When Thanksgiving arrives and you've made too much pan gravy, this quick and easy poutine recipe is perfect for using up every last drop. Enjoy with your favorite variety of frozen french fries. Our Test Kitchen used the traditional chewy cheese curds, but you can tear pieces of mozzarella here, too.


  • 6 cups french fries

  • 1 cup gravy

  • 1 cup cheese curds or aged mozzarella (not fresh), torn into bite-size pieces

  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley


  1. Preheat oven to 425°F. Spread fries in a shallow baking pan. Bake until browned and crisp, 25 to 30 minutes. Meanwhile, warm gravy until hot.

  2. Place fries in a large bowl. Add 1/2 cup of hot gravy to the bowl and toss to coat fries. Add the cheese curds and toss with the hot fries and gravy. Transfer to a serving dish. Sprinkle with parsley and freshly ground pepper. Serve immediately with remaining gravy.
