Make authentic Canadian Poutine right at home with homemade french fries, a simple and delicious brown gravy, and cheese curds or melted mozzarella cheese. Additions include bacon, pulled pork, avocado, and more!
Add the fries to the oil in batches, don’t overcrowd them. Fry for about 5 minutes, then place them on a paper towel lined plate. This is enough to cook them through without browning the outside yet and is the best method for extra crispy fries.
Increase heat to 400 degrees and fry in batches a second time, until they are crispy and golden brown on the outside. Place on paper towels.
Add the Cheese and Bake
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line the fries on a baking sheet and sprinkle the cheese on top.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is just melted.
