Recipes for Baby's First Thanksgiving
For the expert eaters (10 months and older)
Basic Turkey Dinner
1 slice of cooked turkey breast
1/4 cup cranberry sauce
Place turkey in a blender or food processor. Blend with water (1 tbsp. at a time) until it is a smooth liquid. The cranberry sauce will thicken the mixture, so add until it is the desired consistency. You may need more than 1/4 cup to make it thicker than a puree.
Turkey and Veggies
1/2 cup ground or cubed cooked turkey
1/4 cup cooked corn
1/4 cup cooked rice, cooked potato, or enriched pasta
1/4 cup breast milk or formula
Combine and blend or mash until only a few lumps remain. Also try these good combinations: beef, peas, and potatoes; chicken, carrots, and rice; beef, squash, and macaroni; pork, green beans, and potatoes.
Crust-Free Sweet Potato Pie
1 sweet potato
1/3 cup butter
2 tbsp. evaporated milk
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Peel sweet potato and boil until tender. Place in a bowl and add all other ingredients. Mix until smooth. Pour batter into a small baking pan and back for about 35 minutes.
1/8 cup breast milk or formula
1/2 cup cottage cheese
1/3 cup cream cheese
1/8 cup of shredded mild cheddar cheese
1/4 cup cooked peas (still warm)
1/8 cup cooked carrots (still warm)
Mix all ingredients together and blend or mash until the desired consistency is achieved. Serve warm or refrigerate.
