I recently joined a Baby Led Weaning group on Facebook. A bit late in the day, as my youngest is now a year old. I never knew of this or similar groups when Lil Man was weaning. Despite my two being fully weaned now, it still gives some great ideas for all meals of the day, as well as some tasty snack ideas.
This recipe is a variation of the many frittata and various egg-based finger food ideas out there, so you could easily adjust this to be dairy-free or have different veggies in.
You will need the following ingredients;
- 1 tin tuna
- 2 eggs
- 5 table spoons breadcrumbs (I always cheat and shop bought ones)
- 1 clove garlic
- 1 handful of sweetcorn
- Salt and pepper
- Empty the tuna into a large mixing bowl.
- Crack in both eggs and mix until the yolks are completely blended in.
- Chop and add the garlic. (Another cheat for you, use a garlic crusher for a speed and no smelly fingers).
- Pour in the sweetcorn and mix thoroughly.
- Lastly, add the breadcrumbs and season. Add enough to dry out the mixture and make it stick.
- Spoon the mixture into a frying pan. I made mine about the diameter of a digestive biscuit and about 1/4 inch thick. But you can do any size you like, simply adjust the cooking time.
- Fry in shallow oil for about 10 minutes each side, but flipping over every 5 minutes (otherwise they will stick or burn).
These went down a treat with both my 1 and 3 year old, plus they are tasty enough for grown ups.
If you try these let me know how they were reviewed in your household. Or do you have any other suggestions?
