do you mean sweetbreads as part of a sheeps' innards or sweet breads as in the baked/yeasty kind?

Sweet breads as in sheep or cattle meat

after all that ...sorry can't help.
My mum used to serve them up ...I think they were fried but what she did to them before that ...I haven't a clue, but they were scrummy & I loved them, despite being told they were lamb testicles (they are not).
Perhaps ring around a few 'real' butchers?
Good luck.

If you have The Mad Butcher in your area give them a ring. My local sells them (frozen), but don't think they are cheap.

yUK ordered these once, thinking they were the bread variety with some nice savoury dipes etc, being a vegetarian was DISCUSTED at what turned up, I nearly vomited

They are neck glands from a milk lamb. They are quite nice boiled, crumbed then fried, or boiled and served with a white parsley sauce

If they are from lambs, may only be seasonal. I wouldn't eat them or any offal i.e hearts, brains, kidneys, liver or tripe.

Can be hard to find, we pay about $15kg and not every butcher stocks them. If you have a freezing works near your area with a retail shop ask there...

you should be able to find them frozen
