10 Recipes for a Baked Brunch

May 31, 2024 · Cannabis Now

There are two types of people: those who love to brunch (bottomless mimosas, anyone?) and those who roll their eyes at the very idea of a late morning soiree. For the lovers, brunch is the widely-celebrated lovechild of breakfast and lunch that allows them to enjoy the best of both dining worlds without having to wake up early enough for an omelette or wait until later for a club sandwich. And the haters? Well, they just might need some extra motivation to get them excited — like a brunch full of cannabis-infused dishes.

Baked Marijuana French Toast

All of the usual suspects are present for this stoney breakfast staple with one extra special addition — cannabutter! Unlike versions made quickly on the stove, you’ll need to start this dish the night before to let it soak for 8 hours before baking. It may seem like a lot of extra work, but it’s worth it.

Kief Fried Chicken

Make your version of chicken and waffles the talk of the town with this recipe that ensures each piece is crispy and crunchy on the outside and juicy and flavorful on the inside. You can choose whatever strain of kief you’d like but stay away from sweet or fruity strains that may throw off the savory flavor of the chicken.

Dirty Chocolate Chai Latte

When it comes to brunch beverages, it’s usually mimosas or bellinis that get the spotlight but you can redirect the focus with a warm, relaxing drink that will make you feel good minus the alcohol. Instead, this recipe uses decarboxylated kief to kick this chai up a notch.

A stack of double chocolate infused pancackes are topped with a dollop of whipped cream.
