We brought French fries home from a pub the other day, because they were just too good to throw away. And so, after a few of them were snacked on I decided to have fun and make up a dish. I love making frittatas and I love poutine. I put the two of them together and came up with this. Now…this is not for someone who’s watching their weight. This might not even be for someone with a heart problem. This is a decadent dish. I’d spent the morning with the snow blower and shovel, and I deserved poutine!
For anyone who doesn’t know what poutine is, it’s a dish born out of Quebec in the 1950’s. Poutine is French fries, covered by 50% cheese curds and 50% brown gravy. I didn’t have cheese curds, but I had shredded cheddar cheese, and I had brown gravy. While the frittata was in the oven and getting firm, I dropped the fries and cheese on top, then covered it with gravy when I took it out of the oven. I served it with sliced avocadoes and pink grapefruit. Delicious!
