If you're from Canada or know anyone who is, you know that poutine fries are a staple for our neighbors to the North. Just 3 simple ingredients -- fries, gravy, and cheese curds. While at the Farmer's Market one Saturday, I stumbled upon cheese curds. I was very excited, as was my boyfriend who was born in Canada. We immediately came home and made these poutine fries for lunch that day. I opted to add a 4th ingredient to our poutine fries, adding a little coffee to the gravy for a midday caffeine pick me up. I'm not sure why poutine hasn't quite caught on in the US yet, but I'm sure it will. Anything with fries, gravy, and cheese can't stay a secret for too long, eh?
