Trial: Poutine

Poutine! If you aren’t familiar with poutine, it is a Canadian delicacy of fries, gravy, and cheese curds. Originally from Quebec, it is common in most restaurants here. Weirdly, I only started eating it about 5 months ago. However, I don’t want to always to go to a restaurant just to have poutine. 


Annnnnnnnnnd then I found out the Clubhouse has a poutine gravy mix! This is a super easy recipe, if we are calling it a recipe. It is fries, gravy, and cheese curds- some cheapo restaurants will use shredded cheese but those are abhorrent businesses that shouldn’t be able to sell food. (We Canadians feel strongly about about curds vs. shredded.)


  1. Bake fries.
  2. Cook gravy (gravy mix plus 2 cups of water).
  3. Put fries on plate or in bowl, place cheese curds on top.
  4. Pour gravy on top of cheese curds and fries.
  5. Say sorry 3 times and yell “Go Jets Go!”!


I know some people make their own poutine gravy, but I find that spices are more difficult for me to mix, especially given that I’m new to the poutine game.

Do you have any favourite Canadian foods?

Until tomorrow,
The Historian!
