I actually desperately do need a schnitzel thread.

I manage when I am in Germany, but I never hit the good places, just the that's OK places, and don't really understand all the intricacies. We sometimes buy Lidl pre-breaded meat here in the UK, and it is barely OK, but then we fail on the sauce.

Sauce? Here in Oberpfalz (Bayern) there usually is no sauce. Just the breaded Schnitzel, pork of veal. If you get a "Natural Schnitzel" it is not breaded and usually comes with a lite almost white mushroom cream sauce. I have been in Hessen (Frankfurt) and had a Jägerschnitzel that was a breaded Schnitzel with a heavier salter brown mushroom gravy type sauce covering it. In my region you have to ask for something like this as it usually is not on the menu. I like a breaded pork Schnitzel with Pfifferlingen mushrooms when in season. You usually have to ask for this too.
