“Buttery roasted bone marrow makes a great no-fuss starter that’s sure to impress your guests. Serve on a large platter with garlicky croutons for dipping – a great way to use up stale bread.” – Keletso Motau




  • 4 large beef marrow bones, halved horizontally
  • sea salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • For the croutons:
  • 1 Woolworths Rustica loaf, torn into bite-sized chunks
  • 1 t garlic, crushed
  • 1 t green chilli, crushed
  • 4 T extra virgin olive oil
  • For the gremolata:
  • 30 g Italian parsley, roughly chopped (or use celery leaves)
  • 1 lemon, zested and juiced
  • 30 g walnuts, toasted and roughly chopped

Cooking Instructions

1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Place the marrow bones on a baking tray cut side up and season. Roast for 25 minutes.

2. To make the croutons, place the bread on a baking tray. Mix the garlic, chilli and 3 T olive oil and season well. Spread the mixture onto the bread and toss to coat evenly. Bake until golden brown and crispy.

3. To make the gremolata, mix the parsley, lemon juice and zest and walnuts with the remaining olive oil. 4 To serve, place the roasted marrow bones on a platter with the croutons and top with the gremolata.

Cook's note: Visit the butcher counter at selected Woolies stores and ask the butcher to cut the marrow bones to this length for you.
