Roasted marrow bones are a delicacy.  The center portion of beef bones is rich & buttery when roasted and when scooped out of the bone and spread on toast is a rare treat.  Grass-fed beef bones, like the meat itself, have a more pronounced flavor than grain-fed.

Here we’ve paired them with a lemon & greens salad and a shallot & date jam to balance.  The date jam can be made well ahead, making this appetizer surprisingly easy & quick to prepare when the time comes.

Roasted Bone Marrow Appetizer
INGREDIENTS
  • Salad:
  • 2 Lemons
  • 1 bunch Fresh Flat Leaf Parsley, stems removed
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt to Taste

DIRECTIONS

1

Preheat your oven to 375°F.
2

Grate (and reserve) the zest from the lemons, then peel them & cut them into supremes (how to cut supremes). Cut each supreme into quarters.
3

Spread the marrow bones, cut side up, out on a baking sheet with a lip. Sprinkle them with the salt.
4

Roast the bones until the marrow softens and begins to pull back from the bone (12-20 minutes).
5

Optional: If the bones/marrow aren’t browned enough, briefly brulee them with a culinary torch.
6

Toast the bread in a lightly oiled frying pan.
7

Toss together all the salad ingredients.
8

Serve the marrow bones with toast, salad, and jam for people to construct their own bites, or scoop the marrow out & make individual toasts for passing as hors d’oeuvres.
