Right off the bat I want to confess that I am flagrantly stealing this recipe from Juli at PaleOMG. I love Juli’s recipes, most of which seem to feature either bacon or sweet potatoes. This recipe features both, which is what makes it so awesome. The only thing I changed a bit was the gravy. Like Juli, I have no idea if this tastes authentic. It does taste amazingly kick-ass though, so I don’t care. Poutine is French fries and cheese curds covered in gravy. Jewel thinks it sounds like Wisconsin State Fair food. (Mmmm… Deep fried butter…). Sorry, my mind wandered there for a minute.
I’ll post the recipe with my minor changes incorporated.
1 sweet potato, cut lengthwise into preference sized french fries
Coconut Oil spray
1 head of cauliflower, stem removed, cut into small florets
3 strips of leftover bacon, cut into 1 inches pieces
2 leftover pork breakfast sausages
1/2 cup canned coconut milk
1 tablespoon almond butter
1 clove garlic, thinly sliced
pinch of dried thyme
pinch of black pepper
pinch of sea salt
2 tablespoons bacon grease
Line a baking pan with parchment paper. This is the new baking pan that Tom picked up at Target. It is leveling our family up to an enhanced quality of life. Spray the parchment paper with coconut oil spray, lay the potatoes down, then spray again. Put the potatoes on the oven. They don’t take as long as the cauliflower, maybe 30 minutes
Stealthily add the bacon and sausage. The most difficult part of this recipe is resisting the urge to eat all the bacon when you are breaking it into pieces. No need to make it more challenging by involving other family members. I liked the addition of the sausage because it made it taste similar to Southern gravy (as in biscuits and gravy). Next time I’ll double the amount of gravy. It tasted good on everything.
