Cooking with Cannabutter: 420 Buttery Bacon Burgers
With summer rolling in already many of us are preparing for vacations, long weekends and cook-outs with friends and family. If you’re looking for a way to put a new twist on a summer favorite, then you will need to ditch the grill in place of a more traditional frying pan when making these 420 Buttery Bacon Burgers.
Buttery Bacon Burgers:
- 1 ½ pounds Ground Beef
- 8-10 oz Real Bacon Bits
- 1 Tablespoon Minced Garlic
- 1 Tablespoon Minced Onion
- 1 ½ Teaspoons Garlic Salt
- 1 Teaspoon Pepper
- Brioche Buns, Sesame Seed Buns, or Potato Rolls
- Sliced Deli Cheese (Cheddar, Colby Jack or Pepper Jack gets bonus points!)
- Choice of Sauces: Ketchup, Mustard, Mayo or BBQ
- Veggies: Lettuce, Tomato, Onion, Pickles
Ground Beef Mixture:
Combine in a bowl ground beef, bacon bits, minced garlic, minced onion, garlic salt and pepper in a bowl until thoroughly mixed. Form preferred sized burger patty’s.
In a frying pan on medium-low heat 1-2 tablespoons of Evergreen Organix Homemade Cannabutter.
Fry bacon burgers in the cannabutter on medium heat until medium-well (or desired “wellness”) – adding additional cannabutter to the pan 1 tablespoon at a time as needed.
Lightly butter your chosen bun with Evergreen Organix Homemade Cannabutter and toast in a toaster oven or conventional oven on 350 or until lightly toasted.
Once your burgers are cooked set aside to cool and place cheese on them if desired to give it time to melt – then build your burgers with your preferred toppings and enjoy!
Depending on your tastes, you may want to include optional additional seasonings such as onion powder (recommended ½ teaspoon) or garlic powder (recommended ½ teaspoon).
If you prefer your burgers extra cheesy then consider adding ½ - 1 cup of shredded cheese to the ground beef mixture along with your bacon bits, minced onion and minced garlic.
You could also sauté some of your toppings – onions and tomato – in cannabutter prior to building your epic 420 Buttery Bacon Burger for extra flavor and even more of that added kick!
If you feel like this dish may be too strong, or not strong enough, with the designated amount of cannabutter then feel free to adjust to your needs – and substitute with regular butter if you are reducing the amount being used.
However, if you are planning to consume edibles, then you should always keep in mind the safest steps to dosing with cannabis – start low and go slow. If you are smoking or vaping cannabis, wait until it’s started to wear down to consume an edible, and always wait 60-90 minutes before consuming any more cannabis after eating an edible.
