I don’t live in Canada, but I live in the metro Detroit area. Windsor is just a hop, skip and a jump away!
I’m also French Canadian. That means I’m definitely a fan of poutine!
When I looked up poutine on the WW app it said it was 23 points. That’s for one serving!!
I guess I’m not too surprised since it’s french fries, cheese curds and gravy.
But I knew I would be able to lighten this up!
To start I used Ore Ida crinkle cut fries. I made them in the air fryer and they were delicious!
This was the first time I used the air fryer to cook frozen fries. I don’t think I’ll ever make them in the oven again.
I like my fries crispy, and they were just that!
You can also bake the fries in the oven.
For the gravy I used a packet of McCormick brown gravy. I only used about 1/4 of the gravy, which was one point.
Some of my Canadian friends might be horrified when I say this….but….I didn’t use cheese curds for my poutine.
Don’t get me wrong, cheese curds are delicious! But they are also high in points.
Instead I bought a block of part-skim mozzarella cheese.
Considering this poutine is Weight Watchers friendly, I absolutely loved it!
If you’re looking for a point friendly poutine I suggest you try this.
