Ingredients

  • 4 lambs’ or 2 calves’ brains
  • 2 oz butter

Method

Prepare the brains. They should be perfectly white. Remove the stem and slice each brain in half. Make a well flavoured sauce with half the butter, the flour and the milk, seasoned with nutmeg, salt and freshly ground pepper. Melt the remaining ounce of butter in a frying pan and gently fry the brains for three or four minutes, seasoning with salt and pepper.
