Poutine may be a dish you are not familiar with, but it’s a Canadian dish that is simply amazing. You can read some of the history of it, if you’d like, here. It’s a dish made with fries, meat, gravy and cheese. How could it not be good with those ingredients? To make it healthier and more Paleo friendly I have changed a few things, but it still mimics the original. It will also keep you warm on a cold winter’s day.
|Prep Time: 10 minutes||Cook Time: 20 minutes||Total Time: 30 minutes|
- 4 eggs
- 2 medium sweet potatoes
- 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
- 16 ounces of cooked and shredded pot roast or pork (I used leftover pot roast that was cooked in my crock pot with a bell pepper, a white onion, some garlic, and a little bit of water)
- 5 slices of bacon
- Salt and Pepper to taste
- Peel and cut the sweet potatoes into fries of your desired size.
- Put the fries in a large bowl and add in the olive oil. Thoroughly cover the fries with the oil.
- Put the fries onto a baking sheet and put under a broiler in the oven for about 10 minutes (until charred) then flip the fries over and cook for another 5-10 minutes until both sides are charred.
- While the fries are cooking, cook the slices of bacon. When they are finished, put them on a paper towel to allow excess oil to drain. It is important they are cooked until crispy. Once they are dried, put them into a food processor (I have a mini processor that works great for this). If you don’t have a food processor, cut up with a large knife until you have just crumbs of bacon.
- When the fries are finished, put them back into the bowl you used to coat them in the olive oil (It works best if you don’t wash the bowl while the fries are cooking). Add the chopped bacon to the bowl with the fries and toss until the fries are coated.
- As the fries are about to be plated, I crack the eggs into a hot frying pan. For us, this recipe is best when you use and over easy egg but that is up to each person.
- Now that the fries are finished, plate them. Next, stack your shredded pot roast (pulled pork works as well) on top of the fries. Next up would be gravy if you wanted gravy. We made a little bit of gravy from liquids in the crock pot and used that. Next add the over easy egg. In a Paleo-ish recipe you would add cheese curds on now. If you are not following a strict Paleo diet, I would highly recommend the curds. It makes this dish over the top amazing.
- Now serve and enjoy!
