Oven-Fry Poutine with Mushroom Gravy

March/April 2011

Your rating: None Average: 4.4 (13 votes)

Poutine (pu-teen)—fries topped with gravy and cheese curds—is a French-Canadian fast-food classic. Our lighter version features crispy oven-fried potatoes topped with just enough sharp cheese and a grease-free gravy that’s chock-full of fresh mushrooms.

Experimenting with Roasted Cauliflower as a potato substitute. Added seasoning & sauteed green/red pepper/onion mix before roasting.
USING WHAT's ON-HAND: Will make gravy with salt-free seasonings, low sodium/fat beef broth, & corn starch. For cost and calorie control, I will using my fav shredded white pizza cheese. It's creamier than plain shredded mozz. Can't wait to try it!

Delicious!

One of my all-time favorites.

Memorably creamy & delicious, highly reminiscent of some of the best poutine I've tasted throughout Quebec, but with a healthier twist. I used heirloom fingerling potatoes and this came out simply wonderful.

Note - make sure you eat it all right away - this does not refrigerate or freeze well. This would not have been an issue if I hadn't hoped to have some for lunch the next day.

Not poutine

First of all, it's pronounced "pu-tin", look it up so you know.

Second, it's not poutine if it's not french fries, with brown gravy and mozzarella cheese curds. What you have is just potatoes with some mushroom gravy. You can still make a healthier poutine ("pu-tin") that is authentic.

Its PU-TIN, if you're from

Its PU-TIN, if you're from French Canada. The rest of the country calls it POO TEEN. So, deal with it.

This is also a healthy variation, so you should probably deal with that too. Ya know, since French fries are made from potatoes.

I'd like to see your rendition of a "healthy authentic poutine."

another great way to eat potatoes

Our grocery store has small packed bags (24 oz) of baby potatoes. I used baby reds and quartered them, which made tiny fries. But they were done after using the maximum cooking time. I used vegetable base for the gravy and it was savory and wonderful. I served it with salad and we had just enough for two adults and three kids.

crispy, gravy-licious yumminess
