Traditional Canadian Poutine

Every so often I CRAVE a real Poutine!

And those fast food joints really fail at satisfying my craving.

So I will make these at home, the traditional way.

Which is super simple!

These fries are baked not fried and are super crispy on the outside, yet soft on the inside. 


Us Canadians invented this delicious snack.


Specifically the Québécois came up with it and since then it has become very popular across Canada and into the Northeastern United States.

  • You will want to start with a cast iron skillet, it heats up perfectly and helps the fries to crisp up faster. 
  • Then you will want to dice the fries on a large cutting board and place them into a large bowl of cold water. 
  • Leave the fries in the water for 30 minutes to ensure the starch is removed as much as possible from the fries. This helps the fries to be more crispy too. 
  • Next, dry the fries with a paper towel or kitchen towel.
  • Place the fries onto a cast iron skillet or cooking sheet and season with pepper and a little olive oil.
  • Bake at 375 f for roughly 20 minutes till golden brown. 
  • Then once the fries have cooked, add the cheese curds and pour over the canned BEEF gravy.
  • Place back in the oven at 375 f for 10 minutes more minutes or until the cheese has melted.

Rule of thumb is to use “Russet potatoes” they are the best for french fries across the board.

YES, they can be. Depending on what kind of diet plan you may be on. You may want to look for a low sodium gravy. Being it is baked not fried, the fries are really good for you. 

If you have never used an air fryer, now is the best time to start. Because they are more affordable now than ever before.  


General rule of thumb for a conventional oven is setting it to 375 f and cooking the fries for 30 minutes. 

  • 40 for extra crispy
  • 35 minutes for crispy fries
  • 25 for more soft


Yes, and it is tastes just the same the next day!

Beef Gravy is MUST!
