Bone Marrow

This is one that we'll be making in the future for our more adventurous foodie friends since digging for the contents inside bones is not always everyone's favorite appetizer.

However, we found some beef marrow at our local Asian grocery store and decided to give this a try. Simply take the bones and place them upright onto an oven-safe pan. We decided to season these after baking since we weren't sure exactly how much salt to include.

Beef bones
Salt and pepper to taste
French baguette (sliced and toasted)
Balsamic vinegar (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

2. Bake in the oven in an oven-safe pan to catch all the drippings for approximately 15-20 minutes.

3. Toast baguette slices while baking the bones and remove once golden brown.

4. Broil the bones for 2 minutes prior to removing from oven.

5. Remove from oven and let rest a few minutes.

Scoop marrow on to toast, salt and pepper to taste, and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.

YUM! Super rich, protein flavor, but definitely buttery in texture. Probably portion out 1-2 bones per person (for health reasons).

* The marrow in this picture is a pretty pink. You likely want yours to be less pink and more yellow.

Happy eating!
