Poutine. Canada's National Dish. Gravy covered fries topped with cheese curds. Nowadays, the definition of what people call "poutine" has changed. People are putting their crazy spin onto this national favorite. From pulled pork to sausages and vegan cheese to blue cheese, there is no shortage of topping possibilities. Not only are the toppings wild, but many poutine places serve a variety of different fries, from your original russet potatoes to the more modern sweet potatoes. There are so many combinations and no limit to the creations!
The Supreme was the star of the night, containing bacon, sour cream, and green onion. We chose the meatier beef gravy for this one, which had a great deal more flavor than the lighter version and was complemented nicely by the sour cream and bacon bits. The cheese can make or break a good poutine, and these cheese curds did not disappoint. They had the perfect squeaky texture and mild flavor that allowed the other ingredients to shine through.
