Thyme-crusted Pork Schnitzel

Thyme-Crusted Pork Schnitzel

Another Donna Hay winner. Really great to serve on a weeknight as it’s super quick and easy. Please don’t be put off by the horseradish. Mixed with the mayo it actually calms down the harshness and adds the most amazing element to this dish. Its different to what you would usually serve as a side sauce. Its really good! try it! you won’t regret it! 🙂

2 Tbsp chopped flat leaf parsley leaves (no stalks)
