BLW/Favourite Finger Food Recipes & Ideas

Hi

I thought I’d share some of my (well baby bubble’s) favourite finger foods in case anyone wanted to try them. If anyone else has ones that go down well, please post them too.

(Because of the nature of these recipes and their ingredients they are only suitable for 6m+)


Savoury dropped scones

4oz SR Flour
1 egg
4 tbsp milk

Mix flour and egg, gradually add milk to make a thick batter. Add whatever savoury ingredients you want eg spinach and cheese, sweetcorn, mixed veg. Fry in hot well oiled pan for 3 mins each side or until browned on each side. (I tend to make them quite small about the size of baby bubble’s fist).


Basic Potato Cakes

Potatoes - fluffy mashable kind
butter - unsalted, ideally
Plain flour

Peel, chop and boil potatoes until cooked enough to mash. Drain, and mash with a knob of butter until most of the lumps are out - don't overmash. (Add extra ingredients at this point - see below for suggestions). Add flour little by little until the dough just stops feeling sticky, but is still light and fluffy. Place on a floured board, and pat into a circle about 1 1/2 cm thick. Put a very small amount of butter in a hot frying pan, let it lightly cover the pan, and then fry on both sides until golden brown.

Suggestions for additions:
Cheese
Spinach and herbs
Salmon/tuna (to make fishcakes, also nice with a blob of Dijon mustard)
Any veggies (I tend to throw in a couple of handfuls of mixed frozen veg (Sainsburys do an organic version).

Schnitzels (makes about 8)
3oz pork escalope
2oz breadcrumbs
4oz plain flour
1 egg beaten

Cut pork into bitesize chunks, Put breadcrumbs, flour and egg in separate bowls. Dip each pieceof pork into the flour, then the egg and then the breadcrumbs. Fry in a hot oiled plan for about 3 mins on each side until golden and cooked through. Drain on kitchen paper before serving.


Healthy Banana Cake
4 oz self raising wholemeal flour
half tsp mixed spice
2 oz butter
3 oz raisins
8 oz banana
1 egg, beaten

Preheat oven to 180 / gm 4.

Mix flour and spice, rub in butter and stir in raisins. In a separate bowl, mash the banana and egg. Stir into the flour mixture and put into a well-greased tin (fills a small loaf tin. Turn oven down to GM 3 / 160 C and cook on the middle shelf for 1 hour or until cooked.


“Turkey Twizzlers”

Mix a handful of minced turkey with some uncooked apple and pear ( I mash the pear till it's quite smooth but the apple chopped really finely), half a teaspoon of cinnamon and roll the mixture into easy to handle sausage shapes

I use a George Forman to cook these for about 20 minutes until very well browned – or you could oven bake or grill. They can be eaten hot or cold.

Veggie muffins
1 medium onion (grated)
4oz courgette (grated)
4 oz sweet potato (grated)
4 oz cheese (grated)
2 1/2 to 3 oz fresh wholemeal breadcrumbs
1 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp water

Preheat the oven to 350 deg F ( 180 deg C). Soften the vegetables by simmering in a little water for 2-3 minutes (or quick steam in the microwave) then drain and pat dry. Mix all the ingredients thoroughly in a bowl. Spoon the mixture into a greased mini muffin tin or mini muffin cases. Place in the oven and bake for around 20-25mins until golden.

These freeze well and are also good cold for ‘on the move’ food. You can add whatever veggies you have in – I’ve used red pepper, spinach, broccoli, carrots.


Meatballs


1lb beef or lamb mince
handful of breadcrumbs
1 small red onion finely chopped
1 tbsp tomator puree
1 garlic clove
1 tsp dried mixed herbs

Mix all the ingredients by hand or in a food processor. Roll into balls a bit bigger than a walnut (freeze any suplus at this point). Grill in a preheated grill for about 10-15mins, turning half way.

Other finger foods that go down well here and are easy include eggy bread, pasta with pesto and mushrooms, pasta with creme fraiche and spinach or butternut squash and cauliflower cheese.

Thank you so much for the potato cake recipe. Mooch's favourite breakfast is potato cakes and we tend to buy them ready made to shove in the toaster. Looking forward to making them with her.

