Food for Thought; BLW Lamb and Mint Sausages

Baby Led Weaning is hitting our house big style and with it the return of the Baby Led Weaning Cookbook with recipes in for all the family.

Sausages are a firm favourite of the Toddler. I can guarantee that tea will be eaten if I serve sausages but I don’t like to do it regularly as they aren’t always the healthiest. As well as that it’s difficult for the baby to manage and I’m not the world’s biggest fan of de-skinning sausages.

This recipe moves away from pork and uses lamb instead it’s probably less of a sausage and more of a sausage shaped lamb meatball.

BLW Lamb and Mint Sausages


250g lamb mince
75g peas
2 tbsp fresh mint
1 tsp dried mixed herbs

    Ooh, these sound delicious! Will have to try… I’ve never made my own sausages before and this looks like it’s quite easy and straightforward. If I give it a go, I’ll let you know how I get on! Thanks, LPMx
