Directions

  1. Place your protein or veggie of choice on each half toasted English muffin.
  2. Boil a small pot of water and add salt and vinegar. Place a ladle into the boiling water and crack an egg into it. Turn the heat down to medium. The eggs will coagulate in the vinegar water.
  3. After 3 minutes, remove with a slotted spoon and gently place on top of protein or veggie.
  4. Blend egg yolk, lemon juice, salt, and pepper in a blender on high for 20 seconds. Then slowly start drizzling melted butter and canna-butter in a thin stream until fully incorporated.
  5. Once the sauce is thick and creamy, gently spoon over eggs, garnish with chives, and serve immediately.
  6. Enjoy!

 

*Note: The amount of cannabutter specified in this recipe is a very loose suggestion; the actual amount you use should be modified based on the strength of your butter and the potency you desire. Dosing homemade edibles can be tricky (click here to learn why), so the best way to test for potency is to start with one portion of a serving, wait one to two hours, then make an informed decision on whether to consume more. Always dose carefully and listen to your body, and never drive under the influence of cannabis.
