Tuna and sweetcorn croquettes

Healthy and easy to make. These are the perfect food for baby. Easy to pick up yet soft inside, these tasty treats have been one of Harry’s favourite foods since he was 6 months old!

This recipe makes approximately 8 croquettes.

Ingredients

  • 1 potato
  • 1 tin of tuna
  • 1 tbsp sweetcorn
  • Breadcrumbs (1 slice of bread)
  • 1 tsp unsalted butter
  • A dash of whole milk
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Cooking spray

Method

  • Peel and chop the potato, then boil until cooked.
  • Drain the potato and mash until smooth.
  • Stir in the butter, milk, tuna and sweetcorn.
  • Shape the mixture into cylinders then roll in the breadcrumbs until well covered.
  • Spray a baking tray with cooking spray. (We use sunflower oil fry light as it helps to make them lovely and golden on the outside.)
  • Place the croquettes on the tray and spray lightly with more cooking spray.
  • Cook in the oven at 180 degrees until golden (approximately 25-30mins)
  • Serve with whatever you like!  Harry likes his with cheesy beans!

yummy!

    1. I like to take them out of the freezer in the morning to defrost then pop them in the oven for a few minutes to reheat. You can use the microwave but it makes them go a little softer and they don’t hold their shape as well when picked up.

  1. Hi. Can breastmilk be used? If not can you suggest any a substitute? Thank! Wanted to try this for my 9 month old 🙂

    1. Hi, I’m sure breast milk would be fine or babies usual milk.
      After 6 months of age whole milk or whichever alternative you choose can be used in food if you choose.
      It’s only to make the mashed potato so you could even leave it out if you prefer.
