give a dog a bone


Bone marrow has been on my mind for days now and I was finally able to satisfy the craving. Each little nibble I got from soup bones or pork chops only made me want it more. On my recent trip to Chinatown I spotted some fairly decent marrow bones, I say fairly decent because they were mutton not the big and hefty beef that I was hoping for but they were going to have to do.



I roasted them in a 400F oven for about 15 minutes liberally coated in salt while I sliced a nice crunchy baguette lengthwise to make some toast.



While there was not nearly enough marrow to satisfy my craving it did do a fine job of making my toast a little more tasty.

Love marrow!! It's been FOREVER since I've had some. Now you've got craving for it.

oh, I love bone marrow on crustini. My dogs have to fight me for the marrow. I sneak around and dig out the marrow-then give them the roasted bones. And sometimes they have to wait until after the homemade stock.

Bone marrow is one of the most luxurious, decadent and exquisite accompaniments to toast.

I just read a book on this, and now have marrow envy

teresa said...

i've never had marrow, but for some reason i'm still craving it! these look delicious!

...all right, my vegetarian side is taking over. I'm perturbed, but happy that all parts of the animal are being used.

(I do LOVE that pink background--I've honestly been considering repainting my kitchen fuscia and hanging plants and herbs on all the walls)

Cinnamon-Girl♥ said...

A couple of months ago I might have thought 'eww' but now I'm eager to try it!

Velva said...

I would not have in a million years thought of roasting bones to get the marrow but, it makes perfect sense. I suddenly feel enlightened. Thanks!!!

Joan Nova said...

Delicious, but... I bet that had you raiding the refrigerator later on.

Diana H said...

My husband's family doesn't waste time with toast, they just suck the marrow out.

I'm going to have to join the marrow fan club ...

Elliott said...

Oh my. Yes, please!

Stacey Snacks said...

I had marrow last night too!
I love it, it's such a treat!

MaryMoh said...

Beautiful photos of bones! I remember chewing these when I was young....very delicious. I think I should go and get some and relive my childhood memories.

Jill said...

Did you see the marrow we had for new year's eve on my blog post? It was fabulous, but it left this caustic chemically goo in the bottom of my oven that took forever to clean! Unfortunately, my friend the chef, isn't much of a cleaner!

buffalodick said...

I once again will piss and moan about you having the best markets in the world..They would look at you cross eyed around here if you asked for that- even at a butcher shop!

Marjie said...

Seems like a good lunch. But I'd prefer to use the bones for soup.

Tangled Noodle said...

I have never had marrow like this - on toasted baguette! For those who are still a bit iffy about marrow, this may be the most genteel approach - another post showed the author sucking it out with a straw. I'm good either way.

The Blonde Duck said...

Dude you're hard core.

Just telling it like it is said...

I try and eat the bone marrow but it never cooperates!!! go figure

Creative Mish said...

I buy big ole beef bones at the local grocer for my dog to chew on. I've used them for soup bones (of course not after he's chewed on them). Never thought of baking them.... Maybe I should crank the AC/DC and give it a try :)

At our recent dining, I had a tiny bone marrow fritter and totally loved it!

sophia said...

Oh my freaking god. Have you been reading my mind? I've been longing to try bone marrow for so long now. I really, really really really WANT it goddamnnit!
Look at that lovely stuff in there! I'll look like a dog sucking on it, but hell, it's delicious!

Diana Bauman said...

I love this! I have some marrow bones waiting for me in my deep freezer from a grassfed cow, so nourishing!

mmmmm droolin here..

Bone marrow can be very delcious if cooked well in the oven or stewed. You can mix it with fresh cut red onion and rocket leaves to add interest to a salad or mix it with light cream cheese and roasted red pepper paste and spread it on toast with tomatoes and red onion dice.

Lori said...

This is the traditional way I've heard of having bone marrow. After eating it in Singapore, I'm definitely interested to try it like this. I had to get over initial "this feels odd" perception, but it was surprisingly good.

Pam said...

My mom would make us steak with the round bone when I was a kid. My sisters and I would fight over the bone and then using an ice tea spoon would eat the delicious marrow. You have brought back childhood memories with this post.

Mo Diva said...

this works for me... I love mutton marrow!!!

Nutmeg Nanny said...

Oh man I gotta give this a try. I like marrow too, but usually save that for restaurants. Yum :)

pigpigscorner said...

OMG give me the bones too!

Hummingbird Appetite said...

I've never had the full experience of bone marrow. I'd like to try this.

Juliana said...

Oh! I haven't had bone marrow for a while...would love it to have again :-)

Joanne said...

I don't think that I have actually tasted marrow in isolation enough to crave it. It's definitely an interesting idea to put it on toast...

The Diva on a Diet said...

I can honestly say I don't think I've ever had marrow on my mind! LOL But my husband would be all over this craving and this dish. You sure make it look inviting, doggy!

They are better than calcium tablets! Beautiful pictures!

My Carolina Kitchen said...

Marrow on toast - a match made in heaven. Beautifully roasted bones too.

Oooh. Have to say when I made Osso Buco last week, husband scraped out every last little bit of marrow and ate it up while I left mine. Couldn't face it. I, needless to say, was scolded mightily. And I wasn't even allowed to give my dog the bone.

I must say though that you make even marrow look scrumptious!
