  • 1 bag frozen fries I used Cavendish's Restaurant Style
  • 1 package store-bought gravy I used the Swiss Chalet chicken kind
  • 1 package white cheddar cheese curds
  • 1 lb cooked lobster
  • 1 bunch fresh chives chopped


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Bake fries for 10 min. Flip fries, then bake another 7-10 min.
  • Meanwhile, make gravy according to package directions on the stovetop.
  • Remove fries from oven, then switch setting to broil on high heat. Place a piece of parchment over a cast iron pan or oven-safe dish, then fill with fries. Sprinkle fries with cheese curds then top with gravy and lobster.
  • Broil fries in the oven for 3-5 min until cheese is fully melted. Sprinkle with chives and serve!


Use fresh or frozen cooked lobster or make fresh lobster by boiling it on the stovetop.
Feel free to add on other toppings of your choosing. You can even leave off the lobster to make original poutine.
Store any leftovers separately in the fridge for up to 4 days then assemble fresh.
Freeze the cooked lobster for up to 6 months. Let it thaw in the fridge overnight then add it to your lobster poutine.
