Steve makes a good point that some Americans would think "poutine" is too weird a word to want to try it, and furthermore French! Many Americans probably never tried quiche for the same reasons. (BTW I'm having quiche for brunch in a few minutes as soon as it's finished baking.)
To these American ears, the word "poutine" sounds like an activity that best happen in the outhouse.

In Texas we always got our FF with gravy e.i. highly seasoned white sauce. And I didn't even know I was eating poutine?

Not in my world!

And BTW when I said protein I had meat or chicken in mind. I didn't stop to think that protein comes from other places than animals. This is just a case of meaning one thing and typing something else.

Unless you had cheese under the gravy you weren't. The cheese an integral part of the dish. I'm not sure, but I think the gravy used is usually a pretty dark gravy, not a white sauce per se.

You'd like poutine Addie, all the really BAD things for you that taste oh so good! We'd get you munching again in a heartbeat.

Poutine "sauce" is supposed to be 1/2 beef gravy + 1/2 chicken gravy. Personally, I prefer turkey gravy on poutine (and that's what I use when I make poutine at home--add the bits of turkey....yum!), but the gjetost poutine I made with lingonberry-beef gravy was really, really good...All this discussion about poutine has me craving poutine!

Okay now that you're adding turkey I'm starting to perk up a bit.

Yes, I'm going to buy some french fry's this weekend, some cheese curds and make some beef gravy. I'm going to try Poutine Pies and love the heck out of it. Should top off the diet from heck that I have had this past week.

But PF, be forewarned, it may become something you crave on a regular basis...
