Authentic Canadian Poutine Recipe

 This Authentic Canadian Poutine recipe is so simple and fun to make!  Your family is sure to love it.  AND with Gardner's famous, squeaky-fresh cheese curds, it's guaranteed to be a hit!

Without further ado.


For the gravy
• 3 tbs butter
• 1/4 cup flour
• 4 cups beef broth
• salt & pepper, to taste

For the fries
• 2 lbs potatoes
• 1-2 cups canola or vegetable oil
(amount depends on the size of your pan, you just need enough to barely cover the potato slices)

Top with cheese curds!*

*personal recommendation: put the cheese curds in the microwave for about 5-10 seconds beforehand to get 'em a little soft and melty, also releases the true squeak!


1. Heat medium-sized saucepan on med heat, add butter and stir until melted.

2. Add 1/4 cup flour to the melted butter and stir thoroughly until it is well mixed.

3. Add 4 cups beef broth and salt and pepper to your liking, then stir.

4. Bring to a simmer and then put it aside, but keep it warm for later.

5. Cut potatoes into long thin slices, about 1/4" to 1/2" thick.

6. In a large frying pan, heat 1-2 cups of canola or vegetable oil on med-high heat.

7. Carefully add potatoes to the frying oil.  Cook until golden brown.

8. Remove potatoes from oil, pat excess oil with a paper towel.

9. Pour the gravy over the stack of fries, add cheese curds on top, and enjoy!
