    ciao's Note:

    This recipe has been posted from a request. I've had this several times and it is extremely good! Measurements are strictly up to you! Cook time is estimated for french fry cooking time. And # of servings is also up to you! Do you want to share or have it all for yourself? I suspect once you taste it, you won't want to share! If you are having trouble finding the cheese curds, I found this info online: To make your own: Wrap cottage cheese in cheesecloth and place in a colander or strainer nested inside a bowl. Place in the refrigerator until much of the liquid has drained into the bowl. Substitutes: jack OR Muenster

      Note to all - Poutine originates from Quebec, Canada. It's yummy and not at all good for the waist line. I use cheese curds but in a pinch mozerella can be substituted (only if absolutely necessary)! Italian poutine can be made by substituting spaghetti sauce for beef gravy.

      I love this dish, it has been a staple in my entire life. I like to crumble chives and bacon on the top, with lots of pepper! uMMMM. I only allow myself to eat this once in a while, cause its soooooo bad, but sooooo good!
