A recipe for Dad  from  The New York Times

 

 SWEETBREADS   A   LA   KING

 2 pairs sweetbreads

Water

6 tablespoons butter

12 fresh mushrooms, sliced

1 green pepper, seeded and chopped

1 canned pimento, chopped

1/2 cup sherry

1 cup heavy cream

2 tablespoons flour

1 cup milk

1 teaspoon salt

4 patty shells, purchased

1. Soak the  sweetbreads in ice water forty-five minutes.  Drain and cook slowly in simmering water to cover until white, fifteen to twenty minutes.  Drain, cool in ice water and remove all covering and connective tissues.  Cut into small cubes. 

2.  Melt half the butter in a saucepan, add the mushrooms, green pepper and pimento and cook about ten minutes.  Add half the sherry and cream. 

3.  Simmer until the sauce is reduced by about half.  Add the diced sweetbreads.

  4.  In a saucepan melt the remaining butter,  add the flour and stir with a wire whisk until blended.   Meanwhile, bring the milk to a boil and add all at once to the butter-flour mixture, stirring vigorously with the whisk.  Add to the sweet-bread mixture and season with salt. 

 5.  Add the remaining cream and sherry just before pouring the mixture into the heated patty shells. 

Yield:  4 Servings
