JULY- Recipe of the Month Lock Rss

Hi to all our members,

We've launched a new section on our website that you can be part of, "Your Recipe of the Month". It will feature in our "Feeding Your Baby" section on the website.

Your recipe should be "tried, tested and loved", perhaps you could include a hint or tip for freezing, or in fact how to get the little cherubs to eat the food you've so lovingly prepared.

To Enter, post your recipe here. You have until the end of June, then the Huggies Team will make their selection and if your recipe is chosen you will recieve a small gift from Huggies.

Move over Donna Hay, the Huggies Parents Exchange members are going to strut their stuff.

Irish Stew

12 potatoes
6 large onions
1 carrot
2 ounces butter
A little parsley
Pepper and salt to taste

Cut up the potatoes in one-inch squares; scald, and cut up the onions, chop the carrot and parsley. Boil all together in a pint of water until the vegetables are cooked, but not pulped. Add the seasoning and butter fifteen minutes before serving.


Cheese Biscuits

2 cups of flour
4 teaspoons of baking powder
2 tablespoons of butter
1/2 teaspoon salt
Grated cheese sufficient to give desired flavor
1 cup of milk

Mix all the ingredients, excepting the cheese, as for baking powder biscuits. Roll thin, divide into two parts, sprinkle one half with grated cheese, lay the other half of the dough over the cheese, cut with a small cutter, and bake. The oven should be hot enough to bake the biscuits quickly.

350g mince
350g mushrooms
420g can tomato soup
1/4 cup tomato paste(optional)
300mls cream
150g pasta(any size or shape you like)
3/4 cup grated cheese

Cook pasta according to directions on pack.

I have a 3 year old & a 14 month old & they LOVE it. I have recently put my 14 month old onto soy products, no dairy at all, therefore I take a serving out for him before i add the cream.(Also no cheese on top) It hasn't made any difference to him, he still woofs it down.

Chicken Pasta Bake

2 cups uncooked spiral pasta
1 can creamy chicken & corn soup
1 1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
1/2 avocado, chopped
1/2 cup corn kernels
1/4 cup grated cheese
1/4 cup breadcrumbs

Cook pasta, drain.
Heat oven to 180o.
While pasta is cooking, heat the soup.
Stir in chicken, avocado and corn kernels.
Once heated through stir in the pasta.
Transfer to an ovenproof dish, top with cheese and breadcrumbs.
Bake in oven until cheese is melted and slightly browned.

Lucy has recently been asserting her independence and wanting to feed herself. By chopping the chicken and avocado fairly chunky its an easy meal for her to feed herself.

She also thinks it's quite tasty with broccoli and/or carrot added.
With three children to feed (and one still on the breast!) I need quick, simple and nutritious finger foods for my littlies. These mini quiche are ideal for a snack or a meal with salad or steamed veges.


Ingredients -
2 sheets puff pastry
1 onion chopped finely or processed
1-2 bacon rashers chopped finely
1/2 cup grated cheese
2 eggs
1/2 cup milk
seasoning to taste

Method -
PREHEAT oven to 220 degrees
CUT puff pastry into 6.5 cm circles (use scone cutter, cookie cutter or cup) and place in patty tins
DIVIDE onion, bacon and cheese evenly into pastry cases
COMBINE eggs and milk and pour equally over bacon, onion and cheese mix to cover
BAKE for 10-15 minutes until egg is cooked.

My family love these and they are great for when friends drop in. You could add small amounts of grated veges if you like instead of onion or bacon. Zucchini or carrot work well. Enjoy!
