Recipe by Colleen
"Poutine originated from rural Québec province in the 1950s.
I would say poutine is not second to any other food in Canada.
I order poutine when I go to diners, but I also buy fresh cheese curd to make my own at home.
Homemade gravy is really easy and quick to make.
The only rule I don't follow for authentic poutine is that I don't fry my French fries;
I bake them in the oven.
Be careful. This is very addictive!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

1 1/2 cups
salt and ground black pepper to taste

This would be much better with real homemade fries... The sauce wasn't right either, nothing like a real Quebec poutine.
Loved it! I could not find cheese curds anywhere, so I did use the suggested mozzarella instead. The gravy came together very easily and tasted great. The family devoured these! I will be keeping my eyes opened for the curds, as I would love to try them. This is a keeper~YUM! Thanks for sharing. :)
I couldn't get the consistency right for this, however, it was still delicious. We all thoroughly enjoyed it with the mozzarella cheese. Looked for cheese curds but have had no luck so far. Will keep looking though!
