Simple, cheesy, gooey and addicting this untraditional Poutine recipe is a fun and addicting dinner, appetizer or munchie recipe that you have to try once in your life.
I’m a Minnesota girl, so poutine has been around here for years. It’s native to Canada, but I mean we are so close that the tradition kinda just slid down here and we adopted it as one of our favorites.
Honestly, we started making Poutine about 8 years ago. Now I have never been the one who loved the brown gravy on the traditional Poutine, and a lot of the time we switch it up for our regular country gravy recipe, and let me just tell you it is amazing.
We are not opposed to having this poutine recipe any time of day, you can see that we have made a Breakfast Poutine recipe that we regularly eat and ADORE!!
Now this is one of those foods that are messy, gooey and delicious. I love munchie foods so much and this is one of my favorite go to late night snacks.
Some of my other fave munchie foods are:
Poutine is really simple to make. Like crazy simple. Thats kinda why we have it here so often. My kids go crazy for it and we usually make a huge batch and just serve it on a platter and we all eat off of it with forks.
INGREDIENTS YOU NEED:
- French fries
- Shredded cheese
- Cheese curds
- Brown gravy mix (or homemade)
HOW SIMPLE! Now let me show you how even more simple it gets
HOW TO MAKE POUTINE:
- Cook french fries according to package directions (we like to deep fry ours, more for the crunch).
- Once fries are cooked, drain on paper towels and spread onto large serving platter.
- Immediately sprinkle with cheese and top with cheese curds.
- Make your brown gravy mix according to package directions and then drizzle over your French fries and cheese.
- Sprinkle with some parsley if desired and devour.
You guys…seriously though. Best. Munchie. Food. Ever. It’s quick and simple to whip up and it feeds a crowd, and sometimes one when I’m really in the mood to smash this stuff, it happens more than you think.
Now like I said we like to switch it up with our country gravy and I really encourage you to try that version as well. All you need for that is some butter, flour, milk, salt and pepper.
Pretty much the gravy used to make biscuits and gravy. And we all know that gravy is addicting on it’s own. So I mean over fries with cheese, you will be in heaven.
Traditional Poutine recipes usually don’t call for shredded cheese, but we have never had it any other way. We love the added cheese, because simple fact, cheese is life.
TIPS AND TRICKS:
- Use any type of fries you like, you may find you love some more than the others.
- Make brown gravy from scratch, this is super easy, but we like the quicker version of using a packet.
- Try using country gravy, it is so good.
- Use deep fried cheese curds instead of fresh, give you some added crunch and texture to this dish.
So if you want that food that will warm the belly, entice your tastebuds and just make you happy all over then this Poutine recipe is just what you have been looking for.
