Easy Poutine

This shop has been compensated by Inmar Intelligence and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. #mccainquickcook . One of my favorite dishes in the whole world is Poutine! Poutine is a Canadian specialty dish made from French Fries mixed with fresh cheese curds and warm brown gravy. I used McCain® Quick Cook Straight Cut Fries to make this Easy Poutine in a fraction of the time and it was a hit with my whole family.

Poutine usually requires making your own french fries first, which means peeling potatoes, cutting them up, and then frying. I just had a baby, so I don’t have a full day to spend cooking, anymore. Luckily, McCain makes it easy and convenient for me to make the delicious meals I want without spending a lot of time in the kitchen. McCain now makes a Quick Cook variety of fries that cook in half the time.*

Poutine made with McCain Quick Cook Straight Cut Fries

McCain Quick Cook Fries come in three varieties, crinkle cut, waffle, and straight cut. They are faster to prepare and easier to share! I tossed my fries with fresh cheese curds and then poured on some warm brown gravy once they were done cooking. It was amazing to eat on a cold winter day!

These fries cook quickly and no flipping required, which saves me the time of having to watch them. McCain Fries are made with 100% real potatoes and have no artificial flavors. I love keeping a couple of bags of these in the freezer to create a fast side dish or main dish like I did with this Poutine.

Sometimes I don’t have time to meal plan days in advance, and having these fries on hand makes it easy to whip something together fast that we enjoy!

What is Poutine?

Poutine is a French-Canadian dish traditionally made of French fries and fresh cheese curds, then covered with gravy.

I was able to easily find these McCain Quick Cook Fries in the freezer section of ShopRite by me! This is great, because who has time to shop around these days? I need my grocery store experience to be “in and out”.

Is there meat in poutine?

Poutine is usually made with a beef gravy, so it is not a vegetarian dish. However, I have tried many poutines made with a mushroom gravy and they are also super delicious.

I absolutely loved how fast I was able to get this delicious snack on the table for my family to enjoy! That is a reason to celebrate all on its own! Take a few minutes to make these delicious fries for a hot-from-the-oven dish the whole family will eat just as fast!
