Ingredients

    Schnitzel

    1 cup nonfat milk
    1 large egg
    2 cups Italian-seasoned dried breadcrumbs
    8 large portobello mushrooms, stemmed
    2 medium-sized eggplants, sliced into 1/2-inch rounds

    Lemon-Caper Sauce

    3 Tbs. unsalted butter
    3 Tbs. olive oil

To make Schnitzel: Whisk together milk and egg in wide bowl. Spread breadcrumbs on large plate. Dip mushrooms and eggplant slices into milk mixture, then coat slices with breadcrumbs.
