Schnitzel burgers with cheese and grilled peppers


Swedish street food can be really unexciting. It is usually [smoked] bangers and mash, burgers etcetera. But if it is a good kiosk or gatukök the food can be really good. An old-fashioned kiosk classic is this schnitzel in a bun with cheese and grilled peppers that I can sometimes crave.

The really processed version is of course, like all processed foods, quite terrible. But if you bread your escalopes yourself and make your own buns, it is suddenly a great alternative to a burger. But, and I am afraid this is important, the only cheese that works here is the plastic variety.


Schnitzel burgers with cheese and grilled peppers, serves 2

2 homemade buns

2 pork escalopes

1 egg, beaten

plain flour + seasoning


butter and oil for frying

2 slices plastic cheese (i.e. Dairy Lea)

4-6 tbsp sliced grilled peppers in oil

maybe a small dollop of mayonnaise

Dip the escalopes in the seasoned flour, then in the beaten egg and finally in breadcrumbs. Fry in oil and butter until cooked through and golden brown on both sides.

Spread a small amount of mayonnaise on the bottom half of the bun, place the schnitzel on top, then cheese and plenty of peppers.
