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.

Poutine Ingredients For 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:

  1. Preheat oven to 450ºF.
  2. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil.
  3. Toss baking potatoes with duck fat or butter until well-combined; spread into an even layer and season with salt to taste.
  4. Bake 45 minutes or until browned, flipping halfway through.

Meanwhile, make the gravy:

  1. While the fries are baking, brown the sausage in a large skillet over medium heat.
  2. While sausage is browning, combine flour and butter and mix thoroughly.
  3. Once sausage is brown, incorporate roux; slowly add beef broth and bring gravy to a boil.
  4. Once boiling, add salt, then reduce heat to medium-low, simmering several minutes until sauce thickens.

Assemble the poutine:

  1. Top fries with gravy; crumble cheese curds atop pork gravy.
  2. Top with fresh parsley.
  3. Serve immediately.
