Thanksgiving dinner is arguably one of the best meals of the year. We gather with our family and friends to reflect on the people and things for which we’re grateful. And of course, we enjoy a meal filled with our favorite comfort foods.
One of the greatest parts of Thanksgiving is enjoying leftovers for breakfast, lunch AND dinner for days after. This recipe for Thanksgiving poutine has us even more excited to dig into the extra turkey!
What Is Poutine?
The classic recipe is made with french fries, brown gravy and white cheddar cheese curds. McCain Foods, a brand you may recognize from the frozen food aisle, updated the recipe just for Thanksgiving.
