Here at MTL Blog there's no shortage of poutine articles. But for a food item that is synonymous with happiness, it doesn't exactly come in a convenient party format. Luckily, the people at Serious Eats realized this was a problem and decided to do something about it. Thanks to Poutine poppers, you now have an easy convenient bite sized snack to serve your guests. (or to devour all to by yourself, we won't judge you)

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.

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.
