    It has been known to drive men to madness...

    Poutine is a diner staple that originated in Quebec and can now be found across Canada. It is sold by national and international fast food chains, in small "greasy spoon" type diners (commonly known as "cantines" or "casse-croûtes" in Quebec) and pubs, as well as by roadside chip wagons (commonly known as "cabanes à patates", literally meaning "potato shacks"). International chains like McDonald's, A&W, KFC and Burger King also sell mass-produced poutine in Canada. Atypically, the dish may include additional ingredients such as lobster meat, rabbit confit, caviar, and truffles.

    I Iike mine with bacon.

    Looks nasty. And the name of it sounds nasty. I'll stick with fast food burgers when I want something unhealthy.

    Poutine is Amazing! My ex and I had poutine after every date...

    But that was in Quebec City... So it's completely alright. And we spent lots of energy burning the poutine off....

    My favorite poutine is poutine italienne made with spaghetti sauce. Can't do it everyday, but do love it.

    And I take it you eat it by putting your hands behind your back and going in full face.

    It can be pretty amazingly good. The potatoes are soaked on premisis and hand cut. The brown gravy tends to be more starchy than fatty, so it's not as unhealthynas it looks. The cheese curds are a quality source of low-fat protein. There are places in my neighborhood that serve one or two dozen varieties. I can't speak for the McDonald variety, but like everything else at McDonald's, it's probably a plastic version of the real thing.

    Chips (fries) and gravy has been a Northern English 'delicacy' since at least the middle of the last century. I tried A&W Poutine in Vancouver. Very tasty.

    1 quart vegetable oil for frying
    1 (10.25 ounce) can beef gravy
    5 medium potatoes, cut into fries
    2 cups cheese curds

    Directions

    Heat oil in a deep fryer or deep heavy skillet to 365 degrees F (185 degrees C). While the oil is heating, you can begin to warm your gravy.
    Place the fries into the hot oil, and cook until light brown, about 5 minutes. Make the fries in batches if necessary to allow them room to move a little in the oil. Remove to a paper towel lined plate to drain.
    Place the fries on a serving platter, and sprinkle the cheese over them. Ladle gravy over the fries and cheese, and serve immediately.



    This sounds almost illegal! My arteries started to harden just reading this!

    Poutine is to Canada, more specifically Quebec, what apple pie is to the States.

    Most Amerians, being born/raised/educated/steeped in the American culture that was the dominant global cultural over the last century, won't get it.

    That's ok, we still love you.
