I made this recipe up for my 10 month old son as he loves eating with his hands and trying new things. I wanted a recipe that was easy, had lots of veggies and that froze well, and this ticks all the boxes! He loves them!

Ingredients (makes 12 small patties)

  • 2 medium potatoes cut into small pieces
  • 1/4 cup cooked corn
  • 1/4 cup cooked peas
  • 1 large carrot grated and all moisture removed
  • 1 medium zucchini grated and all moisture removed
  • 1/4 cup cooked pumpkin in little cubes
  • 1/4 cup tasty cheese grated
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 2 pieces short cut bacon diced
  • Italian herbs (small amount)
  • garlic powder (small amount)


  1. Boil potatoes until soft. When done and cooled slightly, mash or put through a ricer if you have one
  2. Add all veggies, cheese, bacon, herbs garlic powder and egg and mix well.
  3. Add in about a 1/4 cup breadcrumbs (I used Panko) and about 2 Tbs flour and mix well
  4. Test the mix by seeing how ‘sticky’ it is. You want it to be quite ‘dry’ but still be able to roll into a ball without it breaking up.
  5. Add in more breadcrumbs and flour until you have the desired consistency.
  6. Roll into balls and place in fridge for 20 minutes.
  7. Pour a small amount of oil into a pan and then add the balls- squashing each one to flatten into a patty shape.
  8. Cook both sides until evenly golden brown.

Notes... These freeze well or can be kept in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week
  • These sound delicious and I’m sure something the kids would enjoy. It’s great that they freeze well so leftovers aren’t wasted.


  • Great meal prep idea and love the presentation for the photo


  • Simple, but look like a treat!


  • These look great.


  • I love this recipe i got to make these :)


  • I love this recipe. It is a great alternative to having meat in every dish. Thanks for the recip


  • Thanks for sharing, we love vegetable patties too ! I make them vegetarian and diary free because 4 of us are vegetarians and my youngest is on a diary free diet, but the nice thing is that you can vary them as you wish.


  • I will definitely be making these, so easy and all the veggies the kids need


  • Why put bacon in it, when the WHO recommends not to eat processed meats. Leave out the cheese and eggs for a vegan version and instead add nutritional yeast, tahini and chia.


  • Already added this tasty treat to next weeks meal plan! Looks delicious!


  • They look great and the recipe is tasty. Thanks a good idea here.


  • I personally wouldn’t give a baby as young as yours herbs or garlic as the flavours of them are very strong. Bacon is salty and its natural flavour should enhance the vegetable flavours well.
    You could mash the potato and pumpkin together.


  • These look amazing, I want to make them for myself haha


  • I think the whole family would love these.


  • A great option for children, nice and healthy
