Ask someone to name Canada’s national dish and they will immediately say ‘Poutine’. Poutine is not only the national dish, it is also from Quebec, so having spent years avoiding this dish it was finally time to give it a shot.

You may ask why I had been avoiding it? To me, there was something about cheese curds and gravy with chips that seemed wrong. Why would you put chips with gravy? And who on earth thought to put cheese curds in there? And what exactly are cheese curds?

So all I had to do was find three ingredients. Chips – check, gravy – check and cheese curds. Mmm cheese curds or ‘squeaky cheese’. Not easily sourced in your local supermarket but I did eventually find a tub of soft jersey curds. I wondered if they were supposed to be soft for the recipe but I had to make do with what I could get my hands on.

So armed with my three ingredients I made Poutine. And how wrong was I?! I take it all back – not only was it bizarrely deliciously, think chips served in a creamy meat stew sauce, it only took 15 minutes to make. No wonder it is Canada’s favourite fast food.

Steps

1

Cook the chips as directed on the packet. We made sure ours were crispy rather than soggy. Takes about 12 minutes.

When the chips are cooked, serve on to a plate, top with cheese curds and cover with gravy. Bon Appetit!!
