Last time I was in Toronto I visited a poutine truck with a friend and tried several different styles with various toppings.

Poutine is so good that I could justify invading Canada to secure the future production and end America's reliance on importing the delicious substance.

This is the type I was brought up on ...."Poutine râpée is a traditional Acadian dish that in its most common form consists of a boiled potato dumpling with a pork filling; it is usually prepared with a mixture of grated and mashed potato." en.wikipedia.org... great with sugar sprinkled on them .mmmmm

I have plans to eat it within the next year. Considering what I've heard. I'll raid all homeowners, restaurant owners, food trucks, etc. for their food. Not just the poutine, but everything. 'Murica.



WAIT THIS JUST IN, THERE IS POUTINE TRUCKS IN PORTLAND, TIME TO HEAD THERE! Bye guys!

I swear I want to go to Canada just to eat Poutine! somehow in my mind I think it won't be authentic if I eat it anywhere else


In the North (UK) we pretty much put gravy on everything, and I grew up eating chips covered in cheese and gravy, but poutine with the creamy curds looks so tasty!

Hahaha i live in canada. At work a gentleman i befriended just moved here from peru. He never heard of poutine before. So i took him to poutine planet in town. 50 different types of poutine.
My favourite is perogie poutine. Gravy, sour cream, bacon and green onion.

You name the poutine, ive probably tried it at some point.

Just make it at home.mi bet it will be better than half the places here.
Get some chicken gravy (kfc gravy works great) and grate your favourite cheese on top. Badda bing -poutine

Also get a can of chili and some sour creme. Cook the chili, pour it on top of your fries, add hot sauce and sour creme.. You got a party

Poutine does taste pretty good no doubt about it!

Chicken poutine. Steak and onions poutine. Bacon poutine. Pizza poutine. Pepper sauce poutine. Smoked meat poutine. Italian sausage and red peppers poutine. Turkey and peas poutine. Sliced hot dogs poutine...the list goes on and on.

Poutine is probably the first meal I would give to an alien outsider!

Down in Southern Canada (Louisiana) we have amazing Poutine. Of course we jazz it up a little with some nice crayfish and add other odds and ends so why go to where it will be cold in a month or so and instead come and fight mosquitoes....we need all the help we can get !

I would say the closest taste to cheese curds would be Monterrey Jack cheese if you want to give it a try!
That's what I do at home if I don't have it in curds.

The only difference between an authentic Canada poutine and what you make in your home, is that a strange french guy had his greasy mitts on your fries before you ate it. Lol

Try frying the potatoes in duck fat. YES I said Duck fat.

That makes the fries even better. Expensive. But I have done it twice. And it just makes those fries the king of the plate.

We make it at home almost every Sunday. It's a football day treat.

And I mix it up sometimes too. sour cream, fresh sauted mushrooms. Chile is a good topping.
