Are you ready for crispy, buttery, cheesy, melt-in-your-mouth grilled cheese heaven?
Who doesn’t like a perfect grilled cheese? Fluffy bread, crisped to perfection, filled with gooey melted cheddar…my mouth is watering just thinking about it. My favorite thing about a grilled cheese is that you can stuff them full with whatever you’re craving, or happen to have lying around the house. The perfect munchie food.
April is quite an amazing month — it’s the start of spring, it hosts the best stoner holiday, and in case you haven’t been celebrating, it’s also National Grilled Cheese month! That’s right, a whole month to dedicate the ooey-gooey, cheesy classic.
Naturally, we decided to spice up the average grilled cheese with our favorite enlightening herb.
Whether you’re looking to satiate those 420 munchies or keep the sesh on a high note, this simple and medicating recipe is a great weapon to keep in your back pocket.
What You’ll Need:
Cannabis-Infused Butter or Coconut Oil
Bread of Choice (I use brioche in this recipe)
Cheeses of Choice (I use cheddar and pepperjack in this recipe)
Since this is a chronic grilled cheese, we’ll be medicating this sandwich twice: first by buttering the bread in cannabis-infused butter/oil and second by frying the sandwich in the medicated butter/oil.
For this recipe, I used coconut oil infused with FECO (full extract cannabis oil) and trust me when I say a little bit goes a long way with that stuff. All in all, I probably used about 2-3 tablespoons making this sandwich, but that can be adjusted to suit your needs.

Generously spread your infused coconut oil or butter onto both pieces of bread. I’ve made this recipe with a bunch of different bread types and anything will work, but if you want a decadent grilled cheese look no further than brioche. These soft and buttery rolls will take your grilled cheese to the next level.
Pile on all the goods! Start by sprinkling the bread with garlic powder or any other flavors you love (paprika, cumin, sriracha, etc.). Then stack the cheese; one thick slice of cheddar and two slices of pepperjack is my winning combination. Now you can either be finished here, or you can add some extra dankness to kick it up a notch. Whether you want to add some bacon or an egg for protein, throw in some extra veggies lying around, or get real crazy and add some flamin’ hot Cheetos. Get creative!
Place a heaping spoonful of your infused butter or coconut oil on a skillet heated to medium-low. Let it melt and then place your sandwich on top.
Let your grilled cheese cook on medium-low heat for a couple minutes. If you have a lid or cover for the skillet, it helps melt the cheese quicker and more evenly.
As the cheese starts to melt, flip the masterpiece over (maybe add some more infused butter/oil), and let cook for another minute or two. You can keep flipping back and forth until the bread is toasted golden brown and the cheese is dripping down the sides.
Final step — dive in!
And maybe light up a bowl of Confidential Cheese while munching on your melty delicacy.
