113. MOCK SWEETBREADS (Cheshire)

Take three-quarters of a pound of veal, pass it through a mincer two or three times till it is practically a pulp: add a little suet or bacon very finely shredded or minced, the yolks of two eggs to bind, and a few fine breadcrumbs to give it consistency. Season with a little mace, pepper, and salt: add a little cream or milk to moisten. Make up into the shape of sweetbreads, and brown in good (but not fierce) oven. Serve with gravy.
