Just watched someone make some schnitzel on a food show, and instead of dredging the floured pork into b.crumbs, it was crackermeal. What is crackermeal - can I buy it in a market, or should I make it myself? What's in it?

Thanks in advance.

Just ground up crackers. I tend to use Matzoh for it's lower fat and and salt compared to most crackers. Use what you like and adjust seasoning accordingly to what you use.

Try oyster crackers ground coarsely in a processor. Cracker meal should be very dry, fat-free (or close), and plain. Matzo meal is a good substitute, but it does have a distinctive taste--one I love, but it might not be what you're looking for.

Aside from bulk from food service suppliers, cracker meal is available from McCormick and Original Trenton Crackers (OTC).
