Apple Turkey Loaf

This great recipe from Wholesome Baby Food can be easily made in to finger foods for your baby! Suitable for babies between 6 to 8 months, but use your judgement when giving babies finger foods.

Ingredients:
1 lb ground   turkey
1 whole egg, beaten
1/2 cup pureed carrots
1/4   cup applesauce
1/4 cup unprocessed natural wheat or oat bran
1/4 cup bread crumbs
pinch of basil
pinch of garlic powder

Directions:

Place ground turkey in a large mixing bowl.

Add   the egg/yolk, carrots, applesauce, spices, bread crumbs and bran. Mix well –   If this mixture appears too dry, add more carrots or applesauce. If this mixture   appears too wet, add more bran and/or bread crumbs

Place mix into a lightly oiled (olive oil) loaf pan   and bake at 350F for approx. 45 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out   clean.
**You may wish to cover with foil to prevent the top from burning

When finished baking and cooled, remove loaf from   pan and slice as you would for bread. Break into small bits for finger feeding   or mash or chop gently

This recipe may also be made into “Turkey Sticks”   for Toddlers and older babies who are able to handle more textured/chunky finger   foods.

Variations:

Cook the ground turkey separately, add the   other ingredients and puree
