Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep heavy skillet to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C).

  • While the oil is heating, begin to warm gravy.

  • Place fries into the hot oil, and cook until light brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Cook fries in batches if necessary to allow them room to move a little in the oil. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

  • Place fries on a serving platter, and sprinkle cheese over them. Ladle warmed gravy over the fries and cheese, and serve immediately.


Add cut-up cooked chicken or hamburger.

Use shredded mozzarella cheese in place of cheese curds.

Italian Poutine: Substitute marinara for gravy.

BBQ Poutine: Substitute a light BBQ sauce for gravy.

Editor's Note:

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. Amount will vary depending on cooking time and temperature, ingredient density, and specific type of oil used.
