My older daughter wanted to try to make homemade Poutine this weekend, and this is the result! For the uninitiated, poutine consists of fries, cheese curds and gravy. It originated in Quebec, but is popular across the rest of Canada as well.
I sliced baking potatoes into fry-shaped pieces, drizzled them with olive oil and salt, and baked them at 450 for 13 minutes, flipped them, and gave them another 12 minutes in the oven. Sprinkle with cheese and put back in the oven for a couple minutes. (if you are frying your potatoes instead of baking them, the heat from the oil will likely be hot enough to melt the cheese curds, but we had to add heat to make our cheese gooey). Add some gravy (ours was leftover beef and onion gravy, with a bit of chicken gravy added). Enjoy!
