This savory medical edible uses both pot butter and cannabis infused oil to create a delicious way to medicate. Forget plain old grilled cheese. Try this gourmet version, which features caramelized onions, apples and walnuts.
- 2 Tbsp cannabis infused olive oil, plus more as needed
- 1 yellow onion, sliced
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp balsamic vinegar
- 4 slices of whole wheat bread, sliced thick
- 2 Tbsp cannabis butter
- Handful of walnuts, chopped
- 1 Granny smith apple, sliced
- Cheddar cheese, sliced
- Cook the onions, cannabis oil and salt in a large, not nonstick pan over medium heat for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally. (You can use pot butter if you do not have cannabis oil.)
- Lower heat and cook for 30 minutes or until onions are medium brown, stirring occasionally. Add more oil if they begin to stick.
- Add the balsamic vinegar and cook an additional 15 minutes. Remove from heat.
- Turn on the broiler. Place an oven-safe skillet on a burner over medium heat. If you do not have an oven safe skillet, you may wrap aluminum foil over the handle.
- Spread cannabis butter on one side of each slice of bread.
- Place 2 pieces of bread in the skillet, buttered side down. Arrange a layer of caramelized onions on the bread, sprinkle the nuts on, then add a layer of apples, and finally, add the cheese. Cook the sandwiches until the bottom of the bread is golden brown.
- Place the skillet under the broiler just until the cheese melts, checking often.
- Remove the skillet from the broiler and put back on the stove over medium heat. Top the sandwiches with the second piece of bread, placing it buttered side up.
- Flip the sandwiches, and cook until the bread is golden brown on the bottom.
