Ingredients

6 sl
 Of bread, crusts removed, sauteed golden brown in butter
4 Tbs
 Butter
2 lb
 Sweetbreads, soaked, trimmed, and blanched
1 c
 Dry sherry wine
1 c
 Heavy cream
1 Tbs
 Chopped shallot
 
 Flour
 
 Salt and freshly ground white pepper



Instructions:

Cut the sweetbreads into 1/2-inch slices, season them with salt and pepper, and dust lightly with flour. Heat the butter in a large frying pan over fairly high heat until the foam subsides and brown the sweetbreads for about 3 minutes on each side. Transfer them to a hot serving platter and keep warm. Add the shallot to the butter in the pan, cook until it begins to color, add the sherry, and reduce to
1/2 its quantity. Add the cream and continue cooking until slightly reduced and thickened. Taste, and correct seasoning. Arrange a few pieces of the sweetbreads on each of the slices of toast and spoon a little of the sauce over each.

Serves 6.
