Unless you're from Canada, chances are you've been deprived of poutine -- our favorite greasy dish -- most of your life. Poutine recipes, in their most basic form, are made with French fries, gravy and cheese curds. It hits the spot when you leave the bar at 2 o'clock in the morning -- or on a brisk autumn midday, just because.
Luckily, poutine is on the rise in the United States. Many burger joints are offering it in place of fries (which we couldn't be happier about) and some chefs are opening up restaurants that serving nothing but poutine. But if you can't find a supplier near you, poutine recipes are easy to make at home.
