Today is National Sunday Supper Day and we have a great way to celebrate it!
We’re putting on the Poutine with Idaho® Potatoes!

Idaho® Potato won the Bloggers Choice award at the 2015 Food Wine Conference, so we are delighted to announce that the Idaho Potato Commission is sponsoring our National Sunday Supper Day event!
If you never heard of Poutine, you are in for a treat. Poutine, pronounced, Pu-tin is a dish traditionally made with fries, cheese curds and sour brown gravy. Pure deliciousness!
Idaho® Potatoes took that basic concept and elevated it to a gourmet experience that had us drooling for days!

We tasted decadent versions with chicken and waffle fries dripping with syrup and short ribs slathered in cheese and gravy. There was poutine with a fried egg resting on top just waiting to be gobbled up. Taters were topped with mushrooms, kale and greens. I think my favorite was a creation offering apples and cheddar. Super yummy!

My version of this classic treat starts out with roasted beef cooked in dark beer along with golden brown onions. Don’t toss the broth out! That base will make hands-down richest, best gravy you ever ate!

Beefy Beer and Red-Eye Gravy Poutine!

Time to layer those flavors with incredible red and yellow Idaho® Potatoes!

First lay the foundation. Idaho® Potatoes roasted to a golden brown and topped with thin slices of aged cheddar.
