Lamb Baby-Burgers


Food for toddlers needs to be easy. Because that way, if they decide to:

a) throw it

b) refuse it without even trying it

c) just generally be a dick,

as the home-chef, you aren’t as devastated. These Baby-Burgers are brilliant. You can serve them in a bun, with other vegies (eg. Sweet Potato Ripper Chips), or solo, whatever works for your little dick. They also act as sneaky vehicles for nutritious whole-grains and vegetables. Haha! Sucked in kids, you cheeky little bastards.


– about 100g good quality lamb mince

– a few tablespoons of cooked brown rice (or breadcrumbs if you can’t be fucked with the rice, but the rice is better!)

– 1 egg

– a handful or two of finely chopped baby spinach/kale

– 1+ tablespoons of a grated vegetable (like carrot)

– 1 or 2 tablespoons grated cheese (depends on your bambino’s cheese-affinity)

– oil/butter for cooking

Baby gets Burger:

– give your hands a good washin’. They have some smooshing to do

– in a bowl, combine the mince, egg, cooked brown rice, and vegetables. Now get your paws in and give that all a good smooshing. The end result will be quite sticky because of the egg, in fact, it will stick like shit to a blanket

– form the meaty-gooey-shit into little balls

– heat up your butter/good oil in a frypan over a low-med heat

– the next bit is the fun bit. Get the balls into the frypan. Now flatten them like they belong to Rolf Harris


– these fellas need some frequent turning, but bless them, they cook in just 4 or 5 minutes

Feel free to act like a smug arse-hat when your toddler enjoys these hidden vegies,

(and you didn’t even have to tie them down, sport!)

    These are amazing! My 11 month old bubba loves em. Shannon could you pretty please do some quick baby friendly recipes for the whole family? I hate making two different meals all the time and my husband refuses to eat puree!
