Savory Saturday: Welcome to Canada!

I need to represent the cuisine of Canada every once in a while.

There is a great CBC article on Canadian regional cuisine and I am really feeling this poutine experience this Saturday. I am going to be unhealthy, sorry!




  • 1 quart vegetable oil (for frying)
  • 1 (10 1/4 ounce) can beef gravy
  • 5 medium potatoes , cut into fries
  • 2 cups cheese curds


  1. Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep heavy skillet to 365°F (185°C).
  2. Warm gravy in saucepan or microwave.
  3. Place the fries into the hot oil, and cook until light brown, about 5 minutes.
  4. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
  5. Place the fries on a serving platter, and sprinkle the cheese over them.
  6. Ladle gravy over the fries and cheese, and serve immediately.


Mmmmm, greasy, cheesy, Canadian goodness.
