Classic Thanksgiving Dressing

At JWC, we are thankful for family-focused holidays and traditions that bring people together! This month’s recipe features two variations of the beloved Thanksgiving dinner staple: the dressing! Serves 6.

Optional: this recipe incorporates cannabutter for the cannabis-infused variation, however, to make this recipe family-friendly, just remove the 1 tbsp cannabutter and increase regular unsalted butter to 6 tablespoons. You can find our cannabutter recipe here.

Always consume cannabis responsibly.


  • Large non-stick frying pan/skillet
  • Baking sheet
  • Tin foil
  • Oven-safe 9 x 13 inch baking dish
  • Flexible spatula


  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, plus extra for baking dish
  • 1 tablespoon prepared cannabutter
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 2 ribs of celery, finely chopped
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh sage
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh thyme
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh parsley
  • 1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
  • 1 loaf good-quality white sandwich bread, approximately 600g (we like Ace Bakery’s Organic White Oval), cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 2 cups chicken or turkey stock, homemade of low sodium variety preferred
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 300° F.
  2. Spread bread cubes in an even layer on baking sheet. Bake for 30-40 minutes until bread is dry and crisp, but not browned.
  3. Increase oven temperature to 400°F. Coat 9 x 13 baking dish with unsalted butter and set aside.
  4. In large pan/skillet, heat butter and cannabutter over medium heat. Add onions, celery and ½ teaspoon salt, cook until softened, 5-7 minutes. Add garlic and stir, cooking until fragrant.
  5. Mix in sage, thyme, parsley and poultry seasoning and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute longer.
  6. Transfer mixture to a large mixing bowl, using a flexible spatula to thoroughly scrape pan.
  7. Mix in stock and beaten eggs to combine. Season with ½ teaspoon of salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.
  8. Add dried bread to bowl and mix gently to distribute ingredients and evenly coat bread. Dump mixture into prepared baking dish and distribute evenly.
  9. Cover with foil and bake for 20 minutes. Carefully remove foil and continue baking until golden brown, approximately 25 minutes longer. Let stand at room temperature for 5-10 minutes before serving.

Cannabinoid Content:

262.5mg/¼ cup= 65.625 mg/Tablespoon ÷ 6 servings = 10.9 mg/serving

These calculations are approximate and are based on our cannabutter recipe, which you can find here. Always consume responsibly.

Remember, it can take anywhere between 60-180 minutes for you to begin to feel the effects of ingested cannabis and the effects may be felt up to 8+ hours after consumption. The JWC family reminds you to always consume responsibly.

With any cannabis-infused edibles, the general rule is to start with a low amount, and only increase slowly. Here at JWC, we would like to remind you that determining your dosage should be based on the information provided to you on your medical document. Do not change your dosage without first consulting with your healthcare provider. As always, make sure that your edibles are properly labelled and are stored out of reach of children and pets. When working with edible, cannabis-infused products, try to understand and maintain the ratios between the amount of cannabis and the butter or oil being infused. If your cannabis butter or oil is potent, consider reducing the amount used in your recipe by using a mix of infused and regular butter.
