This isn't the real Canadian poutine recipe - you use cheese curds instead of shredded Cheddar. However, I tried it, and the difference just doesn't compare. You can find cheese curds at a specialty grocery store, dairy, etc. It is also recommended that you make your own gravy for best results, overall I wasn't impressed with this recipe, it turned out mushy too. Will not be making this again.


OMG I love poutine and freaked out when I saw this recipe. I like to deep fry fresh fries and I buy poutine gravy from Canada but it is more like chicken gravy then beef and you cant get the correct cheese in th US but cubed white chedder works best. You can buy St. Hubert poutine gravy mix online as well as cheese curd. You have to have it the right way to appreciate it.


Poutine was originally created with cheese curd and real beef gravy. This recipe is incorrect and I suggest you do some research on poutine if you would like to try the real deal ;) It's very delicious with cheese curd- cheddar cheese is wrong. You MUST use white cheese curd or you're not having poutine.
