Easy bone marrow for babies

I recently discovered that Weston loves eating marrow bones! We buy the small beef marrow bones from They are about a 3/4" cross section of bone surrounding a nice amount of marrow. You can take a couple straight from the freezer and bake in a toaster oven at 350 degrees for about 3 minutes. Remove, sprinkle generously with garlic powder, salt, and a little pepper, then bake 1-2 more minutes.

Cool for a minute or two and then serve with baby-sized spoons. Weston digs most of his out himself and then I help him with the rest. I also sprinkle on more salt as he digs down below the top layer.

For adults, a strongly-flavored sauce like garlic pesto cuts the extremely fatty flavor of bone marrow. Remember to eat it hot because once cooled it congeals quickly!
