  • 3 tsp (15 ml) chopped parsley

  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 feet veal casing
  • Peel all the sweetbread and slice the foie gras about 3/4" thick.
  • In a hot skillet, drop the foie gras and saute for about 30 seconds on each side. Set aside until cool, then dice.
  • In the same skillet, with rendering from the foie gras and walnut oil, saute the sweetbread until colored on each side.
  • Add the chopped shallots and cook another minute.
  • Put aside on a plate and sprinkle the chopped parsley all over the sweetbreads. When cool, dice.
  • Mix diced sweetbreads with diced foie gras, put in a piping bag, and stuff in the veal casing.
