Playful Poutine Recipes

No other food screams 'Canadian' like a plate of steaming hot, delicious poutine, but this Canada Day, switch up your go-to dish with these creative and yummy alternatives. Whether you want to treat your party guests to some gourmet snacking, or you're looking to get wild by throwing some unexpected ingredients into the mix, these recipes are a perfect way to experiment with the classic Canadian dish.


Poutine Baked Potatoes 

Who says poutine has to be made with french fries? Instead, the next time you bake potatoes, top them with poutine gravy and cheese curds. Not only is this a smart alternative to french fries, but it's sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.

Sweet Potato Poutine 

Feeling a bit guilty about indulging in poutine? Switch it up and use sweet potato fries instead. The result is just as delicious and your waistline will appreciate the change. Plus it's full of the good stuff like dietary fibre and vitamins.

Gnocchi Poutine 

On July 1st, have some fun and combine Italian and Canadian cuisine. The concept is unexpected but so simple: top gnocchi with gravy and cheese curds. The final step? Sit back and watch your guests fall in love with this rich dish. 


Meatball Poutine 

Poutine may be a classic Canadian dish, but that doesn't mean it always has to be simple. Add a touch of sophistication to your menu this Canada Day by topping your poutine with meatballs, marinara sauce and chorizo sausage.

Nacho Grande Poutine 

Watch your guests go crazy over this hybrid of poutine and nachos. What better way to kick off a Canada Day celebration than with a combination of two of the most popular North American snacks?


Foie Gras Poutine 

Let your guests indulge this Canada Day with this ultra-sophisticated and creamy dish. They (and you!) will never look at poutine the same way again.

Dessert Poutine 

Okay, so this isn't technically poutine, but it sure looks like it. End your July 1st bash with this delicious treat and you'll have your guests lining up for seconds. Top churros with caramel sauce and marshmallows for a fun play on the classic dish.
