In Germany people love to eat schnitzels together with different sauces (don’t ask me why! I think a schnitzel tastes perfect without any sauce. But most Germans are addicted to sauce or gravy. Meat without sauce really isn’t an option).
One of the most popular Schnitzel combos is the so called “Jägerschnitzel”. Jäger actually means “hunter” and Jäger sauce refers to a mushroom sauce because a hunter goes to the forest and in the forest there are mushrooms or something like that.
Here is a recipe to a Jägerschnitzel in case you are interested. This traditional German food inspired our newest avocado toast. Here is our Jaeger AvoToast!
