Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs dinner

While we are still in October, we decided to celebrate our own little Oktoberfest by watching Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.  We had some great German foods themed to the classic!   We actually did this dinner before we started blogging and I think it's better this time around!

For dinner we had German Jaegerschnitzel, Doc's Spaetzle, Oktoberfest Beer, Snow White's White Hot Chocolate, The Evil Queen's Apple Dumplings, and Diamonds from the Mine.  Sehr Gut!!!

German Jaegerschnitzel
We tweaked this recipe here.

3 boneless, thin pork chops
1 large egg
1/2 cup of flour
1/2 cup of Panko bread crumbs
Salt and Pepper
Vegetable Oil

1. Lightly season the pork on both sides with salt and pepper.
2. Cover the bottom of a skillet with oil and heat on medium high heat
3. Place the flour, egg, and breadcrumbs in 3 separate bowls.
4. Dip the pork chops in the flour, the egg, and the bread crumbs to coat both sides
5. Once the oil is hot, fry the schnitzels for about 2 or 3 minutes on both sides.  
6. Once cooked, transfer for a plate lined with paper towels

Doc's Spaetzle
Last year we cooked this and I almost had a melt down.  It was tasty but it was a lot of work.  This year I found it prepackaged.  So we just made it according to box directions.

Oktoberfest Beer
Tim couldn't resist busting out his German stein his buddy John got for him in Germany!  

Snow White's White Hot Chocolate
I got this recipe from the Disney Princess Cookbook Tim got for me!

1/3 cup of white chocolate chips
1/3 cup of whipping cream (not heavy)
1.5 cups of milk
1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
Dash of cinnamon

1. Mix white chocolate chips and light cream in a small saucepan and warm over low heat (I set mine at 3) until chips melt, stirring the whole time.
2. Stir in the milk and vanilla extract.  Turn heat up to a medium heat continuing to stir until desired temperature.
3. Remove from heat and whisk the hot chocolate until the top is foamy.
4. Pour mixture into two mugs
5. Add desired amount of marshmallows and cinnamon.

The Evil Queen's Apple Dumplings
Recipe from the same cookbook as the White Hot Chocolate.

1.5 cups of flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 teaspoon of nutmeg, divided
6 tablespoon of cold butter
1/2 cup of milk
1 peeled apple (cut into quarters)
1/2 cup + 2 tablespoons of brown sugar 
1/4 cinnamon
1 cup of hot water

1. Heat the oven to 375 degrees.  Spray a 9inch square baking pan with cooking spray.
2. To make the dough, mix together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg in a mixing bowl.  Cut 3 tablespoons of butter into small pieces.
3. Use your hands to knead the dough together.
4. Stir in the milk.
5. Flour a surface and knead the dough until it holds together and dust the top with flour.  Roll out into a 12 inch square (mine was more of a circle)
6. Cut the dough into four equal squares and place one quarter of apple in each square.  
7. Take a tablespoon of butter and quarter it.  Place one quarter in each square. 
8. In a small bowl, mix together 3 tablespoons of brown sugar, cinnamon, and 1/4 teaspoon of nutmeg.  Spoon equal amounts of mixture in each square.
9. Gather three corners of dumpling together and pinch together.  Put all four in the baking dish.
10. Combine hot water, the remaining brown sugar, and 2 tablespoons of butter, melted.  Stir and pour over the dumplings in the pan.
11. Bake for 20 minutes until golden brown.
12. Spoon more syrup over the top. 
13. Serve warm

Diamonds from the Mine

We had a fabulous dinner!  Below are some of our Snow White Adventures in Disney World.
