What's not to like? You can whip up some delicious French toast in no time using ingredients you probably have on hand. As for the cooking part, all you need is a frying pan.
Ingredients for making Weed French Toast
All you need to make French toast are eggs and bread in its simplest form, although we'll talk about some variations below, including how to add cannabis to your favorite French Toast recipes for a great Wake and Bake breakfast.
French toast is a delicious breakfast treat, but it doesn't really have to involve fresh bread.
In French this dish was called "Pain Perdu" or "lost bread," referencing the fact you can use day old or stale bread to make delicious French toast.
You can use most any kind of bread but white or other neutral flavored breads work best.
Sweet breads such as Hawaiian bread, cinnamon raisin bread, panettone, or other sweet style breads work exceptionally well and make great candidates to be turned into French Toast.
Most chefs recommend whole milk for the best flavor, although you can use low-fat or skim milk if you prefer. You can even substitute a vegan milk such as almond milk or soy milk.
Most recipes are written using large eggs. If you have small eggs, add an extra to the batter. Most French Toast recipes are not that exacting.
As for seasonings, there are lots of optional ingredients you can add to give your French toast a boost of flavor.
- Vanilla or other extracts
- Sugar or other sweeteners
Toppings for Cannabis French Toast
Butter and maple syrup are traditional but not required for topping French Toast.
Fruits, either sliced fresh or in the form of jams, jellies, or syrups are another popular way to enhance the flavor of French toast.
A sprinkling of confectioner's sugar on top will give your French toast a decorative look.
How to Make French Toast Healthier
French toast can be indulgent, but it need not be. Although some of the rich flavor might be missing, your healthier French toast will still be delicious when using some or all of these tips:
- You can save on the fat content of French Toast a by ditching the whole milk and using low fat or skim milk instead.
- Liquid egg substitutes can similarly save on fat and calories.
- Lastly, substitute bread made from white flour for one made with whole grains.
How to Add Cannabis to French Toast
In the recipe below, I add the cannabis to the French toast with either melted cannabutter or melted cannabis infused coconut oil. The tutorials at the links will show you how to make these cannabis cooking staples.
Alternate ways of medicating Marijuana French Toast
- Use a cannabis tincture by simply beating in the tincture with the other ingredients when making your French toast batter.
- Use a concentrate like kief hash, rosin, resin, FECO, or other type of hash oil. To do so gently heat the milk part of the recipe in a small saucepan or in the microwave. Once the milk is warm, stir in the concentrate until dissolved, then stir the concentrate infused milk into the rest of the recipe and proceed.
Dosing for Weed French Toast
The recipe below makes 2 servings, both consisting of 2 pieces of cannabis French Toast. Each of those two servings will have about 25 mgs THC if you made your cannabutter or cannaoil from cannabis containing 10% THC and if you used 14 grams (1/2 ounce) to make 1 cup of butter.
To adjust the recipe to reflect the strength of the cannabis you are using, and to get the dosage you personally need, be sure to either take my FREE edibles dosing class, or even better get my $5.00 dosage calculators that do all the math for you.
