Poutine is the only way french fries and cheese should ever be combined.
Real Poutine uses cheese curds...

And gravy....

Okay, so technically cheese curds aren't cheese, but they're closer to it than Velveeta is.

Speaking of cheese curds, I got some the other day that were soaked in Buffalo wing sauce. MMMMMMM M!


Norm: In traditional Poutine, is the gravy put over the curds or are the curds put on after the gravy? I've seen it done both ways but sometimes, and I know this is hard to believe, some recipes get bastardized when they cross international borders.

Cheese curds are just baby cheese! They can at least be made into cheese - once it goes Velveeta, it can never go back.

You'd have to ask someone from Quebec, I've heard Kay-beck-quoi expound on the subject, I just can't remember what Jenna said.

IIRC, it's simply a matter of personal taste, meaning many long ugly battles have been fought, and friendships, marriages, and lives destroyed, over which way is "right".

Sounds like it might be better just to not have an opinion, unless that gets you reviled by both sides.

French fries, with Ketchup, why has ketchup never been mentioned in tis thread?
Wasn't there some discussion of ketchup (specifically mushroom ketchup, which I have grave doubts about) when we were going through the mushroom phase?

Is there any substance known to mankind that isn't?

Yes, but we haven't a meaningful discussion of catsup, though.

Given the nature of The Thread, we may have to (re)define 'meaningful'.

We are seldom mean, but most of us are full of it.