We like to make Delia's scone based pizza which is basically your scone recipe, rolled or pressed into a cirlce, topped with passatta and cheese and mushrooms, ham, peppers etc.... Bake in the oven for about 15 mins.

Enjoy :D
The pizzas sound good. I was a bit annoyed yesterday though to find the organic passata I'd bought had added salt!

I've copied the recipes that were on the 'pumpkin muffin' thread so they are all together.

Torisen's Pumpkin Ginger and Sesame (savoury) muffins

12oz whole wheat flour
3tbs softened butter/marg
1-2 tbs sesame seeds (if possible slightly crushed)
soya/other milk
3 tsp baking powder
1 desert spoon grated ginger
1tbs sugar/honey (not honey if they are under 12 months)
8-10oz steamed mashed butternut/pumpkin

preheat oven 200degreesc/400degreesf/gas 6
combine flour,baking powder and ginger in bowl
rub in spread to resemble fine breadcrumbs
stir in sesame seeds and sugar (if using honey add this to mashed butternut/pumpkin)
add butternut/pumpkin and enough milk to make dropping consistency
spoon into 10 muffin cases and bake for 15 mins
if freezing beware not too over cook as nice to warm up again once defrosted.
best eaten fresh though

keeps and freezes well, I used to keep 1/2 and freeze rest. Makes good snack that baby can manage themselves in buggy ....

Mayo's sweet potato/spinach pancakes

175g plain flour
1 tbsp sugar
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp bicarb soda
284ml buttermilk
1 medium egg
25g unsalted butter, melted and cooled
100g spinach, wilted and excess water squeezed out
olive oil for frying

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder + bicarb in a bowl.
In another bowl, whisk together buttermilk, egg + melted butter then blend in spinach (hand blender or processor). Mix into the dry ingredients until just combined - if too thick add a dash of water.
Heat oil in frying pan, drop spoonfuls of batter into pan, wait for bubbles to appear on surface (aprox 2 mins) then flip over for another 2 mins.

or swap spinach for 200g peeled, boiled/baked, mashed sweet potato.

We also use just a spoonful of chopped tomatoes from the tin, nothing to stop you using fresh ones either although FILs crop this year hasn't been as good as usual so we've been buying ours from tesco and they are frankly, rubbish.

We like
Breakfast pancakes

Put 3 generous tablespoons of self raising flour into a bowl, add an egg, mix together with a balloon whisk or a fork, then add enough milk to make a smooth batter, a bit thicker than double cream. Heat a frying pan with a generous chunk of unsalted butter and poor any excess butter into the batter. When the pan is hot, drop in dessert-spoonfuls of batter. When the are starting to set on the top flip them over to cook on the other side. For DD2 I serve these as they are, just on the table (if I give her a plate she tries to eat that!), DD1 likes then with a bit of jam on or honey (honey should not be given to children under 1 year old) or you can just smear them with extra butter.

We like 'chips'
Cut potatoes into wedges, put them in a big plastic bowl, cover them with boiling water, bumg the whole thing in the microwave for 5 mins then drain them. Tip the drained chips back in the bowl and stir a spoonful of olive oil in until they are all coated in it, then bake them in a hottish oven for 25 mins or so until they are a bit crispy around the edges.

We especially like these with sweet potatoes, and it works with parsnips too. You can add a crushed clove of garlic with the oil too if you want.

Yep, chips are good.

We do your breakfast pancakes loads and throw anything into them and make them in a savoury meal. Yesterday it was spinach and cheese :yumyum:

Finger Foods / New ideas for 10 month old please!

hi ladies,

Olivia is 10 months old now and i am struggling on new ideas and foods for her... i'm not sure what she can have i.e. can she have fish fingers?? i'm not a very good or keen cook so simple ideas would be good to me, I also have 2 older step children who live with us so not an awful lot of time either!

Thanks ladies

We get Youngs fish fingers (well actually we get whatever's on offer in the supermarket, currently Youngs!) and they contain fish and breadcrumbs with a bit of salt and a bit of something that makes the breadcrumbs that bizarre orange colour, I think its a spice of some kind. So basically all natural ingredients. I am happy to give DD2 that kind of thing occasionally, she tried fish fingers for the first time yesterday and loved them. I am careful about salt, if she has something like that with salt in then she doesn't have anything else for the rest of the day with added salt and I never add it to homemade stuff. M&S chicken teddies are good too.

