Grill up "pub grub" in your backyard. This vintage 50's dish would be the equivalent of "Jersey Fries" today. French fries, gravy, and cheese curds load your belly, these Potato Wedge Poutine's are a tad healthier without scrimping on the flavor.

Ingredients

Large Russet Potatoes, scrubbed4
Olive Oil or Vegetable Oil2 Tbsp.
Traeger Prime Rib Rub, or your favorite Rubas needed
Chicken or Beef Gravy, homemade or jarred1 1/2 cups
White or yellow Cheddar Cheese Curds1 1/2 cups
Black Pepper, freshly groundas needed
Scallions, thinly sliced, for serving2 Tbsp.

Preparation

When ready to cook, start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). Set the temperature to 400F and preheat, lid closed, for 10 to 15 minutes.

Slice the potatoes in half lengthwise, then slice each half into 3 or 4 wedges. Put into a large mixing bowl and coat with the oil. Season the potato wedges generously with the Traeger Prime Rib Rub.

Tip the potatoes onto a rimmed baking sheet and spread in a single layer, cut sides down.

Roast the potatoes for 20 minutes, then using a spatula, turn the potatoes to the other cut side. Continue to roast until the potatoes are tender and golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes more. Meanwhile, warm the gravy on the stovetop or in a heat-proof saucepan on your Traeger.

Arrange the potatoes in a large shallow bowl or on a serving platter. Distribute the cheese curds on top. Pour the hot gravy evenly over the potatoes and cheese curds. Season with black pepper.

Garnish with sliced scallions, if desired. Serve immediately.
