In a large bowl whisk together the flour, salt and baking powder.
Then add the olive oil and whisk together with a fork, gradually add water and stir until the dough almost holds together. Move to a lightly floured flat surface and gently knead about 10 times just until the dough comes together (the dough will be sticky, do not overknead).
Divide into 5 balls and flatten with the palm of your hand. Fry in hot oil (350F/175C)on medium heat (enough to cover the bottom of a medium frying pan), until golden brown on both sides (and cooked on the inside). Drain on a paper towel lined plate and eat warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!

1 batch homemade French Fries, or a 28 z. bag of frozen fries
6 oz. cheese curds or cubed mozzarella cheese
1 batch homemade brown gravy, or use a packet
Vegetable oil, for frying
Prepare the French Fries
I recommend making my homemade French fries. Otherwise frozen French fries can be baked per package instructions, or fried as follows:
Heat oil to 300 degrees in a deep fryer or dutch ovenTIP: Using a candy/deep frying thermometer makes it easy to tell when the oil is ready.
Add the fries to the oil in batches, don’t overcrowd them. Fry for about 5 minutes, then place them on a paper towel lined plate. This is enough to cook them through without browning the outside yet and is the best method for extra crispy fries.
Increase heat to 400 degrees and fry in batches a second time, until they are crispy and golden brown on the outside. Place on paper towels.
Add the Cheese and Bake
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Line the fries on a baking sheet and sprinkle the cheese on top.
Bake for 10-15 minutes, until the cheese is just melted.
Prepare the Gravy
This recipe for homemade beef gravy is perfect for Poutine and takes just 10 minutes. Otherwise, prepare a packet according to package instructions. You can also make my easy Chicken Gravy recipe.
Drizzle the gravy over the fries and serve immediately!
