I remember eating poutine, before I even knew it was called that. It was eaten with leftover gravy, usually after xmas or thanksgiving, or a roast beef meal. My mother would roughly cut potatoes and fry them in a cast iron pan. To round out the meal, we would also chop up whatever meat there was leftover and toss that on, too.

There is another type of poutine that originated in Quebec called Galvaude. It is with chicken and peas... https://www.google.ca/search?q=Galva...w=1123&bih=509

Northward to Pennsylvania?
I've mentioned several times that the town store, which rarely carries anything outside the their box, has started carrying vacuum sealed cheese curds. I make poutine all the time. And really, the "Disco Fries" I made Sunday were not too far off. No squeak, but fries, cheese and gravy
Keep looking, Hoot. They might show up in your cheese cooler.

Does it have to be cheddar cheese curds? We have a local restaurant that sells their fresh mozzarella, made every day.

I like fries with gravy, but I don't know about the cheese curds.

So funny! I had never heard of poutine until I began traveling to Canada for work, a few years back. But growing up as kid in Georgia we had a local hamburger joint call "4 Way". Yep, it was at a 4 way intersection. As a kid I would get gravy fries. It was fries, topped with brown gravy and then grated cheese. Now many years later, I found out that I was eating poutine. The ladies at the 4 Way would have wash my mouth out with soap if I had ordered Poutine in the 60's.

Nope, doesn't have to be cheddar curds, but it's the most traditional. I don't see fresh curds too often at grocery stores, but I can get fresh Gouda curds at Costco, so that's what I usually use.
