Babies First Lamb Chop

Last night I made Layla her first lamb chop. I baked in at 400 degrees for 12 minutes and then pureed it with a little water and some butternut squash. She loved it!! Of course she likes lamb chops, but will not swallow chicken or turkey. It seems she already has expensive taste when it comes to food. I will do you all a favor and not post a picture for this one, pureed meat is not the most appetizing thing to look at.

Lamb for baby: Makes 3/4 cup 
1 boneless lamb chop or steak(6 oz)

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F . Line a roasting pan with foil and lightly oil a rack and place it in foil lined pan. Place lamb on rack. Roast turning once until cooked throughout and no longer pink; 12-15 mins per side. Remove and let cool.

Using a large knife, chop lamb and transfer to food processor or baby bullet system. Puree for 1 minute; with machine running add in 1/4 cup of water. Process until smooth. Add enough additional water to make it the right consistency for your baby. If you would like to make the lamb a little chunkier, it is okay to mince the meat extra fine for the baby to eat (mince like you would garlic).

Store in refrigerator for 2 days or freeze for up to one month.
