  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 35m

4 servings, about 3/4 cup potatoes & 1/3 cup gravy each

Poutine (pu-teen)—fries topped with gravy and cheese curds—is a French-Canadian fast-food classic. Our lighter version features crispy oven-fried potatoes topped with just enough sharp cheese and a grease-free gravy that’s chock-full of fresh mushrooms and shallots.


  • For Oven-Fry Poutine with Mushroom Gravy :
  • 1 1/2 pounds new or baby potatoes, scrubbed and cut into quarters
  • 5 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/4 plus 1/8 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced-sodium beef broth or mushroom broth, divided
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped cremini or white mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped chives
  • 1/2 cup shredded extra-sharp cheddar


Position a rack in the lower third of the oven; preheat to 450 degrees F.

Combine the potatoes, 2 teaspoons oil and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl; toss to coat. Spread evenly on a rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring once or twice, until the potatoes are tender and browned, 20 to 25 minutes.

Whisk 1/2 cup broth and the flour in a small bowl; set aside.

Heat the remaining 3 teaspoons oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and onion and cook, stirring often, until beginning to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the remaining 1 cup broth; bring to a simmer. Cook until reduced by about half, 8 to 10 minutes.

Add the reserved flour and broth mixture; cook, stirring constantly, until smooth and thickened, 1 to 3 minutes. Stir in the chives and the remaining 1/8 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper; keep warm on low heat.

When the potatoes are done, push them together in the center of the pan and sprinkle with the cheese. Return to the oven; bake until the cheese is melted, about 5 minutes more. Serve the potatoes topped with the gravy.
