Haven't tried this yet, but thought I'd share what I've learned about the origins of Poutine. Bill Casselman's 'Canadian Food Words' has an entry on it, and I found a link: http://www.billcasselman.com/canadian_food_words/cfw_six.htm

Fabulous! I had a package of Poutine gravy mix that was sent to me by the lovely Leslie from Canada and have saved it for the ZWT. I was so excited I found this recipe to use the gravy with! We LOVED it! I could not find comte cheese so had to use the gruyere option. I also used the balsamic vinegar option to deglaze the pan. Super easy to make and a crowd pleaser. We will definitely have these again! Thank you Marramamba!! Zaar World Tour 4. Whine and Cheese. UPDATE: I chose this recipe for one of my Best of Zaar World Tour 4 picks!

More like a good potato hash with cheese, but you can see a vague outline for poutine here. I splurged and made up a packet of Swiss Chalet Gravy I had been sent, to serve over this, thus living the poutine experience more closely. ;-) It may be too hot in Greece right now to enjoy such hearty food, but it was delicious, the kids loved it, and it made me think back to the chip wagons I used to buy poutine from when I attended Ottawa U. A very good version of the 'real thing'.

We both loved this touch of Canada. We were introduced to poutine many years ago on our first trip to Toronto & miss it very much between our visits. This dish was easy to prepare & had a great taste. I didn't use the balsamic & used grated cheddar cheese, as it was all I had. Made some gluten free gravy to go with this - not quite poutine gravy, but wonderful anyway. Thanks MarraMamba for sharing this keeper. Made for ZWT4

My husband and I love this dish! I did not peel the potatoes, I grated the cheese, and I chopped the bacon before adding it back in step 7. Otherwise, I made it as directed. Thanks, MarraMamba! Made for ZWT4.

These are really good and so easy to make. I used my Vidalia Chop Wizard to dice the potatoes into even cubes. The bacon and cheese are a must. Thank you MarraMamba!
