4 comforting
one-pot recipe ideas

One-pot recipes, also known as casseroles, are extremely popular with our neighbours to the south. As the name suggests, all the ingredients go into a single pot. Some of these dishes can even be covered in cheese and baked in the oven for even tastier results!

Baked poutine

Baked potatoes are healthier than traditional poutine fries that are fried in oil. You can make this recipe even more nutritious by adding vegetables listed in the flyer!

Pre-heat the oven to 400 °F. Peel 1 large Russet potato per person and slice it into strips 1 cm thick. Place the potatoes in a baking dish and add the oil, salt, and pepper. Bake for about 20 minutes. Meanwhile, prepare the Selection poutine gravy according to the instructions on the package.

Once the potatoes have started to roast, you can add vegetables such as thinly sliced bell peppers and red onions. Add 1 ½ cup of cheese curds and the sauce. Bake for another 15 minutes. When the cheese starts to melt it’s time to serve and enjoy!
