Easy Toast Fries Poutine puts a fun twist on a traditional Canadian dish. Using strips of delicious Dempster’s® White Bread in place of potatoes, this poutine packs plenty of flavour with a blend of cheese curds and gravy. Enjoy it as a savoury snack or unique party appetizer. Serves eight.


16 slices Dempster's® White Bread 1/3 cup (75 mL) butter, melted 3/4 cup (175 mL) beef gravy 1 cup (250 mL) fresh cheese curds 2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh parsley or chives


Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Trim crusts from bread; cut bread into thin strips to resemble French fries. Toss with melted butter and place in single layer on parchment paper-lined baking sheet; bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown and crisp. Meanwhile, heat gravy in small saucepan set over medium heat until heated through. Reduce oven temperature to 350°F (180°C). Mound toast fries slightly on top of each other; top with gravy and cheese curds. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until cheese is melted. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
