Another Look at Canada and a Bowl of Poutine
Just for a little change in pace, I’m going to switch it up this week at Food Freeway. Instead of featuring a country, I’m going to feature two recipes (one today, one on Wednesday) from countries that we’ve already visited; recipes that are very typical of certain regions.
To get started, today we’re back in Canada, and I want you to try Poutine.
Have you had it before? There’s no recipe required, so to speak, just handful of ingredients.
First, put the fries in a bowl. Next, sprinkle the cheese curds over top. Finally, pour the gravy over the fries and cheese. Let the mixture sit for a minute or two, and enjoy!
Make it east-coast by adding ground beef and canned peas – something that people in Prince Edward Island call Fries with the Works – also a favourite dish of my family’s.
If you’re Canadian, or if you’ve ever been up here, what would you say is your favourite quintessential Canadian dish?
