365 Things to do with Potatoes: Episode Nine


It’s one of those things that no matter what you do to it, it pretty much looks like dog food. But, when you try it. It tastes like heaven.

Poutine is basically three components:

French fries


Cheese Curd

I do a really bastardized version. If you follow this link:


to get a very. very legit poutine recipe.

But, if you’re not Canadian, or into the very legitness of things, follow my instructions for VERY cheap and delicious poutine.

French Fries. Crispy ones, like, go to the Dollar Tree and get the steak-cut french fries there and deep fry them.

Then add gravy. Chicken gravy, brown gravy, turkey gravy, doesn’t matter. Add as much or as little as you want, you can treat the gravy like ketchup or seriously put enough in to make it like soup.

Then you drop your cheese on top. I’m a really big fan of Cheddar, which I think is the kind of cheese curd you’re supposed to put on it.

Then broil it and get the cheese melty.

Beware, the bowl will be hot.
