Bulldogs on the Beach and Burgers
Well it is Friday again and we are looking forward to going to the Belmar Beach Bulldog Bash on Saturday! For bulldog lovers it is a feast for the eyes! Bulldogs in all sizes and colors, some decked out in costumes roaming the beach with their owners. It is a great opportunity to talk "bull" with other bullie parents and share stories. We went last year in November and Ozzie was one of the biggest bulldogs there. Who would of thunk it?! Hopefully if my camera cooperates I will have some great photos to share with you! In the mean time I cam across a recipe for Bacon Bulldog Burgers that I found on the website: www.bulldogabbie.com
I have revamped it somewhat to make it a little more figure friendly for Ozzie. It seems like this would be a tasty treat that I wouldn't mind eating myself! Enjoy your weekend!
1 cup of brown rice 2 cups of sodium reduced chicken broth 4 slices of turkey bacon 1 large egg 1 1/2 cups of bread crumbs 1 cup of reduced fat shredded cheese ( cheddar or swiss ) Cook rice with chicken broth. Bring to boil then reduce heat to simmer and cover for 20-25 minutes until rice is tender. Transfer rice to large bowl to cool. In skillet cook turkey bacon until crisp. Remove and finely chop bacon and add to rice. Mix in bread crumbs, egg and cheese to rice. Mix thoroughly and separate into 4 equal pieces. ( don't hesitate to add more egg or some low fat milk if mixture is too dry ) Form into patties and cook 4 minutes on each side in the same pan you used to fry the bacon. Allow them to cool and serve to man's best friend!
