  • 8 white potatoes
  • 1 red onion
  • 1 knob of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
  • 1650ml Mazola Corn Oil
  • 250g Montreal smoked meat
  • 1 pickle
  • 2 green onions
  • 500g cheese curds
  • 398ml poutine sauce
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Cut 8 white potatoes into a French fry shape and soak them in a bowl of water for at least 10 minutes to remove excess starch.
  2. Meanwhile, chop the red onion, pickle and green onions to prepare your garnish.
  3. Rinse the potatoes and boil them for 3 minutes in a pot with cold water.
  4. In a hot skillet with a knob of butter, caramelize the red onion with 2 tablespoons of maple syrup.
  5. In a pot, heat about a bottle and a half of Mazola Corn Oil to between 350-375°F. Test to see if the Mazola Corn Oil is hot enough by dropping in a single French fry.
  6. Once the Mazola Corn Oil is ready, drain the raw French fries very well, pat dry and put them in the pot until they turn golden (approximately 3 minutes).
  7. When the fries are ready, take them out, salt them and let them rest on a paper towel for 30 minutes, then put them back in the hot Mazola Corn Oil until they become crispy.
  8. Heat the smoked meat and the poutine sauce as indicated on the package then cut the smoked meat into pieces.
  9. In a dish, add the French fries, garnish cheese curds, smoked meat, gravy and the rest of the ingredients and enjoy!
