Poutine

The birthplace of the poutine is contested amongst several communities in Quebec. The combination of French fries and cheese curds topped with warm gravy dates back to as early as the 1950s. Since then, there have been a variety of new takes on the traditional French-Canadian dish: caramelized onions, bacon, sliced sausage, and Montreal-style smoked meat are just a few examples of toppings that have been added.
