This week was a big batch-making week. I stocked back up on some of my favorites to have on-hand mainly for lunches and going out, but they are always good for dinner, too. Both boys are still wearing bibs, drinking from straw cups, and eating with fingers from plastic plates with rubber bottoms. We try the plain cup with water every now and then, but really nothing new on the skills list.
- Cheese Fingers These are a fun food for tiny little fingers. Remember to get creative with the spices.
- Fill a cup with 1 tsp of soy flour and 1 tsp of wheat germ. Fill the remaining with wheat flour. You can substitute 1 cup all purpose flour instead.
- 1/2 cup of butter, melted
- 1-1/2 cups of finely shredded Cheddar cheese
- 2 egg
- 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- Heat oven to 375°F
- Mix the Butter and Flour together.
- Add the cheese, egg, and spices.
- Roll this dough into small fingers and & bake for about 10 mins @ 375 F. You may wish to bake these for 15-20 minutes depending on the thickness of your logs.
- Bake for 15-20 minutes, depending on the thickness. Flip 1/2 way through cooking.
I kept some in the refrigerator for the next few days and the rest in a freezer bag to store for later.
WHAT I LEARNED
The cheese fingers are great for on-the-go and for a healthy addition to any meal.
These were great and my boys both loved them for a snack when they woke from their nap. They also continue to love the spinach bites…they just can’t get enough.
All of these have frozen, thawed, and reheated well so far. I’m really glad to have the cheese fingers and spinach bites on-hand for a quick bite.
