Sausage Crawfish Poutine Cheese Fries - a Southern twist on classic poutine that's made with crawfish, pimento cheese, and sausage.

I was inspired by Kelly English’s Oxford, MS restaurant, Second Line, that offers a Louisiana Cheese Fries with Crawfish and Gravy on the menu. My restaurant remake is spicy and filling. Layered on a base of crispy fries is a savory, brown gravy, crawfish tails, and sausage. Melted on top is a generous portion of pimento cheese spread.

Serve this as an appetizer or meal.


Sausage Crawfish Poutine Cheese Fries

What is poutine? Poutine is a Canadian dish made with french fries and cheese curds topped with a light brown gravy. I’m calling this ‘poutine’ even though it doesn’t have the traditional cheese curd topping. This Sausage Crawfish Poutine Cheese Fries recipe is my Southern translation of that a traditional poutine recipe.

Sausage Crawfish Poutine Cheese Fries

  1. You can use olive oil mayonnaise in the pimento cheese in this recipe.
  2. I prefer to shred a mild cheddar for the pimento cheese myself. You may use a pre-shredded cheese, I recommend the brand I used in theis reicpe.
  3. I have used both homemade fries and frozen fries in this recipe. This particular time I used a frozen waffle fry and cooked it in the oven according to the package directions. I have also hand-cut russet potatoes and fried them. Both ways are good and it basically depends on how much time I have whether I opt for the quicker frozen fry or make them homemade.

Ingredients

PIMENTO CHEESE RECIPE

  • 2 ounces pimentos undrained
  • 2 tablespoons pickled jalapenos diced
  • 8- ounce cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise you can substitute olive oil mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoon sour cream
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 1/2 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 pinch salt

SAUSAGE GRAVY

  • 1 to 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1/2 pound sausage andouille or pork breakfast sausage
  • 3/4 cup onion diced
  • 1/3 cup red bell pepper diced
  • 1 clove garlic minced
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 and ½ cups chicken stock

POUTINE

  • 4 to 5 cups french fries cooked (You can use fresh or frozen. I used frozen waffle fries this particular time.
  • 1/2 pound cooked shelled crawfish tails
  • 1/4 cup tomato chopped
  • 1/4 cup green onion thinly sliced

Instructions

PIMENTO CHEESE RECIPE

  • Mix all the ingredients together for the pimento cheese.
  • Taste, adjust seasoning if necessary.
  • Refrigerate until ready to use. You can make this 1 or 2 days early.

SAUSAGE GRAVY

  • In a medium skillet (I prefer a cast iron skillet for gravy.), heat the oil
  • Add the sausage, and cook over medium heat about 6 to 8 minutes. The sausage will be a little crispy and browned and the fat rendered. (You need 2 to 3 tablespoons total of fat. If your sausage doesn't render this much, add more canola oil to the pan.)
  • Add the onion and cook about 3 minutes.
  • Add the red pepper and garlic and cook 2 minutes.
  • Sprinkle in the flour and whisk until incorporated.
  • Add the stock and bring to a simmer.
  • Cook until the gravy is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. This should take about 5 minutes.
  • Cook fries. You can deep fry or bake whichever you like best. For frozen and baked, preheat oven to 425 degrees F.
  • Spread fries in a single layer on a cookie sheet. Bake according to package directions, usually 20 to 25 minutes. Flip to the second side half way through the time.

PUT THE POUTINE TOGETHER

  • When fries are cooked, transfer to a oven-safe serving dish.
  • Spread the sausage and crawfish over the fries.
  • Spoon the gravy on top. Dollop 1 cup pimento cheese mixture over fries and gravy. (Reserve remaining pimento cheese for another use, as a dip or sandwich spread.)
  • Return poutine to oven for about 5 minutes or until everything is hot and pimento cheese is bubbly and melted.
  • Top with tomato and green onion.
  • Serve immediately.
