This recipe has been passed down from my mum. I love it on a cold winter's evening. Even more so when my mum visits and brings it with her ready made for that evening! Babies can eat this meal from six-months-old but it is tricky as the food isn't easy to hold so this is probably one best attempted to be eaten with a spoon which babies tend to start to handle at around 10 months old...so get ready for the aftermath!
Prep time: 30 mins, cooking time: 1 hour
Feeds: 4 adult servings, several baby servings so plenty to go in the freezer
- 300g lean Mince lamb
- 450g potatoes
- 1 small-medium sized onions
- 1 carrots
- 1 sticks of celery
- 1 clove of garlic, finely chopped
- 1 x 400g Tin of tomatoes
- 1 tbsp of oats (optional, this makes it go further)
- 1 Bay leaf, sprinkling of thyme, basil and pepper to taste.
- 1tbsp Tomato purée
- 200ml Vegetable stock (low salt or homemade)
- 50g grated cheese
- Chop vegetables into chunks then blast the food processor
- Heat oil in a large pan, cook veg on low along with the finely chopped garlic
- Remove veg and add meat, cook on low, then once brown, add the veg back in
- Stir in tomato puree, add in herbs, 1 cup of milk and the tin of tomatoes and vegetable stock
- Simmer for 30 mins
- Transfer to an ovenproof dish, pile on the mash potato, sprinkle grated cheese over the top and bake for 25 mins.
Weaning: Babies can eat this meal from six-months-old. But I did wait until about 10-months-old so my baby could attempt to eat it with a spoon.

We know what a pain it is to scrub at your baby's clothes each day, so my husband and I designed a lightweight baby bib. The bib covers clothes from your baby's neck to their toes and is tight at the cuffs. Check out our range of Small Coverall bibs. Our Aprons are perfect for toddlers. Our fabric is as light as a feather so it doesn't hinder their movements.
