  • 2 chayotes
  • 4 potatoes
  • 1 onion
  • Fresh thyme
  • 1 tablespoon of mixed garlic and ginger
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 tablespoon of flour

Carefully wash the potatoes and the chayotes.  Peel them and then cook in a large saucepan of water. Mash with a fork.

Peel the onion and chop finely. In a saucepan, sweat the onion and add the thyme and garlic and ginger mixture.  When the onions become translucent, reduce the heat and add the potato and chayote mash and the egg yolk.  Blend vigorously.

Then add 3 tablespoons of cheddar and melt.

Pour this mixture into an oven dish and sprinkle the cheddar and breadcrumbs on top.  Brown for 5 minutes in the oven at 180°C.

Breast milk is the ideal nutrition for your baby. It naturally contains everything your baby needs to grow.

The World Health Organisation (WHO) recommends feeding your baby exclusively with breast milk up to the age of 6 months. France Lait Laboratory supports this recommendation & therefore prohibits all communication on infant formulas (0-6 months).
