Just a warning, for those who love cheese… this article is NSFW. It is food porn at its best.
These delicious little cheesy balls were originally posted on MTL blog, but 1/2 way through reading it I started drooling so I knew I needed to repost!
Bake a couple of potatoes, scoop out the insides into a bowl, mix in salt, pepper and flour and shape the potatoes into little balls. Grab your cheese curds and push them inside the potato balls while making sure the cheese curds are completely enveloped by the potato.
Once you’re done, get your deep fryer ready or start boiling oil in a pot. Now you can start working on your gravy. If you don’t want to make your own, you can always use store bought gravy, I wont judge you.
Drop the poppers into the oil and fry them up until they’re golden brown. Make sure they don’t cook too long or they will burst and the cheese will start pouring out. Now just place them on a platter with the gravy on the side and voila, you have all the classic ingredients of a poutine, deconstructed and reassembled into bite sized tater-tots.
These tasty deep-fried babies even work for those who are gluten free! Minus the gravy of course.
Make these today! Need I say more?
I am a girl who loves food. I grew up with a Mom who was an excellent cook. She wrote a cookbook when I was a child, and as they say, the rest is history. Started a catering business in 2005 and haven’t looked back. I am a mom to 2 beautiful girls and I want them to love food as much as I do. In the meantime, I love life and love my job @ http://www.monicaskitchen.com
