Schnitzel Cordon bleu

In 1975 I moved to PHV, a U.S. army base in Heidelberg. The first week I was there I was told that I had to go to a restaurant located near the base in a small town (I don't remember the name). I do remember the name of the restaurant as the "Golden Rose" known for their incredible Cordon Blu. I remember the cordon blue taking up half of the plate, it was breaded, and sealed into the middle was melted hot cheese and tender meat juices just waiting to pour out when you cut into it. It came with the most awesome carrot salad and potato. Since that time I have never had a cordon blu that was presented in that manner. It may have been deep fried to seal in the juice and cheese. I have made several attempts to replicate the dish, however my cheese always seems to ooze out and chicken/ham to be a little dry when baked.
Another recipe I have not seen since then was from a restaurant known as The Golden Anchor located in downtown Heidelberg. It has since been remodeled into an upper scale restaurant. The menu has since changed but back in 1976 they offered an apple strudel with warm vanilla sauce that was wonderful.
If you have or know of these recipes it would be a great discovery not to mention food happiness for the remainder of my life. Thank you for your time and hope you are able to find my requests.

Yaeger schnitzel
by: Larry Thornton

I was stationed in the area from 1971-1974. The Golden Rose was the best real German food I had in Germany. I would always order the Yaeger Schnitzle with lots of mushroom gravy and Fries, and the best Bibb salad ever. I would love to have the recipe if anyone has it. Email me at larryt@softwareearnings.com. Thanks.

WOW......what a flood of memories
by: Anonymous

I was a BRAT at PHV from 74 - 75....and the Golden Rose was our special occasion family spot. I have made dozens of Cordon Blu recipes through the years trying to recapture that amazing taste. I have come the closest with super big very thin pork cutlets from a local butcher, but they still fall short of the original masterpiece. Thanks for reminding me of how wonderful it truly was.

I was in Heidelberg this past summer. Drove out to the Golden Rose for a great German meal only to find out that it is now a Italian Restaurant. I was stationed at PHV in 72 - 74. I spent many evening dining at the Golden Rose.

Upcoming return to my past.
by: c.f. schreiber

I, too, was stationed there from 1972 to 74 and ate there many times but always the same dish. Their Cordon Bleu was their signature dish and it was served with massive amounts of pomme frites covered with a golden mushroom gravy. I am returning this coming June on a river cruise with a stop over in Heidelberg. I intend to find the Golden Rose again and see if it is all that it once was.

I agree the Schnitzel was great - if you finshed it and wanted more they would bring you another at no cost.

The also served a great Omlett with french fryes.

Golden Rose
by: Anonymous

The village was Kircheim. You went through it going going from Campbell Barracks to PHV. The Cordon Bleu was to die for. Wash it down with some Bergbrau from Liemen and you were in heaven.
