Poutine is fries with cheese curds and gravy. This is fries, cheese curds, gravy, and bacon. There you go. You don’t need a freaking recipe.
Alright, this is bacon poutine!
There's enough gravy - it's just all at the bottom.
It's hard to make it float at the top.
So, first impressons?
How did it look?
I'm not in Quebec anymore.
It looked delicious.
... and the looks were not deceiving.
The bacon gets a bit lost in the sauce.
To be honest, I'm eating around the bacon. I really like poutine.
I really like bacon.
I'm just going to eat the bacon separately.
Maybe we should point out that Mel has an OCD while eating and she has to eat each individual thing by itself.
You get used to it.
*To Adam* It's not a problem for anybody but you.
It's not a problem, it's just wrong.
It's gotten better, it used to be that food couldn't touch other food. It was very difficult when plating things.
I don't think I've ever had bacon poutine before, but this is fucking awesome. Sometimes I find that with poutine it becomes...
... a giant bowl of amazing?!
Well, yes, but it's very monolithic in its flavour.
You mean that its all awesome?
The awesome combines into a singular, so it's not like the cheese curds are awesome and the gravy is awesome, it's all awesome.
Oh my god I forgot my wine pairing with this!
You can't pair wine with poutine...
Yeah you can, it says with fresh cheese and this is fresh cheese. Hold on.
I like how every couple of bites you get some bacon in there, and it just makes the flavour that much more awesome.
I like how every couple of bites I just get cheese curd and gravy.
The trick with making poutine at home is to make sure you buy the St. Hubert poutine sauce.
Because it's from Quebec.
You know you can't have poutine in England because of their health laws? You can't have cheese curds.
I remember I once got this poutine at Alexandra's. You know how the coast always raved about their poutine? Well I got it, and it was this nasty, dark gravy with terrible fries and mozzarella cheese. It wasn't a poutine - it was disappointment. It was worse than their fucking shawarma. I love shawarma, but they fucked that shawarma up. It was almost as bad as the shawarma I had at Tarek's where they put fucking sriracha sauce on it.
I should mention, I'm off the dope. I'm just on the liquor now. It's not as efficient.
It makes you more personable.
It makes me happier.
Yes, it makes Adam happier.
It also makes you less of a cunt.
*Cough* Hahah, well, that's sort of what I was going for.
You know you could just say cunt. I'm not one of those cunts who hates the word cunt. Cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt cunt...ry.
Well then, it makes you less cunty - that's for sure.
Would the dog eat it?
Ate it in record time, and then chased the bowl around the kitchen as he licked it.
Quote of the night:
If you cry into the poutine it just gets saltier.
Oh I know. This isn't my first time at the rodeo.
