Thanksgiving is a time to come together with family and friends, share a meal, and give thanks. This year, why not add a little cannabis infusion to your festivities? We’ve aggregated some of our favorite recipes for you – from savory main dishes to delicious desserts, we’ve got you covered!
Garlic, Sour Cream, and Chive Cannabis Mashed Potatoes
Mashed potatoes are a staple of the Thanksgiving menu and it also happens to be a dish that is easy to blend with other flavors and ingredients and experiment with. This recipe, from Cannabis Cheri, offers a savory take on a classic dish. The combination of roasted garlic, sour cream, and fresh chives or green onions creates a delicious dish that bursts with flavor. You will hardly taste the cannabis at all.
This recipe contains an estimated 40 mg of THC per serving, based on using cannabis with 10% THC to make cannabutter and using 1/2 ounce of marijuana per cup of butter. You can easily adjust the dosage up or down according to your individual needs and the strength of the cannabis you use, as well as how much you used to make your cannabutter.
GREEN Bean Casserole
If you want to make your green bean casserole even more delicious, you can cook it with weed fat and weed milk. Or if you’re feeling really adventurous, mix bacon and bacon grease with cannabis for a flavor profile that will make your taste buds jump for joy. This dish is perfect for those who want the classic Thanksgiving experience with a little extra something special.
Cranberry sauce is certainly a divisive menu item at Thanksgiving. Some people put it on everything, while others avoid it altogether. Then, of course, there’s the debate about which kind of Cranberry Sauce is better, canned or homemade. If you want to turn your cranberry into canni-berry, homemade is the way to go.
This orange cranberry sauce will delight any cranberry sauce lover, marijuana-infused or not.
This delicious stuffing recipe is perfect for anyone who likes their dressing crispy or stuffed inside a turkey to retain moisture. Home-cooked stuffing is comforting, flavorful, and satisfying–but it can be easy to botch. With a few tips, you’ll have everyone at the table asking for more.
An easy way to add cannabis to multiple items on your plate while only having to put it one dish is to put it in the gravy! This also works out well for those who do not wish to partake, as you can easily provide MJ and non-MJ gravy options.
To put the cannabis in the gravy, simply take out the normal amount of butter or fat, and replace it with an equivalent amount of cannabutter or a different type of cannabis-infused product. If you don’t have time to make your own cannabutter, Rick Simpson Oil is a fantastic option that comes with many added medical benefits.
Cannabis-Infused Pie Crust
For dessert, the most versatile way to bring cannabis into the fold is to put it in a pie crust. This way, the option of what type of pie to make is completely up to you! This recipe from The Cannadish is for a classic shortcrust pastry and can be used for any pie you desire.
Whether you want to bake your pie crust immediately or freeze it for later, this recipe is perfect for you. Not only can you use this weed-infused crust for delicious sweet pies like cherry, apple, pumpkin, or blueberry pie – it goes great with savory dishes as well! This weed crust is perfect for mincemeat, shepherd’s pie, chicken pot pie, and steak and kidney pie.
The Last Toke
A final word of caution: If you are going to add cannabis to your Thanksgiving meal, you should probably schedule a nap afterward. Whether it’s the tryptophan in the turkey or just the result of eating a large meal, Thanksgiving dinner is known to make one sleepy. Adding marijuana-infused dishes to the mix will only intensify this effect, so be prepared for a food coma!
Happy Thanksgiving from us at Frost Exotic Cannabis. Enjoy the company of your friends and family and enjoy your feast!
