Leave them whole and use them in soup (minestra, minestrone) the way you would use a ham bone. After long, slow simmering the meat will fall off the bone and both meat and bone will flavor the soup. Flavor component combines well with beans, celery or starch (pasta).

A small local store nearby sells their very inexpensive Prosciutto ends on the bone, very meaty and resembling shanks. I'm thinking of making split pea soup with a couple.

Perhaps a Frittata or Spanish Tortilla w/potatoes?

Beans and peas come to mind of course - or chop them up into minestrone, or in a pasta and cream sort of thing. Quiche? Quick bread? many options!!!
