What’s poutine? If you haven’t encountered this delicious Canadian comfort food, you’re in for a treat. All you need to know is that it’s French fries covered with cheese and gravy. We made our version with sweet potato fries, sausage, maple syrup, and bacon on top – because bacon makes everything better.
Pass the poutine, please!
