    PSU Lioness's Note:

    I found this recipe on and I am posting it for safe keeping. It is recommended for babies that are 6 months and older, but they also advise speaking to your pediatrician before starting your baby on solids. Also, remember to follow the RULE OF FOUR (wait 4 days after introducing new foods) and make sure your baby has had no allergic reactions to any of the foods in this recipe before serving it!

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 lb ground turkey
    • 1 eggs or 2 egg yolks, beaten
    • 1/2 cup carrot, pureed (baby food works well)
    • 1/4 cup applesauce
    • 1/4 cup wheat bran (unprocessed and natural) or 1/4 cup oat bran (unprocessed and natural)
    • 1/4 cup breadcrumbs
    • 1 pinch basil
    • 1 pinch garlic powder


    1. 1
      Place ground turkey in a large mixing bowl.
    2. 2
      Add the egg/yolk, carrots, applesauce, spices, bread crumbs and bran.
    3. 3
      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.
    4. 4
      Place mix into a lightly oiled (olive oil) loaf pan and bake at 350F for approximately 45 minutes or until an inserted knife comes out clean.
    5. 5
      **You may wish to cover with foil to prevent the top from burning.
    6. 6
      When finished baking and cooled, remove loaf from pan and slice as you would for bread.
    7. 7
      Break into small bits for finger feeding or mash or chop gently for younger babies.
    8. 8
      This recipe may also be made into "Turkey Sticks" for Toddlers and older babies who are able to handle more textured/chunky finger foods.

      My 10 month old daughter loved these! She tends to not like most things with meat. I made them into a fishstick shape and cooked them for about 30 minutes and they were done. I froze them and now I can reheat one or two for dinner or a snack. I plan on trying this with different combinations, like ground chicken and ground beef and other veggies.
