Karadjordjeva Schnitzel

Hungry? Not worried about your cholesterol? A famous Serbian specialty is the Karadjordjeva Schnitzel, a rolled veal or pork steak filled with ultra-rich cream cheese (kajmak), then breaded and fried, and if that weren't rich enough, served with fried potatoes and tartar sauce.

This heart-stopper got its name from Prince Djordje Petrović, known as Karadjordje or Black George (1768 –1817), the the founder of modern Serbia, who led the First Serbian Uprising against the Ottoman Empire (1804-1813) and personally led armies against the Turks in several battles.

I have never ordered one of these. They're just too big.
