Jewish Kitchen:



4 whole chicken breasts, split and boned with skin removed
1 cup matzo meal
3 eggs
Oil (I use olive oil)
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon white pepper
2 teaspoons salt


Pound the chicken cutlets, shiny side up, between two pieces of waxed paper or plastic wrap to make them thinner.

Beat the eggs together with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt.

In another bowl, combine matzo meal with 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1/4 teaspoon white pepper, and 1 teaspoon salt. Mix well.

Dip cutlets in egg mixture and then in matzo meal mixture. Press matzo meal into the cutlets with your hands to make sure it sticks. Saute the cutlets in oil for 5 minutes on each side, until golden brown. Serve hot with tomato sauce, ketchup, mustard-dill sauce, or garlic sauce.

Makes 6-8 cutlets.
