What’s not to love about this Mushroom Bacon Alfredo Poutine Recipe – a big glorious plate of Canadian-inspired, gravy-soaked fries. Only no gravy this time. Instead, we’re topping it with a buttery alfredo sauce, bacon and fried mushrooms.
Nameko mushroom has a great nutty flavour and is one of the few mushroom species which grow on softwood trees.
If you have a recipe that calls for nameko mushrooms like this one, and you can’t find any in your area, you can try using shiitake mushrooms as a substitute.
Shiitake mushrooms are edible mushrooms native to East Asia. They’re tan to dark brown, with caps that grow between 2 and 4 inches (5 and 10 cm).
Maris Piper, King Edward or Marfona are examples of starch potatoes. Their low moisture and high starch content give them superior baking qualities and make them excellent for french fries.
One cup is equivalent to 250ml.
*As an alternative, the fries can be air-fried or baked, if desired.
