“This is a healthier version of the French Canadian dish, poutine. While this recipe contains cream, it is much lower in fat than traditional poutine. This gravy also goes well with beef, chicken or pasta. When we had this, we found that the amount of potatoes just wasn't enough so you may want to increase the amount. This delicious recipe is from Alberta Health Services. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F On a large rimmed baking sheet, drizzle potatoes with oil, tossing to coat them well. Bake for about 20 minutes, stirring once or twice, until golden. Sprinkle with salt and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, heat about a tablespoon of oil and the butter in a large, heavy skillet set over medium-high heat. When the foaming subsides, add the mushrooms and rosemary or thyme, sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms release their liquid and start to brown.
  3. Sprinkle the mushrooms with flour and cook for a minute or two, stirring to coat the mushrooms, until the flour browns. Add the stock and brink to a boil, stirring for at least a minute, until the gravy thickens. If you like, add the cream and remove from heat.
  4. Serve the potatoes topped with gravy and cheese curds.
