With all the hustle of holiday meals, it’s always nice to find a tasty, nutritious way to put those leftovers to use! This adorable finger food is a perfect leftover turkey recipe that can be served as a main, appetizer, or side to your baby led weaning dinner (or lunch), and they’re just the right shape and size for a tot’s teensy hands.
The spring onions in this leftover turkey recipe not only boost delicious flavor, but add wonderful health benefits. As little as spring onions (or scallions) may be, they are a great source of vitamin K, which helps to regulate blood sugar. That’s something we all need after holiday meals! Vitamin K is also used by many pregnant women to help relieve nausea, and it’s known to help bones retain calcium.
Aside from the health benefits, these little buggers are super tasty and cute! My babies have always loved foods that are ball shaped, whether they’re meatballs or our beloved Baby Led Feeding Baby Amazeballs, so I knew creating a leftover turkey recipe in their favorite finger food shape would be a great way to use our holiday seconds. According to the judges, we have a winner. 🙂 Let me know what your kiddos think!
All of the ingredients in these Leftover Turkey and Mash Potato Balls are inexpensive and easily available. No crazy produce that you won’t know where to find, and it’s all available in-store.
