Tomorrow, we’re carving pumpkins at Casa de Kolchak.
I’m super excited to carve something super cute and display it, but the dogs? They’re more excited about the pumpkin guts. You see, pumpkin guts can make a tasty treat – not just for humans, but for dogs too. Every year, I make a point to make a batch or two of our meaty, delicious pumpkin seed dog treat recipe.
It’s super easy and, if your dogs are like mine, they’ll love it.
Puppy Pumpkin Seed Dog Treat Recipe
Guts of 1 - 2 pumpkins
1/4 liver dust or crushed, freeze dried meat treats
Drizzle of olive oil
Clean guts so that only seeds remain.
Bring a pot of water to a boil and boil seeds for 10 minutes. Drain in a colander and pat dry with a paper towel or kitchen cloth.
Preheat oven to 325F. Toss seeds with a drizzle of olive oil and the liver/meat dust and spread onto a baking sheet. (I like to line mine with parchment paper for easy clean up.) Roast for 10 minutes until crisp. Remove from oven and allow to cool completely.
Serve, in small "treat size" quantities. Store in an airtight container.

I wondered if it was okay to use halloween pumpkins. You've answered my question!
Also, I liked your Zero pumpkin from Nightmare Before Christmas. Saw it over on Facebook page. :D

When I am making them for people, I do prefer to use baking pumpkins, but the dogs don't seem to care one way of another.
