Sometimes, we use the connector -er for words that get -eren the plural for (see plural nouns?).

het kind + de wagen de kinderwagen the buggy
het ei + de dooier de eierdooier the egg-yolk
het kalf + de liefde de kalverliefde the ('calf') love between teenagers
het rund + het gehakt het rundergehakt the minced beef

The connector -er is very uncommon. Even words that take -eren as a plural ending, usually get -e, -en, -s.

Next to kalverliefde, we also have kalfskarbonade (veal-cutlet), next eierdooier also eiwit (protein) and eicel (egg-cell), and next to rundergehakt also rundvlees (beef).