I know what you mean though, we sometimes run out of ideas and I feel like she has had a lot of the same thing over and over. Asparagus is in the shops now and we all love that, its great for babies as its a handy shape to hold, makes their wee smell funny the next day though so don't panic and think something is wrong. We are going through all the new spring veg, sugar snap peas, mange tout, baby sweetcorn... Sandwiches are popular, omlettes, pasta, jacket potatoes (I scoop out the middle and mix it with butter and spoon feed it, then cut the skin into stips for her to feed herself). When she is one we are going to try spagetti hoops/baked beans etc...

Eggy bread is always a good standby here. We also have quite a lot of (bottom of the fridge) soup - eaten at the moment with huge chunks of bread and a fork :rolleyes: The veggie muffins up there ^ are also great and you can freeze them and defrost in the microwave if you're in a hurry. Sandwiches. Pasta with anything you can throw in. Lower salt and sugar baked beans with cheese. Veggie sushi. And, in a very sad way, I love my slow cooker and we have loads of stews and casseroles which she eats with her fingers/fork/spoon/ears.

I make these and have tried adding different fruits to the batter, mashed banana goes down very well, as does blueberries and raspberries.

Ooh, they look yummy, going to give them a go this weekend Jen.

We had this tonight which worked well as finger/fork food, but I suspect could also be mushed for those who wanted to spoon feed.


Smoky Beef Stew.


1kg/2lb stewing beef cut into chunks
2 chopped onions
2x400g cans chopped tomatoes
2 tsp each sweet parika, ground cumin and milk chilli powder
2 tbsp red or white wine vinegar
400g can butter beans, rinsed and drained.

Mix beef, onions, tomatoes, spices & venegar in casserole dish. Cover and bake for 2 1/2 hrs at 160c/140c fan/gas 3. Stir in beans and bake for further 30 mins (with lid on or off depending on desired consistency).

I actually cooked mine in the slow cooker and then did some home made potato wedges and green veg with it. :yumyum:

Just read this thread as I'm running out of ideas!! It's fab and i'll try some for sure :thumbsup:

I've got a couple of AK books (100 finger foods) but for a lot of them there's more cooking and ingredients involved then when i'm cooking a fancy dinner for adults!!

At the mo i'm managing for lunches and dinners as there seems to be more you can do for those meals but it's breakfast i'm struggling with and the last couple of days DD has gone off eggy bread :what: Disaster! They always have cereal or porridge or somethign but it's all the more enjoyable if there's other stuff for them to shove in their mouths themselves. we made little pancakes this morning with maple syrup but they weren't really a hit either :sadface:

Any other ideas or shall I just leave the eggy bread for a few days in case she's overdosed in it :snigger:

Try jazzing the eggy bread up by adding some vanilla and a tiny (really tiny) pinch of brown sugar over the top before frying - the brown sugar caramelises on the surface and it takes really nice - you could make them with maple syrup as well. You could also make omlettes (cheese omlettes go down the best with J) I make them in a biscuit cutter so that I can make small, thick pancakes (J doesn't like floppy food so won't eat anything too thin), you could also try banana balls Jensqui gives the recipe in her link above but you can add any fruit alongside the banana. You could try cheese on toast and toast and Jam - Sainsburys carry a range of french jams which don't have sugar in them they are sweetened by grape extract instead which is still sweet but better than sugar. Also if you make porridge really, really stodgy you can roll it into balls, it makes one hell of a mess but it's fun to watch. You could try them with the occasional croissant (if you're brave you can make your own but everytime I've tried they turn into concrete so I don't know where I'm going wrong), make hash browns and sausages (easy to make your own sausages just get some minced pork or mince some yourself and then add some breadcrumbs (and any other ingredients you fancy) and roll them into sausage shapes before cooking. That's all I can think of at the moment - I'm hungry now too.

Yep eggy bread with a splash of vanilla is really really yummy. Definately worth a try. DD is usually just happy with cereal and fruit for breakfast but if she's still hungry we'll have toast or crumpets or muffins or pancakes - all of which are good finger foods. You could also try some fruits as well - pieces of pineapple, bananas, grapes?

