Pour back into saucepan and cook slowly until thickened. Add vanilla essence if necessary. Pour into a rectangular tray with 1-inch sides and chill until firm.

Bechamel sauce:

Melt the butter and add flour. Cook roux for 1 minute and then add heated milk to form a smooth sauce. Flavor with salt, pepper and nutmeg. Cook very slowly 20 minutes.

Soak sweetbread and brains in cold water for 1 hour. Drain and place into fresh water to cover and add some lemon juice. Bring slowly to a boil. Remove from the heat and drain. Skin sweetbreads. Preheat deep fryer to 375 degrees F.
