Melty magic: Ham & cheddar panini (recipe)

This sandwich is the bomb. The bread gets crusty, the cheese gets melty, the weed kicks in and everything is beautiful! In its own way. (Lame song reference!)

A good grilling and some cannabis takes a simple sandwich to a much tastier level. So so yummy, you will love it.

The strain I used for the olive oil is called Dutch Treat. It’s a hybrid that I have been trying to find for a while now. With a THC level of 22 percent, this weed is intense, but not overpowering at all. It has an earthy taste and is also kind of sweet. It is a “happy” weed; I felt great all day. I made quite a bit of oil and I have a pot of tomato sauce — medicated of course — simmering as I write. I need to decide if I am going to medicate the meatballs. Do I dare? I love meatballs, this could be trouble. (But in a good way!)


Strong strains: Stevie Wonder checks in with a hefty THC content too (20 percent). How’s the smoke? (review)

Ham and cheddar panini

Serves 2

2 pieces of baguette cut 5-6 inches long, or 2 of your favorite rolls

2 tablespoons canna-olive oil

½ cup peppers, as spicy as you like, sliced into rounds

4 ounces cheddar, sliced

2 ounces ham, thinly sliced

Some arugula

1 tomato, thinly sliced

½ cup sauerkraut, drained

Directions

1. Heat the panini press or non-stick skillet. If you are going to use a skillet, have a plate or something heavy to press the sandwich down.

2. In a small skillet, heat the canna-olive oil and sauté the peppers. Set aside.

3. Layer the sandwiches with the ham, arugula and tomato. Top with the cheese, peppers and sauerkraut.

4. Grill until the cheese is melted and the bread is golden brown. Serve while warm so the cheese is all melty and beautiful.
