Recipe Tips

Poutine, a favorite diner food or filling snack in the hockey arenas of Canada, has made a huge appearance in the U.S. Typically made with French fries, roasted whole bite-size potatoes are an even better homemade option—no deep fryer needed.
Stirring in an extra spoonful of beef base into the gravy will enrich it. But go ahead and serve up your favorite jarred gravy if you’re pressed for time.
If you prefer, you can mix 2 teaspoons beef base with 2 cups hot water in place of the beef broth.
