Potato & Cheese Dinner (For Babies)

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 25 mins

This is for babies 6 months and up. It is just like cheesy potatoes...but for babies. My DH could smell this when I first made it and wondered what I was making for dinner. I told him it was for the baby, he seemed disappointed. It tastes pretty good, so I probably could have given him some too! I use a pinch of dry minced onion, instead of the onion. I also used breastmilk/formula instead of the milk.

Well, this looked good and smelled good, but baby girl (8 months) did NOT like it... It may have been the texture since it is a little thicker than the baby food she usually eats; or could be typical of my kids... both of my DSs did not and do not eat potatoes. Will have to try it again when she gets a little older and starts eating regular foods. Made for Spring PAC 2013.
