Pork Schnitzel Bites With Mozzarella Cheese
- 4 lean pork leg steaks, fat removed
- 1x 150g pack mozzarella cheese slices
- 50g breadcrumbs (homemade or shop bought) or crisps, crushed
- 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup
- Grated Parmesan cheese (optional)
Preheat the oven to 200°C, 180°C Fan, Gas Mark 6.
Place the leg steaks on a chopping board. Cover with a clear plastic bag and flatten with a rolling pin until about 0.5cm thick.
Cut each steak into 4 small ‘bite sizes’ and place on top a slice of mozzarella cheese you may need to trim the slices.
Squeeze 2 tablespoons tomato ketchup onto a plate and dip each ‘bite’ into the sauce. Place 50g fresh breadcrumbs onto another plate and season.
Lightly dip both sides of the ‘bite’ into the sauce and then dip into the crumbs or crisps until well covered.
Place on a non-stick baking tray and bake for about 20 minutes until crisp and golden.
Serve with baked ‘chip’ slices, relish and large mixed salad (*to make the crumb cheesy add 2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese, grated to the breadcrumbs).
