Christmas Dinner Baby Muffins

Baby muffins are an ideal on-the-go food for Baby Lead Weaning. You can pack all sorts of delicious veggies in them and you know they are going to be nutritious because they are bound with egg. My recipe for these simple muffins have all the tastes and flavours of Christmas and can be made with Christmas dinner leftovers and popped in the freezer for a taste of the festive season for weeks to come.
