I have two pieces of exciting news! One, today is National Poutine Day. Two, Celiacs don’t have to miss out on this delicious dish.
If you’re dining out, there are a few fast food chains that do not use gluten in the preparation of their poutine. (That also means that French fries are cooked in a dedicated fryer.)
Remember that the possibility of cross-contamination always exists, and to make sure that you inform the restaurant of any intolerances or allergies when ordering.
A safer bet is to make poutine at home. You just need three ingredients:
- French fries (we usually make our own by chopping up potatoes and deep-frying them)
- Leftover roast gravy (from our Market-Fresh Pot Roast or Easy Gluten-Free Roast recipes)
- Fresh cheese curds (we love Fox Hill cheese!)
If we don’t have leftover gravy, it’s easy to mix some up using a gluten-free mix from Maxwell’s Kitchen or Club House! (If you’re using Club House, make sure that you get the package that specifically says gluten-free and has the logo from the Gluten-Free Certification Program on it.)
Happy National Poutine Day!
