To start making the poutine I put a bag of crinkle cut french fries in my actifry to cook.  You can cook them in the oven or deep fryer if you do not have  an actifry.

Then I put some water into a sauce pan, added the contents of three gluten free turkey gravy packets and turned heat to medium.  I stirred occasionally until it boiled and thickened.  Then I reduced the heat to simmer.

While the gravy and fries were cooking I chopped up some leftover turkey.

Then I added some olive oil to a large frying pan and turned it to  medium low heat.

Once the pan was hot I added in the cut up turkey.

Then I added in some leftover Instant Pot Festive Stuffing.  You can use any stuffing but Festive Stuffing has chopped pecans, bacon crumble and dried cranberries.  

These ingredients are not necessary if your stuffing is without them but they do add texture and flavour to the poutine.

Once the gravy boiled and thickened I lowered the burner to simmer until the fries and turkey mixture were ready.

When the turkey mixture was heated I turned the burner to low if the fries were still cooking.

When the fries were cooked I put 1/4 of them on a plate.

Then I topped the fries with a 1/4 of the turkey mixture.

Next I sprinkled some cheddar cheese curd on top of the turkey mixture.

For the last step I smothered the whole plate in the turkey gravy.

Festive Poutine is one option for using up leftovers from your holiday meal.  It is an option that will be enjoyed by young and old alike!

Whether you choose to use cheese curd or shredded cheese, every bite will be savoured with its blend of flavours and textures!
