All right, all right, all right. 4/20 is finally here, and with it, the perfect excuse to chow down on some serious snacks (as if you needed one, but still). However you spend the "holiday," we encourage you to let loose and make room for some of these epic recipes.

We're talking about greasy breakfast sandwiches, grilled cheeses like you've never seen them and a cinnamon roll-doughnut mash-up you've only ever dreamed of.

Snap out of that foggy haze and feed your hunger—or get a really, really good friend to do it for you if you just can't get off the couch.

  • Everything Bagel Grilled Cheese
    Don't worry, you're not being paranoid (or maybe you are, but in any case): This bagel sandwich is in fact inside out, and it's brilliant. Gooey cheese holds onto all that amazing seasoning instead of sliding off and creating an even bigger mess on your table. Enjoy.

  • Crackle
    If you make desserts from one pastry chef today, choose Christina Tosi, the mastermind behind Milk Bar. If you need convincing, get a load of this crunchy Crack Pie® brittle. You may need to ration this one, or just make extra.

  • Homer Murray's Nachos with Cheese Sauce
    No munchies fest is complete without nachos, and chef Homer Murray's are the way to go. If you're feeling a little too lethargic to make your own queso from scratch, none of us will judge if you go with Velveeta.

  • Cinnamon Roll Doughnuts
    Doughnuts and cinnamon rolls aren't enough today. You're going to need to combine them for the ultimate breakfast mash-up. Just try getting off the couch after one (or four) of these guys.

  • Nutella-Stracchino Grilled Sandwich
    Add chocolate to your gourmet grilled cheese like Joe Carroll of St. Anselm and Fette Sau, and never look back.

  • The Ultimate Breakfast Sandwich
    What do Sriracha butter, an English muffin and bacon all have in common? They make up the most amazing breakfast sandwich in the universe. It's a little McDonald's and a little grown-up, striking the perfect balance for you today—and always.

  • Pastrami Waffles
    Need we say anything more? We needn't, but we will. This creation comes to you from Lt. Waffle's Anthony Myint and is inspired by latkes and the pastrami from Mission Chinese. OK, that's really all that needs to be said.

  • Duck-Fat Chex® Mix
    Duck, duck, GOOD LORD, this snack is going to go fast. You can say sayonara to regular Chex® Mix after this, because it's never going to live up.

  • Tagalongs®-Inspired Peanut Butter-Chocolate Pie
    While you're making better versions of your favorite snacks, check out this Girl Scout cookie-inspired cake. Prepare to enter chocolate-peanut butter nirvana and wake up sometime tomorrow with the pie tin scraped clean. So long!
