Years ago I was in Toronto and came across a delicious food called poutine.
At the time, I was completely clueless about poutine and that left me puzzled since I’m Canada’s neighbor.
Needless to say, poutine and I have become well acquainted over the years.
Still not sure how something like poutine escaped my notice?

Although, after discovering poutine I’m wondering what other yummy foods I’m missing out on.
For those that have no idea what I’m talking about poutine, in its most basic form, is french fries with cheese curds and brown gravy. They can, however, be served with other toppings. I like topping them with bbq pork, but I bet bacon would be tasty as well.
I knew I was going to have to try making these at home. It really isn’t difficult I’d just never thought about putting these ingredients together.
- Velveeta cheese (because it melts beautifully and can be chopped into a curd size)
- French fries
- Beef gravy
- Ready to eat bbq pork (because some days I’m lazy like that)
Making poutine was a lot easier than I thought!
I kind of wish it would have been terribly time-consuming so I would never want to make it again.
Poutine is definitely NOT diet-friendly, but it’s so good it’s worth indulging in the extra calories on occassion.
