Total Time:
1 hr
25 min
35 min

8 servings

  • One 1-pound bag frozen steak fries
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons cowboy spice rub
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 pound (85/15) ground beef
  • 2 teaspoons barbecue spice blend
  • One 16-ounce can baked beans
  • 1 1/2 cups barbecue sauce
  • One 2.8-ounce can fried onion strings
  • 8 slices smoked Gouda (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 pound thick-cut bacon, cooked crisp and crumbled
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  • Place the frozen steak fries on the prepared baking sheet and drizzle with the oil. Sprinkle with the cowboy rub and a pinch of salt. Toss the potatoes to coat and roast according to the package directions until golden brown and crispy.

  • Meanwhile, place a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the ground beef and sprinkle with the barbecue spice blend and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until evenly browned, 8 to 10 minutes. Set aside.

  • Remove the cooked fries from the oven but leave on the baking sheet. Alternatively, you can transfer the cooked fries to a large cast-iron skillet for serving.

  • Set the oven to 375 degrees F.

  • Cover the fries evenly with the baked beans. Put the cooked ground beef on top of the beans and drizzle with the barbecue sauce. Sprinkle with 1/4 cup of the fried onion strings. Cover the onions with the Gouda.

  • Put the baking sheet or skillet back in the oven and bake until the cheese melts and the sauce bubbles, 5 to 7 minutes.

  • Sprinkle the baked poutine with the remaining fried onion strings, crumbled bacon and scallions. Serve immediately.
