Chip butty? Hmm ... that's cool, but I don't remember ever hearing the term, Bucky. Is it Welsh, or English?

And yes, I imagine chip butties would be excellent hangover food. Nothing like a triple carb load to feed the starving liver, LOL.

I feel a need to step in and defend poutine.

Poutine is a mix of fries, gravy and cheese curds (not cottage cheese, as reported earlier in this thread). Sometimes one sees it made with grated cheese here in Ontario, but that's not real poutine.

Poutine is delicious, artery-clogging, and a gift from the people of Quebec to their fellow Canadians. In Canada, or in Eastern Canada at least, one can get poutine at most fast food joints.

Mixing fries, gravy and cottage cheese does sound revolting. Although there are variations of poutine (e.g. using chili instead of gravy), I have never heard of replacing the cheese curds with cottage cheese.

I like garlic on my fries. I also use this recipe with my own handcut French fries.

Garlic Fries

12 ounces Ore-Ida frozen Golden Fries or Country Style Fries
1/2 tablespoon butter or canola margarine
1/2 tablespoon olive oil
2 teaspoons minced fresh garlic (CD used garlic press)
2 tablespoons fresh parsley-finely chopped
2 tablespoons shredded parmesan cheese

Bake fries according to directions on package. Melt butter, olive oil, and garlic in small saucepan on low for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring constantly to mellow garlic a bit. Place hot, crispy fries in medium-size bowl, drizzle with hot butter mixture and add fresh parsley and cheese over the top. Toss to blend. Spoon onto serving plates.

Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.
