First of all – Happy Canada Day to our northern family & friends!  And second of all, for all our northern family & friends reading this… I just want to acknowledge and sincerely apologize that this is not a REAL “authentic” poutine because there are no cheese curds.  I know better.  But hey, we haven’t been to Canada in a while and can’t get good curds around here. I’ll make it right when I can get the St. Albert curd again, OK?  🙂

This potato peel poutine is the TASTIEST recipe for leftover potato peels. Fry ’em up, top them with cheese, and pour on the gravy.  Aside from being an eco-friendly recipe by not wasting the peels, this is one real treat.  Use cheese curds if you can find them, and shredded mozzarella if you can’t.  And you can use any gravy but I’d highly recommend this very authentic St. Hubert poutine gravy which is made for occasions such as this!

This Poutine Potato Peels Is:

  • Dirty
  • Well Seasoned
  • Crisp
  • Savory
  • Decadent
  • A Great No-Waste Recipe
  • Not at all authentic, again I apologize Canada!, but it is SO good

Air Fryer Potato Peel Fries

We have a Cosori Air Fryer (it has legit over 30k positive reviews on Amazon 🙂 ) and we are in LOVE with this thing!  Since we don’t use a microwave, this air fryer is perfect for heating up things quickly. It’s been really fun to make all kinds of recipes in the Air Fryer: crispy vegetables, tofu, muffins, and it’s great for reheating leftovers.  I was an air fryer skeptic for a long time, but highly recommend this air fryer for anyone who loves to cook! I got this one for Christmas, so would also recommend this as a great gift for friends or family.

Eat Potato Peels for a No-Waste Recipe!

I’m all about saving, reusing, or re-purposing as much as I can in my kitchen. This poutine with potato peels is the perfect way to re-purpose something you may be tempted to throw out. Instead of tossing the peels in the compost or garbage, you can re-purpose them into a delicious and flavorful snack.  I’m all about saving anything I can from my kitchen, and this poutine is a great way to avoid letting leftovers go to waste!

How Do I Make Poutine with Potato Peels?

Step One: Fry the Potato Peels

Air Fryer Directions

  • Preheat the Air Fryer. In a large bowl, toss the potato peels, olive oil, garlic powder, and steak spice. Add them to the preheated air fryer basket and bake on 400 degrees for 10 minutes, shaking halfway.
  • Test for doneness: make sure the peels are crispy on the outside and cooked all the way through. If they aren’t, add an additional 3 minutes on the air fryer.

Stove Top Directions

  • Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat. In a large bowl, toss the potato peels, olive oil, garlic powder, and steak spice. Add them to the skillet and fry for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Test for doneness: make sure the peels are crispy on the outside and cooked all the way through. If they aren’t, add an additional 5 minutes of cooking time and test again.

Oven Directions

  • Line a sheetpan with parchment paper, preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a large bowl, toss the potato peels, olive oil, garlic powder, and steak spice. Add them to the sheet pan and bake for 25 minutes, flipping halfway.
  • Test for doneness: make sure the peels are crispy on the outside and cooked all the way through. If they aren’t, add an additional 5 minutes of cooking time and test again.

Step 2: Add the Toppings

Add the cooked peels to a plate. Top with cheese and gravy (and a little parsley if you’re fancy)… and enjoy!

Notes: I used my air fryer for the potato peels in the picture… they were absolutely perfect!
