Finger food: Tuna and potato croquettes

We had half a can of tuna left from dinner the other day and figured we’d whip up some finger food for the bubs (and us too, since we usually love eating his food!).

Easy finger food: Tuna croquettes - These tuna croquettes are easy to make and require ingredients that are probably in your pantry already.

Turns out it was so yummy that we all enjoyed it as a teatime snack today. Poor baby – his parents ended up eating most of this! (Although he turned he did have more of the prune muffins instead…)

Easy finger food: Tuna croquettes - Here’s the recipe (adapted from The Baby-Led Weaning Cookbook by Gill Rapley):


2 large potatoes

One 5-ounce can of low-sodium tune (in oil or spring water)

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1/2 cup breadcrumbs


  1. Peel and boil the potatoes.
  2. Preheat the oven to 400 F or 200C.
  3. Drain the tuna and mash with the cooked potatoes and butter.
  4. Shape the mixture into little sausages and roll each one in breadcrumbs.
  5. Bake in the oven for about 20 minutes or until browned and cooked through.

These tuna croquettes are great for your toddler and the rest of the family. Even better, they can be stored in the fridge for a few days or you can freeze and reheat them in the microwave or oven for another day.

Hope you enjoy them! :)
