As you probably know by know, I live in Quebec Canada, and poutine is a dish that originated here in Quebec Canada. This dish consist of french fries, topped with curds cheese and gravy. It’s not the healthiest meal, but its comfort food at its best. If it was for my husband, we would be having poutine every night for supper, but don’t worry, this is a treat that we only have once in a while.
- 5 large potatoes cut into fries
- Water for soaking
- 2 cups of curd cheese
- 1/4 cup of butter
- 1/4 cup of flour
- 2 cans of beef consommé (284 ml)

- 1/2 cup of water
- 1 garlic clove minced
- 3 tablespoons of ketchup
- 2 tablespoons of sugar

Just by looking at the picture and writing this post, my mouth is watering. My husband is like the king of poutine, every new restaurant he goes to, he has to try their poutine. So from a chip stand to a gourmet restaurant, he has tried a lot of poutine’s, but this is the best poutine he’s had so far. Yes, it’s that good!!!
