Wiener Schnitzel

I was going to make some wiener schnitzel with some venison I had and was going to follow the recipe in "Cook's Illustrated". They took 7 slices of white bread and put it in the microwave for 4 minutes, then put it in the food processor. Well, after 2 minutes, my bread was black and stinky. I improvised with some panko so it wasn't exactly like the recipe. I did add the oil to the egg wash and I let it rest on a wire rack after the dredging. It made a huge difference in the adherence of the coating. I cooked some blackeyed peas in chicken stock, bacon fat, and onion. The potatoes were out of a box. Shhh!
