DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Lightly coat a baking sheet with olive oil and set aside.
  • Combine all remaining ingredients and mix well.
  • Before mixing, add seasonings if you like - garlic powder, pepper, basil & oregano for example.
  • Shape mixture into nuggets or fun shapes such as squares or squigglies etc.and place on baking tray.
  • Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, turning nuggets over after 15 minutes. Serve warm.
  • Be sure to crumble these if your baby needs.
  • (Note: If your baby cannot have eggs, you can substitute a jar of vegetable puree. Carrot works well).
  • These may also be frozen for up to a week. Reheat in oven the same way you prepared them and allow plenty of time to cool before serving them to your little one.
