For toddler ages 12 months and up
Makes about 24 mini meat loaves
- Olive oil cooking spray
1/2 cup fresh or fine dried bread crumbs
1/4 cup whole milk
1 tbsp tomato paste
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1 large egg, lightly beaten
1/3 cup shredded zucchini
1 lb ground dark-meat turkey
Preheat the over to 425 degrees. Spray a rimmed baking sheet with cooking spray.
In a bowl, combine the bread crumbs and milk and let stand for about 5 minutes. Add the tomato paste, salt, egg, and zucchini and stir to mix well. Add the turkey and mix gently just until blended. Drop tablespoonfuls of the meat mixture onto the prepared baking sheet, spacing them evenly.
Bake until the mini meat loaves are browned and cooked through, about 13 minutes. Let cool, then cut into halves, quarters, or other sizes that your toddler can handle.
Store It: Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to 1 day, or seal in a zippered plastic bag and freeze for up to 3 months.
Pack It: Thaw two or three mini meat loaves, then pack in a small airtight container. Place in a small bag with a travel ice pack.
