Meat-Stuffed Pumpkins are Items in Breath of the Wild.[1]

Location and Uses

Meat-Stuffed Pumpkins can be cooked by combining a Fortified Pumpkin with any type of meat in a Cooking Pot. Their default version can be made by adding a third ingredient with an effect other than tough. By eating them, some of Link's Hearts will be restored to his Life Gauge. These meals are a specialty of Kakariko Village.[1]

After completing Koko's first two quests, Link can speak to her again to find that she wants to make her father's favorite meal, Tough Meat-Stuffed Pumpkin.[2] Unfortunately, while going over the recipe, Koko realizes that she doesn't have any Raw Meat.[3] This begins the Side Quest "Koko Cuisine". Link can bring her Raw Meat, which Koko will be thankful for[4] After making it, Koko will be pleased with the result, saying it's just like her mother made and giving some to Link as a reward.[5]

Only one variation of Meat-Stuffed Pumpkin exists:

  • Tough Meat-Stuffed Pumpkin:[6] Made by using the default recipe. Eating these pumpkins will increase Link's defense.[6]
