Christmas Leftover Poutine – crispy fries topped with leftover Christmas dinner including vegan turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and vegan gravy.
The holidays may look a little different this year but that doesn’t mean you can’t have a delicious feast with equally delicious leftovers. We may not be having large gatherings, but you can be sure we’re still making holiday recipes like Vegan Stuffing, Cranberry Sauce and our Everything Bagel Brussels Sprouts. But what do you do with the leftovers? We have the answer!
What makes the perfect leftover recipe? Simplicity! All you need is some crispy fries (we used frozen fries and air fried them), vegan cheese and whatever leftovers you have – but gravy is a must.
What is poutine?
Besides one of the best meals in existence? Poutine is a Canadian recipe, more specifically a Quebecoise recipe. It first appeared in Quebec in the 1950s before becoming widely popular across Canada in the 1990s. It’s typically a late night meal and on every bar menu but because of its popularity you can find in on many Canadian menus from fine dining to dive bars.
Comprised of three main ingredients – fresh-cut fries, cheese curds, and gravy. Yep, that’s it.
