The best meatloaf recipe ever with a hint of cannabis
It might not quite be time for family Christmas meals, but with the holidays so close, many have already begun to celebrate with parties and dinners. During these times we often go out to eat to save our precious energy for the busier part of the season, but if you have a few quick and easy dinner ideas on hand, it won’t seem like such a hassle. Nothing beats home-cooked food, and this meatloaf recipe delivers the hearty dose of healthy foods along with a warm a fuzzy wave of comfort that will leave you relaxed and wanting more.
Preparation time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 1 hour
- 2 lbs. lean ground beef (thawed)
- 1 cup dry breadcrumbs
- 1 large cooking onion
- 1 sweet pepper
- 2 eggs
- 2 tablespoons cannabutter (room temperature)
- 4-6 large cannabis leaves (for garnish/optional)
- ½ teaspoon garlic pepper
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup BBQ sauce (any flavor)
- Large mixing bowl
- Mixing spoon
- Loaf pan
To start this meatloaf recipe, toss the ground beef, spices, and cannabutter into a large mixing bowl and use your hands to mush the two together until you no longer see white chunks, which indicates that it is thoroughly combined.
Set the oven to 350°F to preheat. Now peel and finely dice one cooking onion and add it to the bowl with the meat.
Remove the core of the sweet pepper then dice and add to the bowl with ground beef.
Finally, toss in the dry breadcrumbs and mush it all together with your hands until the mixture reaches a consistent color and texture.
Press the meatloaf mixture into the bread pan but be sure to press down hard to remove any possible air bubbles which might interfere with the meat cooking evenly.
Bake the meatloaf in the oven on the middle rack for 30 minutes, or until it starts to brown at the edges.
After 30 minutes has elapsed remove the meatloaf from the oven and rest it on a heat-safe surface.
Pour the barbeque sauce on top of the meatloaf and use a spoon or silicone spatula to spread it until it is evenly coated.
Gently drop the cannabis leaves, evenly spaced apart on the layer of barbeque sauce.
Bake the meatloaf in the oven for an additional 30 minutes, or until done to your liking.
Homemade barbecue sauce made with condiments
If you don’t have time to run to the store or can’t find any barbecue sauce in your fridge, there is no need to worry as long as you have ketchup or tomato sauce as a base, and a few other common condiments to help spice things up. This barbeque sauce recipe will make the one cup of sauce that is required for the recipe above, so if you want to save some for later, then be sure to double the recipe.
- 1 cup ketchup (or tomato sauce)
- 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
- ½ teaspoon apple cider vinegar
- ½ teaspoon Dijon mustard
- ½ teaspoon of brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon of strawberry jam
Add all of the ingredients to a medium-sized mixing bowl.
Use a whisk to thoroughly combine them until smooth.
That’s it! Your homemade sweet and tangy sauce is ready to go.
Edibles dosing recommendation
Edibles are often some of the most potent marijuana products around, and it’s not necessarily because of how much weed they contain. Eating cannabis-infused goods will take much longer than smoking for the effects to take hold, but once they do, they can continue to last up to 12 hours after the initial ingestion. That is why many regions want strict maximums for these kinds of concentrated goods, as they can lead to a much more uncomfortable situation that can last a long time if a person overconsumes.
This meatloaf recipe is a good one for beginners who have never experienced these treats, so it shouldn’t take anyone on too long of a high unless they were to eat the entire thing. Still, if this is either your very first time or first one in a while, it’s probably best to stick to ½ slice of this meatloaf in one sitting. If, after 2 full hours you still feel like you’d like more, then go for a second serving, but any more than that could potentially lead to a less enjoyable experience known as “green out”.
