Oh poutine. You cheesy, messy pile of curdiful goodness, a veritable and undervalued bastion of most noble Canadian cuisine. Truthfully you were top of my cravings, but your cheesy, wheaty, seed oil-y nature gave me self-preservationist pause... That is, until, alt cheese #2 was birthed, at which point I fulfilled my craving and then some for the next fifteen nights in a row. To all those similarly missing their poutine-filled winter nights (yes I realize it's fall), have at thee and rejoice.
  1. Prepare gravy in advance - heat up fat on medium heat, add flour to asborb the oil/create roux. Add broth/stock and whisk to incorporate all the flour bits until the mixture is smooth. Continue to cook over medium heat until gravy has thickened - season to taste.
  2. Clean and cut potatoes into fry-size slices.
  3. Heat up oil in deep pot.
  4. When oil is hot (a drop of water sizzles), begin adding fries in batches (don't overcrowd). Watch fries carefully and remove with a spider or slotted spoon once the fries have browned. Hit with salt and add 'cheese curds' while fries are still hot.
  5. Add gravy and serve (feel free to garnish with something green - this makes it healthy).
