Method – How to Make Poutine at Home

For the Fries 

  • The potatoes should first be peeled before being sliced and then cut into equal pieces. Put them in a basin of ice water to stop oxidation.
  • Wash the sliced potatoes at least 3 times or until the water runs clear. Drain them when they are clean. After the last drain, lay the fries on a paper towel and wipe dry with another paper towel. Leave to thoroughly dry on a paper towel.
  • Fry the fries in batches for about 7-8 minutes, or until they just start to brown, in 325F vegetable oil in a heavy-bottomed pot.
  • Drain excess oil from the french fries and place the fries in a cooling rack while spreading them in a single layer and set on a rimmed baking sheet. Continue the process until all of the potato fries are par-fried. Allow 30 minutes for cooling.
  • Repeat this process in batches for 4-5 minutes, or until they are golden brown and crispy, in 350°F hot oil.
  • Drain the fries of excess oil and lay them back on the wire rack before transferring them to a bowl to the season with salt.

For the Gravy 

  • Melt the unsalted butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until it is just bubbling.
  • Toss in the all-purpose flour and with a whisk, mix for 2 minutes or until the mixture turns a little brown.
  • Whisk together the beef stock, Worcestershire sauce, onion powder, garlic powder, oregano, basil, salt, and pepper.
  • Allow the gravy to simmer until the beef bouillon has dissolved and the sauce begins to thicken.
  • To the cornstarch, add the water to create a slurry and add it to the gravy.  
  • The gravy will thicken quickly and have a nice glossy texture. Reduce the heat to low and continue to cook until ready to serve.


  • Fill your serving dish with fries and top with cheese curds. Ladle on hot gravy and top with freshly cracked black pepper and parsley.

  • 4 baked potatoes

  • 1 tbsp butter

  • The first step is to cut each potato lengthwise into four slabs. Next, slice each slab into fries that are approximately a centimetre thick.
  • Put the fries in a dish of cold water to keep them crisp. Drain the fries and pat them dry before using. This will make sure that the oil and spices will adhere.
  • Set the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Add the paprika, garlic salt, and a few tablespoons of olive oil to the dish of fries.
  • Roll the fries around in the coating to coat evenly. To guarantee that the fries get crispy, spread them out on two baking sheets, ensuring each fry is in touch with a sheet.
  • For 50 minutes, cook the fries. Flip the fries and rotate the trays every 20 minutes. For a tip, use a thin spatula to lift the fries off the oven pan so you can turn them.
  • Fry both types of bacon in a non-greased skillet over medium-high heat to begin making the gravy while the fries are cooking. Once crispy, remove the bacon and let it cool on a dish with a paper towel covering. Maintain the grease.
  • Add the butter to the bacon fat for the sauce or gravy and let it melt. Once the flour is added, mix until paste forms. Stir while adding the garlic until it begins to smell.
  • Finally, stir in the beer, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, maple syrup, and salt to taste. Allow thickening over low heat.
  • Layer the fries, cheese curds, and bacon bits on one baking sheet to make the poutine. Then pour in the gravy and return to the oven for 5 minutes, or until the cheese is melted.
