The smell of a barbeque grill is practically the smell of summer. And when the weather is nice, a get together with close friends, family, and food can lift anyone’s spirit! This week, we’re giving you three marijuana-infused recipes to enjoy at your adult-only backyard barbeques!
Sure, you could buy the premade stuff. Or, you could make a splash with this homemade sauce that works with anything from chicken, steak, or even grilled veggies. This recipe was adapted from Zamnesia.
Using your slow cooker, place your finely-ground marijuana, splash of water, oil, onions, and lime juice in the pot. Cook on a low setting for 90 minutes. Stir occasionally and make sure the mixture does not come to a boil. Next, add the rest of your ingredients and increase the heat to medium until your sauce begins to gently simmer. Cook while stirring occasionally for 45 minutes. If the sauce is not reaching the desired consistency, add small amounts of cornstarch until the consistency is to your liking. Season with salt and pepper.
The sauce will keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to two weeks. Most people react well to 2-3 tablespoons of sauce, but will vary based on the individual.
If there are no burgers, is it really a barbecue? This recipe, brought to you by Watermelon, serves 4 and is a perfect for the burger-lover at your backyard soiree!
Use your hands to combine ingredients thoroughly. Separate into four evenly sized balls and press to form burger patties. Grill or pan fry patties to desired temperature. Add toppings to your burger and enjoy!
While meat on the grill is nice, everyone knows the barbecue side-dishes are where it’s at! And you can never go wrong with a great mac & cheese! This recipe has been adapted from the one found at Original Weed Recipes, and serves 6.
Cook pasta according to package instructions. In a separate, deep pan, add unsalted butter and cannabis butter and melt for 3-5 minutes. Slowly whisk in flour until fully combined. Add milk in small batches while whisking to create a smooth mixture. Next, add all seasonings and whisk until completely combined.
Take your pan off the heat and begin adding your cheeses a little at a time, leaving about ¼ cup of parmesan for later. After cheese sauce is completed, add cooked and drained pasta to the sauce. Mix until everything is combined and add to a greased baking dish.
Sprinkle bread crumbs and the remaining parmesan to the top of the mac & cheese and bake at 350 for around 30 minutes, or until crust becomes golden brown. Serve immediately.
For safety and legal reasons, we suggest that any marijuana food-friendly barbecues be attended by only those of legal marijuana consumption age. And when it comes to edibles, remember there is a lag time, so proceed with yummy caution!
