My Halloween poutine is just as comforting as the original poutine but involves sweet potato fries, marshmallow, apples, pecans, and caramel corn!
Have you ever had poutine? Who can resist fries with gravy and cheese curds, am I right? But have you had a Halloween version?
How to make Halloween Poutine
The Canadian dish called Poutine, made of french fries, topped with cheese curds, and covered with brown gravy is the best kind of comfort food in my opinion. Also, the best cure for a hangover if you are unlucky enough to have one. There is something about warm, crispy fries, gooey cheese, and rich gravy that makes my mouth water and clear away the cobwebs in my mind.
I’m taking poutine, and giving it a Halloween twist if you will. Festive French Fries, here we come!

Halloween Poutine Starts with Sweet Potato Fries
Normally we would start with straight-cut, french fries, lightly salted, but since I am in the Halloween spirit, or the spirits of All Hallows Eve are calling to me, we are starting with sweet potatoes. Orange, for the color of pumpkins and Jack O Lanterns if you will. You can also make the Halloween Poutine with the waffle version of sweet potato fries which means more surface to hold the toppings!
Arrange them on a foil-lined baking sheet and bake according to the directions on the package. Feel free to make your own from scratch, but I will be swamped handing out candy and goodies to ghouls and goblins at my door to be doing that!

Once you have the base set you can start building the Halloween Poutine!
Halloween Poutine Cheese Curds
To replace the poutine cheese curds in the original recipe, I am adding another Halloween favorite, APPLES! Forget bobbing for apples, much less peeling and baking them. Grab a batch of apple pie filling, homemade or store-bought, and just add a few over the top of the sweet potatoes!
Once you have the fries and the apple pie “cheese curds” switched over to the sweet side its time to talk about gravy.
Halloween Poutine Gravy
Traditionally a brown gravy, I lighten it up with marshmallow fluff. Warm and melty marshmallow fluff drizzled over the hot and crispy sweet potato fries and cinnamon baked apples. Now we are talking sweet, delicious, and very Halloween-like!
Sweet Potato Fries – French Fries
Baked Apples – Cheese Curds
Marshmallow Fluff – Poutine Gravy
FAQ about HALLOWEEN POUTINE:
- Q: Can I add other toppings besides the caramel corn and pecans?
A: Absolutely! You add what you like to the Halloween Poutine!
- Q: Can the Halloween Poutine be made ahead of time?
A: I wouldn’t recommend it as the fries will be cold and everything will get soggy. It also doesn’t store or reheat very well either so you should eat them all when you make them.
- Q: Can you use regular marshmallows if you don’t’ have fluff?
A: You can but I would use the mini marshmallows. To look like “gravy” you want it to seem to spread them out over the fries.
Technically the Halloween poutine is complete but I really have a hard time stopping myself when it comes to piling on crispy and crunchy extras for texture. I top my Halloween Poutine with buttery toasted pecans and/or caramel popcorn.
I couldn’t help myself and I used both. If you want a little evil spirit, a sprinkle of cayenne pepper can also be added. If you dare!
