Description

A simplified method, with delicious results! Sweetbreads are a nutrient packed source of protein and fat, and zero carbs. If you are dairy intolerant, use water to soak the sweetbreads. Suitable for Atkins, Keto, LCHF, low carb, Paleo, Carnivore, diabetic, low glycemic, gluten free, grain free, sugar free, dairy free, nut free, coconut free.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Sweetbreads
  • 1 cup Milk (Water For Dairy Free)
  • 1 teaspoon Susie Q Seasoning (See Notes)

Preparation

I use an oven-style air fryer, so this works in a single layer for me. If you have the basket-style air fryer, you may need to do this in two batches. If you don’t have an air fryer, you can easily fry these in a skillet with some melted butter and coconut oil. (The combination will keep the butter from burning.)

Soak the sweetbreads in the milk for a minimum of 2 hours (overnight is fine, if that makes it easier for you). Drain, rinse, and pat dry.

Preheat the air fryer to 400F. Spray the basket of your air fryer with cooking spray to avoid sticking.

Cut the sweetbreads into chunks around 1.5 inches square (breaking them apart is okay, too.) Sprinkle with Susie-Q. Lay seasoned side down in the basket, season the side that is now up.

When the oven has come to temperature, air fry for approximately 20 minutes. About mid way, give the basket a shake to make sure nothing is sticking. Sweetbreads should be nice and golden brown at the end of the cooking time.

Divide into 3 servings. Serve with a side of sugar free BBQ sauce or ranch dressing for dipping, if desired.

Notes:
• Most Sweetbreads recipes will tell you to blanch the sweetbreads in boiling water, quickly cool them, then painstakingly remove all of the membrane before cutting them up. I have bypassed all that, and they come out just fine! This is a much quicker and easier method.
• Susie-Q is a combination of salt, garlic, and parsley. If you don’t have this seasoning, use a little salt and garlic.
