How to Create the Perfect Poutine
Here in Canada, we have a few culinary masterpieces that define our country. You may have enjoyed the sweetness of a butter tart or the creaminess of a Nanaimo bar, the saltiness of peameal bacon, or the crunch of a BeaverTail.
But there is no culinary experience quite like the flavours and textures that come together when golden brown gravy is drizzled over pillowy cheese curds on top of a bed of crispy, golden fries. That’s right, folks, we’re talking about one of the most iconic foods known to the Canadian palate: Poutine.
Cozy yourself up to a box of this delicious Canadian dish on April 11th, also known as National Poutine Day.

The Classic Take Out Box
First things first: you need to find yourself a vessel to contain the gloriousness that you’re about to create. Some may opt for a bowl or plate, but if you’re looking for an authentic take-out experience, you need a sturdy, easy to hold box. We’ve got a variety of recyclable take-out boxes, ready to keep your hands safe from delicious but drippy gravy.
At the base of every perfect poutine is a bed of golden fries. Crispy on the outside, and soft on the inside, Sunspun Fries knows what we want in a good french fry. And if you’re looking for the best ‘bang for your buck’, we’ve got you covered there too.

Equally as important as that delicious, golden base, is a generous sprinkling of pillowy cheese curds. Some opt for the stringy, shredded cheese, but that usually just creates what can only be described as a “cheese soup.” If what you’re looking for are those delicious gobs of creamy cheese, there’s no better option than curds. St. Albert Dairy Co-Op is one of the oldest cooperatives in Canada, dating back to the late 19th century. They know what people are looking for when it comes to poutine-worthy cheeses, and so do we – pick up some of this delicious cheese at your local Wholesale Club!
No poutine is complete without a generous dousing of savoury, rich gravy. We’ve searched high and low for the gravy good enough to top your house made poutine, and we’ve discovered that Knorr knows how it’s done! With authentic, traditional flavour and quick prep, Knorr poutine gravy is the crown to top your perfect poutine.
