Sue's Poutine

Crispy fries topped  with soft cheese curds and gravy. A Canadian favorite.

The gravy is lighter in this one than you might expect from being made with beef gravy, because I use a lighter blend of stock so that the beef flavor doesn't overpower the cheese. It works for me. :)
Sorry about the bright photo- I accidentally bumped a setting on my camera without noticing.


  • 24 ounces frozen krinkle-cut french fries, baked or fried as directed on package
  • 10=12 ounces soft yellow cheddar cheese curds (if you must, use 10-12 ounces crumbled/cubed cheddar or colby cheese, warmed to room temperature)
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 6 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons A-1 steak sauce
  • salt and black pepper to taste
  1. Prepare fries and place on serving plate.
  2. Sprinkle with cheese curds.
  3. Top with gravy.

Serves 3-4


  1. Sue, apparently I am enjoying your recipes for the Quebec round :) This is another winner. Great flavors, and easy to make. Thanks for sharing! CQ2 - Starrynews

  2. I've never had cheese curds or poutine before so this was a brand new experience for me. I made homemade fries but followed the directions otherwise. Thanks for sharing, Sue. Made for Culinary Quest 2.
