“The worst part of this recipe is cleaning the sweetbreads. Sweet breads are a gland located in the neck of cattle not what you may otherwise have heard!!!! They have a wonderful delicate flavor and once tried you'll want them again. They are very difficult to find now but if you ask your butcher they should be able to bring them in for you. I also love them breaded and fried. I put six servings but that is only a taste each”
