If you’ve got leftover turkey and gravy in the fridge from Thanksgiving, make a quick turkey poutine.
How to Make Poutine with Leftover Turkey and Gravy
- Use frozen French fries. Regular or sweet potato French fries taste great with turkey poutine. Since this poutine uses leftovers, I like to use my air fryer to make frozen French fries. They make for a really quick poutine.
- Reheat the gravy and turkey together. Chop leftover turkey into bite-size pieces and place into a small pan with the gravy. Heat while you make the French fries.
- Top with cheese curds. Traditional poutine is topped with cheese curds. If you can’t find them in your grocery store, cut Cheddar cheese into bite-size pieces or top with crumbles of feta or fresh mozzarella pearls.
Use leftover turkey and gravy to make a quick poutine. Ingredient amounts listed below are suggestions. Adjust based on your preferences for more or less gravy and how many people you're serving.
- ¾ cup leftover turkey gravy
- ½ cup leftover roasted turkey, chopped into bite-size pieces
- 2 servings frozen French fries
- 2 tablespoons cheese curds
Combine leftover gravy and chopped turkey in a small saucepan. Heat over low while you prepare the French fries.
Cook French fries according to package directions.
Place French fries in a bowl. Top with cheese curds. Spoon hot gravy and turkey over fries. Enjoy
Poutine is best enjoyed as soon as it’s made. Leftovers get soggy.
