Cheesy Cannabis Stuffing Balls Recipe:
Imagine taking the beloved tradition of Christmas stuffing and elevating it to a whole new level of delight. Enter the Cheesy Cannabis Stuffing Balls – a fusion of savory flavors, gooey cheese, and just the right hint of herbal magic.
For the stuffing:
2 onions, diced
1 clove garlic, finely diced
4 celery sticks, diced
½ tsp dry thyme
¼ tsp dry rosemary
½ tsp dry oregano
¼ tsp dry sage
2 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped
1 litre chicken stock
600g bread cubes
Salt and pepper
For the cheesy stuffing balls:
280g gouda cheese, cut into cubes
230g panko bread crumbs
1 tbsp canna-oil
Vegetable or canola oil (for frying)
For the Stuffing:
Preheat your oven to 180°C. Melt the butter in a large skillet, infusing your kitchen with a tantalizing aroma that signals the start of something special. Saute the onions, garlic, celery, and a blend of aromatic herbs until they reach a fragrant harmony.
In a large bowl, unite the bread cubes with this herb-infused symphony. Gradually add the chicken stock, letting the bread soak up the flavorful essence without losing its texture. Into the oven, this creation goes – covered in foil, emerging golden and crisp after a dance of flavors.
Once cooled, this stuffing transforms into a fine concoction in a food processor, ready to lend its magic to the next act.
For the Cheesy Stuffing Balls:
Now, imagine a world where gooey gouda meets cannabis-infused stuffing in perfect harmony. In a large bowl, bring together the stuffing, a beaten egg, and a touch of canna-oil. This union forms the heart of our cheesy stuffing balls.
Picture this – a cube of gouda enveloped in this flavorful mix, shaped into a ball that promises a burst of cheesy goodness with every bite. Dip it in beaten eggs, coat it lovingly with panko breadcrumbs, and watch the magic unfold.
Heat the vegetable oil in a pan, creating a sizzling symphony as you gently fry these stuffing balls to golden perfection. A cautionary note: don't overcrowd the pan; let each ball have its moment in the spotlight.

Wake-and-Bake Eggnog French Toast Recipe:
This festive season, treat yourself to the ultimate holiday breakfast with a magical twist – Wake-and-Bake Eggnog French Toast. Picture decadent challah or brioche luxuriating in leftover eggnog, soaking up the richness before taking a sizzling plunge into cannabutter. So, unwrap the goodness, because you deserve a cannabis-infused culinary journey that’s as delightful as the season itself.
1½ cups eggnog or heavy cream
1 teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon nutmeg
8 teaspoons Simple Cannabutter (see recipe) plus more for serving
12 slices challah or brioche
Maple syrup, for serving
Preheat the oven to 200°F and set a baking sheet on a rack in the middle of the oven.
In a shallow dish, whisk together the eggnog, eggs, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside this festive elixir, ready to transform your bread into something extraordinary.
Melt 4 teaspoons of cannabutter in a large skillet over medium heat, creating a golden pool for your French toast to bask in. Dredge each slice of bread in the eggnog mixture, allowing it to soak up the holiday essence for about 15 seconds on each side.
Fry the bread in the melted cannabutter, piece by piece, until it achieves a glorious golden brown hue on each side. As the bread greedily absorbs the cannabutter, add more for each batch, a teaspoon at a time. Once a piece of French toast achieves perfection, tuck it into the warm embrace of the oven on the baking sheet.
As you finish each piece, move it to the oven to keep it warm and toasty. When you're ready to serve, drizzle with additional cannabutter (if desired) and generously pour maple syrup over this cannabis-infused masterpiece.
