Cheese poutine

French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy, an easy to make recipe that's a Canadian classic. A hearty snack or side dish which is sure to deliver. 


2 lb potato (russet potatoes, unpeeled, cut into 1/4" sticks)
  pk cheese curds (Cheddar cheese curds)


Heat the oil in a pan to 325 degrees Fahrenheit then remove the potatoes fro the water and dry them.

Fry the potatoes in batches for 1 1/2 minutes each and transfer them to a paper towel afterwards.

Make sure oil is at 325 degrees Fahrenheit before putting in each batch.

After all the batches are done raise the oil heat to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and go through the same frying process in the hotter oil.

As soon as a batch is done, dry quickly then put on a plate with a handful of cheese curds.
