Steak and Kidney Burgers


Normal beef burgers are OK for dogs, but if you want to cook up something special that the dog will really love – and which is a lot more healthy for him – try these steak and kidney burgers.

The kidney gives extra flavour, as well as essential nutrients such as fatty acids, vitamins and iron. Make up a load and put them in the freezer, so every time you have a BBQ, the dog doesn’t have to be left out!

You will need:

· 250g beef mince

· 250 lamb’s kidneys, finely chopped

· 1 small carrot, finely grated

· 2 eggs



Break the eggs into a bowl and then put the shells on a baking tray and cook them for ten minutes in a moderate oven. This helps to dry them out as well as killing off any nasty bugs. Then grind them up with a pestle and mortar or rolling pin until they form a fine powder.

While the egg shells are baking, fry the grated carrot for five minutes in a small amount of oil.

Then mix the mince, finely chopped kidney and beaten eggs together, and add in the cooked carrot.

Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of the egg shell powder in and knead the mixture together.

Then form it into burgers and cook on the BBQ just as you would with a normal burger.

Allow to cool and then serve to the dog with some rice or pasta.
