Poutine is a true Canadian classic. Fries, cheese, gravy what’s not to love?
There are so many ways you can customize this Canadian favourite, we added Salami Bites to ours.

Ingredients

  • 1 pkg Grimm’s Original Salami Bites
  • 1 kg of frozen French fries 
  • 2 cups cheese curds
  • 2 cups gravy
  • 1 bunch green onions, a few stalks cut into 2-inch pieces, the rest sliced for garnishing

Gravy

  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 4 cups beef broth
  • 2 tsp tamari soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp corn starch
  • 3 tbsp water
  • salt
  • freshly ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. Gravy:  Melt butter and sauté green onion pieces in a saucepan until browned. Add beef broth and bring to a boil.  Turn down the heat and simmer until reduced to half.
  2. In the meantime, prepare french fries according to package instructions. Keep warm.
  3. Slice Grimm’s Original Salami Bites diagonally into 1/8-inch pieces and fry until crisp (about 2 minutes). Set aside.
  4. Discard green onions from the broth. Add tamari soy sauce, salt, and pepper to taste.
  5. Combine corn starch and water in a small bowl then add to broth.  Stir well until thickened. Remove from heat.
  6. Assemble poutine: Place half of the cooked french fries on a platter, scatter half of the cheese curds and pour half of the gravy over fries, repeat the process using the remaining half of those ingredients.  Top with Grimm’s Salami Bites and garnish with green onions. Enjoy immediately.
