Easy Homemade Poutine [RECIPE]

Good Morning Friends!

A few days ago my husband and I were snuggled up when a conversation occurred that went something like this:

Him: Babe, what was that dish that you told me about once…..

Me: Which one?

Him: It’s like… french fries and gravy….

Me: Poutine?

Him: Yeah!! How do you make that? Can you make that one night soon? I want to try it!

Me: Challenge accepted.

Well, last night was that night. This traditional Canadian dish is made with 3 ingredients: brown gravy, french fries, and cheese curds. I made brown gravy from scratch, sliced up some potatoes into wedges, and used crumbled goat cheese for my cheese curds. Was it traditional? Probably not. But the flavors were absolutely divine and the family was oh, so satisfied. So the next time you’re craving some pure comfort food, give this recipe a try and let me know what you think. Have a beautiful Tuesday everyone! Stay tuned for more delicious recipes, and until then, keep on cooking! ❤

Easy Homemade Poutine

Serves: 4

Ingredients: 

For the potatoes: 

  • 8 medium potatoes, sliced into wedges
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried rosemary
  • Salt and black pepper to taste

For the gravy: 

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons beef bouillon
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper

For the cheese: 

  • 1 (4-ounce) package goat cheese, crumbled into small chunks

Instructions: 

  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees (F)/ 200 degrees (C)/ Gas Mark 6.
  2. Slice the potatoes into wedges and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with olive oil, then sprinkle with dried rosemary, salt, and black pepper. Bake for 1 hour in the oven.
  3. Meanwhile, grab a medium sauce pot to make the gravy.
  4. Begin melting the butter over medium heat. Then add your flour and mix into a roux. Add in the beef bouillon. Mix well to combine.
  5. Mix in 4 cups of milk. Then add the Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, and black pepper.
  6. Continue mixing and increase heat slowly until the liquid begins to form into a gravy. (This took me about 8-10 minutes). Once the gravy forms, cut off your heat and move your pot to a cool eye.
  7. Now it’s time to assemble! Place a few cooked potato wedges on a plate. Crumble goat cheese over the top. Then drizzle generously with brown gravy and chow down!! You’ve earned it! ❤
