    Default What to combine with egg yolk?

    I'd like my daughter to have a bit of egg yolk, but she doesn't seem to like the taste right now. Do you have any suggestions on foods to mix the egg yolk with to make it appeal to her more?

    I mixed it with several things initially. First, add a couple grains of salt - yolk is so BLAND, and the salt helps make it more tasty. I also mixed it with plain yogurt, olive oil, and avocado. For my kiddo, it was not only the taste, but the texture - a boiled yolk is very dry and pasty. Mixing it with any of the above helps not only the flavor, but also the texture.

    Any reason you're leaving the white off? Not that it would add too much flavour...

    what about a tad garlic powder? Tomatoes?
    we add a little ground flax seed and cheese - avocado if we have it.

    Oh I know (trust me- I know ) - but I was under the impression they changed the food intro guidelines?? I made an assumption here and clearly the OP is using the 'old' guidelines.
