Traditional Poutine consists of french fries and cheese curds topped with a brown gravy consumed by our neighbors to the north. Usually late at night after the bars close.
Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon
Juusto “baked cheese” with Nueske’s bacon crumbles
Begin with French fries. I like to use russet fresh cut and double fry them.
In a cast iron skillet fry one half pound of Nueske’s Applewood Smoked Bacon.
Remove bacon and add a couple of tablespoons of butter and flour to bacon drippings one tablespoon at a time.
Over medium low heat whisk until you have a nice roux.
Add milk to the roux a cup at a time. About two cups.
Stir until thickened.
Add salt and pepper to taste. I like McCormick’s Hot Shot.
Crumble cooked bacon and chop up a 6 oz package of Juusto ”‘baked cheese” with Nueske’s bacon crumbles
Pile it all together alternating fries, cheese, bacon and top with hot bacon gravy and more BACON.
