Schnitzel may have it’s origins in Viennese cuisine but in Sweden it’s still extremely popular especially when Swedes travel North for ski season.  This version is beaten until thin and then stuffed with gruyere cheese and thin slices of smoked ham.  Serve it with creamy velvet mash spiked with chives and it’s true comfort food.

Lay the pork steaks on a chopping board and season. Dollop and spread a tsp of mustard on each piece of pork. On one piece of pork, place a slice of cheese, followed by a slice of ham and a slice of cheese. Add another piece of the meat over the cheese and press down.
Place the beaten egg, flour and breadcrumbs in three shallow bowls. Season the flour with salt and ground black pepper.
Working with a wet and dry hand, dip each pork schnitzel in flour, followed by egg, followed by breadcrumbs. Place aside on a plate.
Melt the butter and oil in a pan over a medium high heat and fry the schnitzels for 6 minutes either side or until golden brown and cooked through.
Place the potatoes in a pot of cold water and season with salt. Cover with a lid and bring to a steady boil, cooking for 12-15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender when pierced with a fork.
Place the butter and milk in a small saucepan until warmed through and the butter is melted. Drain the potatoes and pass through a potato ricer into a mixing bowl (or use a potato masher to mash until smooth).

Stir in the warm cream and butter mixture and mix until smooth. Season with salt and pepper and stir through the olive oil and chives.
Serve each schnitzel with a generous dollop of velvet mash, lingonberry jam and a sprig of parsley.
