GO Burger and BLT Burger in New York City.
| February 4, 2014

Poutine is a common Canadian dish comprised of french fries, topped with a light-brown gravy-like sauce and cheese curds. Usually found and sold in pubs or roadside "potato shacks", this popular dish is a staple in Canada, but generally foreign to the rest of the world.

Why would you want to put poutine on a burger?

Because this creative recipe takes the most common pairing with a burger (fries) to a whole other level, by adding cheese and rich brown-gravy, which is then placed on top of the burger. The Winter Olympics only happen every four years,  so spice up your normal recipe and make the ultimate poutine burger!
