Yup, Poutine. Had the same reaction when I first tried it yrs ago. What's not to like? Cheese, gravy, fries...MATCH! Gotta put on the hot sauce tho...next level stuff right there.
Now, let's not talk about those NASTY Grits you guys have down there...ewwwww...!
We have poutine and what do you offer in return? GRITS!

Today, the husband & I went out to lunch. Nothing unusual there, people do that. This place had poutine on the menu. I eyeballed it warily -- curds & gravy on fries, really?
I caved and ordered some. I poked at it for a while trying to conjure up the stones to try it. Eventually, I ate some.
I had an epiphany moment.
Poutine is friggin' delicious.
For something that always struck me as looking regurgitated, it's the best thing I've had in a while, putting most other carby comfort foods to shame. So to all Canadians, I'm sorry ever made fun of it, and . . . I am now a convert. You win the comfort food war!
Any other poutine fans in the US? And anyone got a recipe for making the curds at home?

You need to stop worrying so much about what something *looks* like. Instead think about what the components taste like and think to yourself about whether or not those tastes/textures seem like a good fit

my favorite poutine
FRENCH FRIES, CUBED HASH BROWNS, OR MASHED POTATOES.... FRIES MUST BE DEEP FRIED TO GIVE MAXIMUM CRISPNESS AND TEXTURE, THIS IS A MUST WITH POUTINE AS FRYS GET SOGGY AND THAT CAN BE A BIT GROSS.
PAN SCRAMBLE 2 EGGS
FRESH BACON BITS /SAUSAGE OR CUBED TUPIE HAM COOKED.
FRESH CHIVES, CHOPPED FINE.
HOMEMADE HOLLANDAISE SAUCE
5 YR OLD CANADIAN CHEDDAR CHEESE GRATED & APPLEWOOD SMOKED GOUDA CHEESE
large bowl or plate add frys, eggs,chives, meat of choice
now the final step is of choice is it sauce than cheese or cheese than sauce.. its all preference.. myself i like a crusty toping of cheese on my poutine , its a texture thing for me. but some people like the cheese really stringy and mixed with the sauce. so its all about how you want it. myself i would put Sauce than Cheese and broil the top for a few min, with the hollandaise sauce will broil up nice also. enjoy the calorie induced coma!
