"Courtesy of us old-time students from Fenelon Falls - this is how I ate poutine almost every day in my high school days (oh, the memories!). People say real poutine must have mozzarella cheese curds - I emphatically disagree! In every restaurant I've been to in Ontario, they use shredded cheese. If you're like me and prefer the English-Canadian version (non-cheese curds) and want to try something different, try this!"

  1. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry potatoes in batches in the hot oil until tender and golden brown, about 5 minutes. Remove to drain on a plate lined with paper towels.
  2. Heat gravy in a small saucepan over medium heat until heated through, about 5 minutes.
  3. Spread a layer of fries into two bowls, sprinkle with cheese and add a small amount of gravy; repeat these layers once. Squirt each serving with 1 tablespoon mayonnaise and 1 1/2 teaspoons ketchup. Sprinkle each bowl with half the lettuce; season with salt and pepper.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • Of course you can just make it with the fries, cheese and gravy, but anyone could figure that out! This is what my friends and I used to call Big Mac poutine! Prep time really just depends on whether you make the ingredients or buy them from the store. I prefer frozen fries for this mixture and fresh gravy is always better.
  • Editor's Note:
  • We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

Hubby is in hog heaven. I used frozen french fries and homemade gravy. I didn't use the mayonnaise, just ketchup but mayo & ketchup mixed together would be good. He laughed at the little bit of lettuce I put on the side, "What is that? Trying to make this look healthy?" The Big Mac Poutine comment in the Cook's Note explained the lettuce, mayo ketchup - of course I didn't see that until after I made this. Thanks for a fun recipe, Robyn.
