Drain and cover with cold water.
Change water repeatedly until sweetbreads are cool.
Remove tubes and membranes.
Cut sweetbreads into bite-size pieces and refrigerate until ready to use. (Sweetbreads should be cooked as soon as possible after purchase.)
Cook mushrooms and onion in hot butter or margarine in a large heavy saucepot or Dutch oven, stirring frequently until onion is soft and mushrooms are tender, about 5 minutes.
With a slotted spoon, remove mushrooms, allowing butter to drain back into pan.
Set mushrooms aside.
