Lobster Poutine with Brown Butter Cheese Sauce |

Lobster Poutine with Brown Butter Cheese Sauce

  • Yield: 4 servings 1x



For the Fries:

  • 1 bag of frozen french fries (you can definitely make your own)
  • Olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay spice seasoning
  • Salt

For the Lobster:

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 lb cooked lobster meat, chopped into bite-sized pieces

For the Brown Butter Cheese Sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1 garlic clove, grated or pressed
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • ¾ cup lobster or seafood stock
  • ¾ cup whole milk
  • 4 oz gruyere cheese, grated
  • 4 oz fontina cheese, grated
  • 1 teaspoon Old Bay spice seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, to taste

For Assembly:

  • Fresh cheese curds
  • Scallions or chives, for garnish


For the Fries:

  1. Spread the frozen fries out on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Drizzle lightly with olive oil and season with the Old Bay spice and a pinch of salt. Toss to coat and then bake according to the package directions.

For the Lobster:

  1. Melt the butter in a small saucepan and add the lobster meat. Toss to coat in the butter and heat until warmed through, about 2 minutes. You’re working with cooked lobster meat at this point, so there is no need to cook it further. Keep warm until you are ready to assemble.

For the Cheese Sauce:

  1. Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Allow the butter to turn golden brown and nutty.
  2. Add in the garlic and cook for a few seconds or until fragrant. Whisk in the flour and cook the roux for 2 minutes.
  3. Slowly whisk in the stock and the milk. Stirring frequently, bring the mixture to a gentle simmer, and cook until thickened, about 3-5 minutes total.
  4. Once it is thickened, whisk in the cheeses and Old Bay. Season, to taste, with salt and pepper. Keep warm until you are ready to assemble.

To Assemble:

  1. Pile the hot fries into a baking dish (or heat-proof serving dish). Top with the lobster meat and cheese curds and then pour the cheese sauce over everything. Garnish with fresh scallions or chives and serve immediately.
