Roasted Bone Marrow - Trying New Things (suggestions welcome)

In my quest for trying new and exciting things on the egg, I opted to try my hand at some roasted bone marrow.  

Whenever I usually do find bone marrow, it is cut in a circular pattern, which usually results in the marrow oozing out and making a giant mess.
Low and behold at my new favorite butcher here in Austin, Salt + Time, they sell bone marrow cut lengthwise making for super simple preparation.


Fired up the egg at about 400; roasted for about 15 minutes until they begin to separate from the bone.


Spread out on a little brioche with a simple garlic parsley salad.


Anyone else have some suggestions to help me push my culinary boundaries?

    Pretty interesting. Personally never cooked my own bone marrow, but looks like you nailed it to me.

    No other suggestion, looks fantastic. How did it come out?

    I'll just quote Anthony Bourdain here:  “If God made butter it would taste exactly like bone marrow.”

    I've eaten this at restaurants and love it. Seems they keep it fairly simple like you did and let the marrow speak for itself.

    @thievery - I owe this inspiration to you. Hoping to cook it tonight.

    Oh damn! I love bone marrow. Can't find it cut lengthwise around here though.
