Poutine . . . again!

Lots of you Canadians evidently know all about poutine, but us Californians are clueless. I just read a GREAT post on a blog I follow that gave the best description yet of poutine, so I thought I'd share. Enjoy!

I found a food truck up the road that has poutine on the menu. I'll go back to test the poutine because the fries seemed like they could hold up against sogginess.

Its a chore, but someone has to report for the ETI rally goer's.

I tried poutine last Sept. when we went to Chilliwack to pick up the trailer and I didn't think it was all that bad. At least I'm still alive. Loren

Those going to Osoyoos will need to stop at the petrol station right by the cg entrance, their poutine is quite good.

I can't eat something that looks like I already did.

Like any dish, it is only as good as the individual ingredients. You need good potatoes fried, a good gravy, and good cheese curds. If any one falls short, it affects the overall taste of the dish.

I have had poutine that I thought was not good at all, but some that was absolutely fantastic.

I think I had mentioned on here, but last Sunday morning at Edible Canada, a restaurant on Granville Island in Vancouver, I had an Oxtail Poutine that was absolutely fantastic.

EDIBLE CANADA OXTAIL POUTINE
braised oxtail, Quebec cheese curds, gravy,
sunny eggs, fried onion, duck fat frites

Can you get poutine made with Canadian bacon ? . When I was a kid we only had Canadian bacon on special occasions and it is one of my fondest childhood memories.

I think you can only get Canadian bacon in the US.

From Wiki:
"Canadian bacon" is American usage for a form of roughly cylindrical fully cooked back bacon, usually smoked, trimmed into medallions, and thickly sliced.[3] The term "Canadian bacon" is not actually used in Canada, where the product is generally known simply as "back bacon", while "bacon" alone refers to the same streaky pork belly bacon as in the United States.[3] "Canadian" bacon is made only from the lean eye of the loin and is ready to eat; this preparation is closer to ham than standard bacon.[3]

When I worked in the packing house we turned out some fantastic Canadian bacon. I made friends with " Harley the Smoker" and he'd slide me a hot out of the smoker 10 lb loin. We'd cut it up and open a couple boxes of Ritz crackers and eat it on the spot off of a paper towel. Wowser, very good. Better than temple meat with BBQ sauce or pork pancreatic glands with real horseradish. An army can't march on an empty stomach was our mantra.

You have not had bacon until you've had jowl bacon, makes sow belly hide in the corner in shame. 6 years on the kill, 4,000 a night running 642 an hour. 5 % credit for packers, 97 man gang. Sunshine bonus, 32 hour guarantee, Baglo, if you'll judge the tin box oven cookin contest at Osoyoos I'll bring you a headin' knife made for a man with a steel wrist.

We used the jowl meat when we make head cheese .If you want to try a real treat try walleye cheeks .We fry up a batch when we go fishing in Canada. Takes a lot of walleyes cheeks to make a dinner so we have them as an appetizer.

Down in our country we slice out the cheek meat on catfish if you get a good one. When my son and I hunted bear near Horne Payne, Ontario in 2010, the guys in the next cabin had us over for a fish fry. They had a whole frying pan of walleye cheeks. Might have been slightly over the limit, did not ask. Tasty. Fried spuds and onions, better than pouting to me.

I hope the potatoes and onions were fried in bacon fat . Fish , bacon , eggs and fried potatoes with onions is one of my favorite breakfasts whether deer hunting or fishing
