This very well could be the grossest thread on the site.

Chris Ayers and I sampled brains and eggs on the 2011 Glee Club trip. I didn't much care for the flavor myself.

I believe that was in Raleigh and I was there and I almost gagged watching your order arrive.  Some like it and some don't and I am among the latter.  I do not know if it is the thought or potential texture.  You were sitting across from me.

B & E used to be a weekend breakfast for us in SoCal back in my 'youth' Mother did them quite well.  Since all the health issues and our relocation to Indiana, we have found them as 'Fair Food' at many of the county fairs and festivals in the Southeern part of the Hoosier State. I don't know (don't recall enough to compare) how Hog brains compare to beef brains...but I have tried the brain sandwiches a couple of times at local fairs and don't much care for them.

I'm with you lleechef - I'm fairly adventurous when it comes to trying different foods but I can't cross the brains boundary.

I'll call my dad tonight and get his pan fried balls recipe. They're delicious. He also scored a big bull coon last winter and braised it with a mess of sweet potatoes.

Mountain oysters, calf fries -- whatever you call them -- are great, and while I prefer my 'coon roasted or fried I'd eat it braised.

Here's a local sausage company in La Crosse that has won a gold medal in Germany for their headcheese, also for their Jellied Beef Loaf, which does look that appealing either.  But it too has been around forever.

I offered my neighbor tongue and eggs.  He wouldn't eat the tongue because it came out of a cow's mouth.  He just had the eggs.

Like that old episode of All In The Family where Edith proffers Archie a plate of cow's tongue "I'm not eating anything that came out of a cow's mouth. Now get in there and make me some eggs!

I think that after some of the stuff I've eaten overseas, brains and eggs just don't seem all that alien to me.

I'm preparing for a trip to Kentucky where I'll have access to brains once again (they're impossible to find in New Orleans) Really looking forward to a nice plate of brains and eggs with some celery stalks as a side dish.

I grew up eating brains, kidneys, liver, lungs...we ate whole hog on our farm long before nose to tail was even thought of. Nothing went to waste when we slaughtered a pig. I still routinely eat as much of the hog as I can get my hands on. We're having a boucherie this weekend and there will be precious little waste.

Jacques Pepin has devoted at least 2 TV episodes to offal and while it looks interesting I'm not sure I'm brave enough to try it.
 
When I was growing up we didn't waste any of the meat that came on the styrofoam tray.

The first time I had bull testicles my dad knew he was going to have to lie to me and my sister to get us to try them, and he did. They are delicious by the way but had I known in advance I doubt ten year old me would've willingly eaten them.

Even given my 'demographic' I cannot bring myself to consume sweetbreads.
 
In that I remain the 'hick' I was born as and kingly invite Anthony Bourdain and Hannibal Lecter to KMA.

Tsk.  Tsk.  Sweetbreads are divine.  All the time you spend in France and you have never had ris de veau à la Grenobloise or ris de veau Financière?  The French should ban you!  Please tell me you at least have had La Langue Lucullus de Valenciennes!!!!!!   Mon dieu........les americains.

In the Rio Grande Valley sweetbreads are common taco fillings, common and delicious.

Damn.  You know I love you! 
 
But I am a hick. 
 
I should have said that I do not knowingly consume sweetbreads. 
 
Only God knows what is in kielbasa (btw, THANK YOU!) or in those several plates of charcuterie I ravaged and relished with huge delight on my recent trip to Lutece.  I just don't want to know.
 
My Beloved has a cute take on it all:  "Don't ask" - or inquire too deeply.  She laughs at one of her sisters' asking if there is any alcohol in Tiramisu.  And, at any of her family wondering if there is any pork in an Italian meal.
 
A few days ago I gave my Beloved some pate served me at a Brasserie @ Haussmann & Tronchet and she loved it.  I 'sold it' as duck; the waiter, later, told the truth. 
 
We're still married.

I'll bet cheap to free (farm labor) had a lot to do with that.   While the better parts of the animal was sold to the yuppy/tourist at the Mexican Grill restaurants.    1 table spoon of meat in a $4 taco.

Trust me.  Sweetbreads are such in high demand and so expensive, that you never ate them in paté!  Do you eat hot dogs?  You'd be surprised what goes in them.  It might say "all beef" but it's beef tendon, silverskin, etc. all "bleached" to have the same color.  Pass the sweetbreads and some veal kidneys in Armagnac.  Merci.
