Chic Poutine

Chic Poutine

Potatoes and cheese with gravy.

Poutine is a dish typical of Quebec, consisting of French fries topped with fresh cheese curds, and covered with a brown BBQ gravy. This "chic" version is healthier, since the potatoes are sautéed rather then fried.

2 potatoes, peeled and cut into 1,5 cm pieces   400 g
2 tsp canola oil   10 mL
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
50 g Emmenthal cheese, grated   2/3 cup
1/2 cup demi-glace sauce   125 mL


  1. Prepare the potatoes: Peel, then dice them into 1,5 cm pieces.
  2. Heat the oil in a pan over medium heat, add the potatoes and sauté with frequent stirring, until the potatoes are a light golden colour, about 5 min.
