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.