Toast, cereal, yoghurt and fruit were/are the staples for us with croissants/pancakes at the weekend! Also crumpets - always a winner (DD2 calls them chumpets which is an added incentive for me to do them!).

Neither of my girls liked 'wet cereal' and still don't so tend to have it dry with the milk on the side!

x

ETS that I'm hoping other people have the same 'wet' cereal thing going on otherwise I'm wondering if my kids are odd?!!?!? In my defence they both used to have a milk substitute when weaning which was pretty grim on cereal so suspect that's what started it all off!

No, I know another child who has a 'wet cereal' issue too!

Which has made me think of another suggestion Duffy which covers both the finger food and breakfast thing - mini shredded wheat or shreddies are great with a bit of milk and then just let them get on with it.

My DDs like chopped fruit with yogurt and a bit of muesli sprinkled on the top. DD1 eats this with a spoon like the big girl she is. DD2 starts with a spoon and then gets bored of that and uses her hands and often progresses to tipping it on the try of her high chair and hurling her bowl across the room! :rollseyes:

Molasses oatcakes
175g oatmeal (except I didn't have any so we used porridge oats)
50g plain flour
1/4 teaspoon bicarb of soda
50g butter
90ml (3 big desertspoons) molasses or black treacle

Preheat the oven to 190C, fan 180C, gas 5
Grease a large baking sheet
Mix the dry ingredients together. Melt the butter and molasses or treacle together in a saucepan over a gentle heat, then mix it into the flour/oat/bicarb mixture. Spoon 12 blobs of the mixture onto the baking sheet and squash them a bit to flatten with the back of a wet spoon. Bake in the oven for 12-15 minutes.

These are only slightly sweet so they are nice with cream cheese or just buttered whilst still warm from the oven. They would make a nice change for breakfast or a snack with cheese and grapes. Or you could sweeten them up for a treat with jam, alternatively use golden syrup in the mixture which would make them a bit like flapjacks. I'm thinking we might try them with raisins in the mixture too. And if you are the kind of person who does posh dinner parties for grown ups, they would be very nice with some good stilton, in which case a good pinch of salt mixed in with the oats and flour wouldn't go amiss.

This is going to sound like a really stupid question, but I assume your LOs didn't have lots of teeth at 6 months, so how on earth do they eat this stuff?

Teeth are in fact the least of my worries as my LOs can't even find their months yet! Ahh...the joys of prem babies! But I love them sooooooooooo much!

No teeth, just good hard gums!!! I posted in your other thread, give them a bit of toast in the morning to practice with. I bet they manage to find their mouths when they realise they've got control over what goes in it!!

They need practice and BLW is the perfect way to practice hand to mouth, chewing, gumming and texture and taste!!

Hi everyone,

I know it has been a long time since anyone posted in this thread, but wanted to say how much we have enjoyed the recipes and add one of my own.

My one is Xander-slaw (coleslaw really but names after my DS). It's really simple and can be given as a messy finger food or via a spoon.

Grate carrot, radish and cucumber (amount by sight depending upon how much you wish to add) and stir in cream cheese (philli type) until you have a thick coleslaw. I have also added finely chopped pepper to the mix. Make sure you don't have too many cucumber seeds as this will make the cheese go watery and then you do have to use a spoon.


Also some of you may have seen this on other forums, but google docs have 100 BLW recipes at https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=...MmQzOWVl&hl=en (*Link not endorsed by FZ)
We tried number 1 (berry breakfast bites) this morning. Xander isn't the biggest breakfast fan but has demolished some of this (must admit only used 1/2 a banana). It's a bit like an uncooked crumble. Quite soft and sticky so am trying to come up with a way of making them a little firmer.

Sorry Gracie. Try this instead https://docs.google.com/fileview?id=0B9V…hMmQzOWVl&hl=en (*Link not endorsed by FZ)

If you are on Facebook there are a couple of BLW groups. There is also a link to this on the facebook 'Baby Led Weaning - Letting Your Babies Feed Themselves' page but you will have to scroll down and look for it.

(I have just tried copying the google docs link into my internet browser and it worked this time.)
