Yup……that’s the word and that is what my lunch consisted of!!! Pronounced…poo-teen…..it is the national dish of Canada and is not on any Weight Watcher’s diet……guaranteed!!!!!! A further Merriam-Webster definition:
Whether the gravy came a few years later or was present ab ovo is disputed. Also unclear is the origin of the word by which the dish is known. Some assert that poutine is related to the English word pudding, but a more popular etymology is that it’s from a Quebecois slang word meaning “mess.”
Whatever its origin, it really is yummy! Only 3 ingredients……..crispy French fries, (squeeky Wisconsin) cheese curds and the best brown gravy ever!!! All served screaming HOT!! And, yes, those are Wisconsin cheese curds!!!!! I’m not sure knowing/having the recipe is a good thing, though, so I will leave that pursuit up to you, the reader!!!
