Turkey for baby

I chose to buy turkey breasts, because they would be easy to cook and chop up into single serving sizes. They do also make ground turkey that would work for recipes that you are combining it all together.
I bake the turkey at about 350 degrees until the juices were clear and it was cooked all the way through. For added safety the internal temperature should be 165 degrees.
Then once meat is done and cooled, I puree with blender adding 1/4 cup of water to help give it a thin consistency that your baby needs.
Then freeze left over portions in an ice cube freezer tray. Thaw out what you need ahead of time in the fridge.
When your child is ready for the next step try mixing the turkey with any of these: Peas, lentils, sweet potato, acorn squash, apples or pears.

I make all of our baby food we eat the same as her and it saves a ton of money too.

    Do you have a special, fancy blender or just a regular one? I've never made baby food before, but I feel like my blender would die QUICKLY if I started making it!

    I have a Hamilton Beach Bebe hand blender and a kidco food mill.

      Turkey is yummy! I didn't blend a lot of meat. I relied on table food or baby food because I couldn't seem to get it ground enough.
