This poutine recipe is unforgettable!
This fries poutine recipe is a delicious meal to serve up for lunch or dinner but it can also be a pretty tasty appetizer too. I am a big fan of beef brisket and it’s so easy to prepare in the slow cooker. While the thick gravy was delicious in the original recipe, I wanted something a little lighter. My poutine recipe also has bacon, because, duh everything is better with bacon. Since cheese curds aren’t my thing and they aren’t readily found in my grocery store I used cubed Colby jack cheese and crumbled blue cheese.
The flavors are outstanding. The crispy French fries are coated in a delicate sauce-like gravy that drips from the shredded brisket. The Colby jack cheese melts over the brisket and the fries and is a mild counterpart to the tangy blue cheese that is complemented by the salty bacon. Forks and knives are optional in this meal. Just dig in with your fingers if you must! The best part about having this poutine recipe at home was when all the fries are gone, you can lick the skillet clean.
