turkey meatballs for babies

3.18.2013


As I had mentioned before, it has been an adventure finding new things to feed our little guy. After giving Austin chicken, beef, and a little salmon, I wanted to see how he liked turkey. That was when I remembered my sister-in-law mentioning a recipe for turkey meatloaf she tried out from wholesome baby food.  I quickly Googled for it and made my own rendition into turkey meatballs.

He really loved these meatballs (as you can see from the photo above). This is an awesome finger-food for younger babies who are not quite toddlers yet. They came out very moist and soft. It was solid enough for his little fingers to grab but soft enough to crumble once it was in his mouth. I even had a few myself after being tempted by the delicious aroma all over my kitchen.
