How do I avoid the phenomenon of pieces of breaded schnitzel sticking together inside the deep fryer

  • How are you putting the food into the fryer? lowering it in a basket? dropping them in one by one? if one by one, are you letting them cook for a little bit before you drop it all the way in? related: cooking.stackexchange.com/q/57491/67

Sometimes it's better to say: Don't put them in the deep fryer: add some pepper, paprika and butter on top of them and put them in the oven at 175°C (350°F) for 20 minutes.

If you insist on using a deep fryer:

  • Ensure you have a fryer large enough so they don't touch one another


  • Deep fry them one by one in a small fryer and then microwave them all together for 1 minute at 750W just before serving them.



I shallow fry them in a cast iron skillet with canola and do not crowd the pan
