Turkey Baby Food

My baby girl is now at the stage where we're trying out meat. So after looking up a few recipes, I decided to try my own spin on a "Thanksgiving Dinner" for her. Here it is:

Turkey Puree' Baby Food


Ground turkey (I purchased mine as a package of 4 patties)
Cooking Spray
Mrs. Dash


Heat a nonstick skillet sprayed lightly with cooking spray to medium heat. Add patty, seasoning VERY lightly on both sides with Mrs. Dash. Cook, chopping up to be sure it cooks thoroughly. When done, empty into a bowl and puree' using an immersion blender. You may need to add a small amount of water in order for it to puree' correctly. Put into individual servings in the ice cube trays, cover well and freeze. Then pop them out and put them in a ziploc bag for proper freezer storage.

When ready to serve, simply microwave along with a spoon of cranberry sauce or sweet potato puree'.

The Ingredients


Made into puree'. Yes I know it looks disgusting. Be glad you're a grown up!

  1. I did this too! :) I used chicken though and instead I just simmered the chicken in chicken broth and then used the broth in the puree. She didn't particularly like it unless i mixed it with more broth after defrosting. "NOT TO SELF" make a smoother/thinner puree next time ;) So how did yours like it. I usually had to mix it in with a vegetable b/c the texture she didn't care for alone.
