There are three iconic Canadian foods; maple syrup, smoked salmon and poutine. The first two are very well-known around the world, yet many have yet to know and experience one of the best fast-food dishes that originates from Quebec – Poutine!
Poutine is simple and easy to make. Fresh, hot French fries, topped with fresh cheese curds, and covered in brown gravy.
The fries are typically a medium cut and are deep fried. The cheese curds must be fresh; less than a day old, so they will melt and squeak. The brown gravy sauce is made from chicken and beef gravy, with a hint of pepper. The hot gravy softens and melts the cheese curds.
Poutine can also include bacon, chicken or Montreal smoked meat.
