How to Make Poutine Fries

  • Bake 1 package frozen French fries according to instructions on the bag. We like to use Air Fryer Frozen French Fries. Once the fries are ready, add them to the greased baking dish.

  • Leftover roast beef adds so much flavor to classic poutine.
  • If you can't find or would rather not use cheese curds, use low moisture mozzarella cheese instead.
