Scared of sweetbreads! Any help?

Luna4 | Jun 18, 2008 10:28 AM

Okay, so first Stephanie and Richard of Top Chef prepare two delicious looking (and sounding) sweetbread meals, and now I find out the restaurant I am going to tomorrow night offers them. To be specific, the dish is: Braised veal sweetbreads, morel mushrooms, braised carrots and rosemary au gratin potatoes. Now, I consider myself to be a very open-minded eater, and I will try almost anything once. But, for some reason thymus glands make me a little nervous. So tell me- are they worth the hype? This restaurant has AMAZING food- should I take a chance and pass up one of my fave dishes to try sweetbreads? What are they like? What is your favorite preparation?
