Today’s not just the start of a new month; it also happens to be Canada Day. In honor of the holiday, why not prepare a batch of poutine? This regional dish starts with fresh french fries that are doused in gravy and cheese curds. Though it sounds and looks a little out there, poutine will be your new favorite junk food. From POPSUGAR Food Poutine IngredientsFor fries: 2 tablespoons duck fat or butter 2 pounds baking potatoes, such as russet, skin left on and sliced into 1/2-inch matchsticks Salt, to taste For gravy: 6 ounces pork sausage 2 tablespoons flour 1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted 2 cups beef broth 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt For poutine: 2 ounces cheese curds 1 tablespoon parsley Directions Make the fries: Preheat oven to 450ºF. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Toss baking potatoes with duck fat or butter until well-combined; spread into an even layer and season with salt to taste. Bake 45 minutes or until browned, flipping halfway through. Meanwhile, make the gravy: While the fries are baking, brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat. While sausage is browning, combine flour and butter and mix thoroughly. Once sausage is brown, incorporate roux; slowly add beef broth and bring gravy to a boil. Once boiling, add salt, then reduce heat to medium-low, simmering several minutes until sauce thickens. Assemble the poutine: Top fries with gravy; crumble cheese curds atop pork gravy. Top with fresh parsley. Serve immediately. Information Category Snacks, Other Cuisine North American Yield Serves 4 print recipe
