Fries, cheese, & gravy, Oh My!

Yes, it's fairly common in Canada (our son loves it) AND it will raise your cholesterol count 4000 points!

There is absolutely no calories in this though. You can eat it three times and day and you won't put a pound on . Dangerous stuff....

OK, I give up. What the heck is POUTINE??? The word sounds like some new miracle drug for the treatment warts. Haven't I seen this advertised on TV with all the other prescription drugs.

poutine is about french fries, with cheese and sauce. There is different version of it. It's an heavy duty meal. Helpful in winter.

Poutine

Come to New Hampshire and eat at any of the French restaurants and you will be able to eat all the poutine you want. Gauranteed to get dizzy from the nourishment.

Pronounced

Putzine

Love poutine! Fortunately for my waistline, it isn't readily available where I live!

The version I had: French fries smothered w/brown gravy and mixed w/marble cheese...marble cheese included shredded jack and cheddar.

I googled poutine: favorite food of Quebec folks ..cheese curds used in some recipes..here's a pic of what I had ..my impression: a little like having crispy mashed potatoes and gravy

One of our Canadian comedians is famous for cornering Bush on the campaign trail and asking him what he thought of the Canadian Prime Minister (at the time) Jean Poutine. Mr Bush bafflegabbed his way through the interview and said what a great guy he was. Turns out his name wasn't Poutine, but Cretien. Gotta love it.
By the way, there is a Canadian gene called the Poutine gene. You have to stop and have a dose of fries, cheese and gravy every month or so just to keep you metabolism on an even keel. Must be something to do with the depth of the snow on the Airstream.

Come on over and visit sometime, we have Koegels in MI they are pretty good too, though I prefer Hebrew National's dogs myself.
