Love Beef Balls Recipe

It’s like a little cheeseburger for your pooch!

You don’t need to throw a cocktail party to make these appetizing Beef Balls! Made with love—The Honest Kitchen’s Grain Free Beef Recipe, that is—and ground beef, these bite-sized treats are grain and gluten-free. Plus, they include green peas, which are a good source of the B vitamin Thiamin, phosphorous, and potassium. Both parsley and rosemary are safe spices to use when it comes to feeding your dog. Parsley helps freshen your dog’s breath and also has vitamin C, K, and B, carotenoids, iron and limonene (an oil that kills bad mouth bacteria). As well as being flavorful, rosemary is high in iron, calcium, and Vitamin B6.
