How to Make Poutine Fries
Cut your potatoes into fries. Spray with oil and place in an even layer in your air fryer basket. For best results, try not to overlap the potatoes if you have room.
Cook as directed in the recipe card. If you need to, you can batch cook the potatoes.
While the potatoes are cooking, add the butter and broth to a saucepan on the stove.
Once the broth is at a slow boil, add in pepper, and whisk. Stir in the cornstarch and flour to thicken the mixture.
When the fries are done, remove, top with gravy and cheese curds.
