Potato Skin Poutine is a fun twist on this bar food staple and Canadian favorite.
If you didn’t think #potatoweek would come with a poutine recipe, then you clearly don’t know me very well. For day two of #potatoweek I’ve crossed two favorite bar snacks into one ultimate one. One Canadian favorite for imbibers everywhere meets another one that was popularized at casual dining restaurants mostly found on my side of the border.
When you sit and think about it the potato skin is the perfect vehicle for poutine. This boat of crispy potato goodness holds all that delicious brown gravy and squeaky cheese curds. There is also plenty of room to add some toppings to round it out as a complete meal. I just added a little crispy proscuitto, but smoked meat, pulled pork, grilled chicken or even roasted veggies would be perfect.
Poutine may be known as the ultimate hangover food, but I like to enjoy it anytime of the day and it doesn’t have to be a gut bomb either!
Before I share my recipe, I’d be a bad wife if I didn’t say anything today. A little peak back into my archives and you’ll always find a post on September 10th. Happy Birthday Braden!!! Last year you got Caramel Stout Brownies, this year you get one of your favorite things, poutine! I can get mushy but you guys came here for potatoes this week. Instead, I’m just going to pimp his new music project instead. Who here loves 90’s music? Well then you should watch these videos of The Alternatives!
