  1. Take a small dollop of cannabutter and use it to grease the casserole dish.

  2. Put the rest of the cannabutter into a small pot and melt it slowly over low heat.

  3. Once the butter has melted, add 1 cup of the brown sugar to the mix.

  4. Make sure to whisk the ingredients together until smooth, and then let it simmer for one minute.

  • Pour the sweet and sticky mixture into the grease casserole dish and use a spatula to smooth it out into an even layer.

  • Add the vanilla extract, milk, and eggs to one of the mixing bowls, whisk them together, and then set the mixture aside for now.

  • Now, combine the nutmeg, remaining brown sugar, and cinnamon in the second mixing bowl, and set this one to the side somewhere safe too.

  • Layer the bread slices into the bottom of the casserole dish, lining them up to cover as much of the pan as possible.

  • Spread half of the egg combination onto the bread pieces, and then finish the layer off with half of the cinnamon mix.

  • It’s now time to build up the second layer with more bread slices.

  • Once the bread is lined up, use the remaining egg to soak the pieces and then top it all off with the remaining brown sugar and spices mixture.

  • Measure out enough aluminum foil to comfortably fit the casserole dish and then use it to seal in the fresh toast layer.

  • Let the French toast casserole rest for 30 minutes.

  • About 10 minutes before you’re ready to start cooking, preheat the oven to 350°F.

  • Once the oven is ready, it’s time to bake the french toast casserole for 30 minutes.

  • Retrieve the casserole from the oven and remove the aluminum foil layer before baking it for another 15 minutes uncovered.

  • Once the french toast casserole is done, take it out of the oven and serve it up hot with a thick layer of your favorite fruit, icing sugar, and even syrup if you want an extra sweet treat.
