Those lazy mornings (or afternoons) when you not only have time to make a special breakfast, but have someone or two to eat it with are the best. French toast is always an excellent way to clear out the fridge before a trip or busy week: stale bread gets torn up and turned into daytime desserts, eggs get used up before their date, everyone is happy.
There’s really so many ways to add cannabis into this recipe. The egg mixture usually has some butter or milk, which is fat soluble and a good base for weed butter. It would be easy to use water-based glycerin tinctures, or if you’re trying the extra intoxicating version, a rum tincture. You could even mix tincture or extract with maple syrup if you don’t feel like mixing into the batter.
Recipes like this one allow you to get creative, it’s very flexible from the vehicle of THC delivery to the spices you like to use. What’s more fun, you can even use pretty much any baked good to put it together, including croissants, donuts, muffins, bagels, and cake, maybe those are also baked and now you have a french toast inception.

Customizable French Toast Casserole
Danielle Guercio 2013
Yield 12 pieces
THC per serving- Butter: 7.2mg per piece; Tincture: 14.5mg
- 6 eggs
- ½ cup milk
- 6-10 slices of bread or baked items
- 2 Tbsp butter*
- 2 Tbsp maple syrup*
- 2 Tbsp rum* (Optional)
- ¼ tsp ginger powder
- ½ tsp turmeric powder
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon powder
- ½ tsp allspice powder
- ½ tsp nutmeg
- 1/2 tsp clove powder
- ½ tsp five spice powder
- ¼ tsp cardamom powder
- ¼ tsp almond extract
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- Butter and maple syrup for serving*
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Tear bread into medium sized chunks, collecting in a bowl so you don’t lose the extra crumbs and bits.
Beat eggs and then add milk, spices, melted butter, whip until aerated and fluffy. Pour over bread and mix well. You can add another beaten egg if you think your dough is too dry.
Stuff into a well greased casserole dish and bake at 350 for 20 minutes, uncovered. If a toothpick comes out clean, you’re good to go, if not, bake for another 5 minutes at a time until it’s done.
Cool for 5 minutes before cutting if you want it to be extra pretty, dig in if you’re starving. Top with maple syrup and more butter.
*Cannabis Glycerin Tincture or Butter
In an oven safe container double sealed with foil, decarboxylate 3.5 grams finely ground cannabis at 225 degrees Fahrenheit.

Put cannabis in a mason jar or vacuum sealed bag, pour over 2 oz vegetable glycerin, high proof alcohol, or one stick of butter and seal tightly. Place in a water bath at just under boiling for 1 hour. Strain and keep contents in a sterilized container. Stores in freezer, 6 months for butter, indefinitely for glycerin and alcohol.
This recipe has one more awesome caveat, if you’re not a morning person, make the night before in the casserole dish and just pop in the oven. It’s really something special if you make to my specs, but you can get so creative and personal.

Try adding nuts, topping with fruit, mixing in bananas or even using banana bread as a base, it’s all going to be amazing. Best of all, the flexibility of where you add the weed means you can be more on-the-fly and use up something you have on hand.
