      Actually it’s a Canadian favourite from Quebec. It’s called poutine. Chips (fries), gravy and hard cheese curds. Don’t know if that’s the way you made it. Delicious. Will make you very fat, though.

        Yeah, that's the new term in NYC for them.

        The original term is "poutine"....

        also, disco fries are made with two slices of processed cheese (yuck!)

        whereas

        poutine is made with real cheese curds.

        The taste and texture is much, much better the original way!

          Poutine is from Quebec. It's not standard gravy either, in the original... it is a special recipe based on chicken broth (or something like that I think)

            Beth100posted 7 years ago in reply to this

            You are correct.  The broth is thickened into gravy consistency.

            This dish is easily made at home, and can be made to be less fattening.  smile

            I'm not promoting myself, but.... the history of poutine is in my Canadian Invention's hub.

            lol, you're right I should man up and try these things, it'll put hairs on my chest. smile

            The Hot-Sauce may be a problem though, not sure we have that over here, maybe it's called something else.

                  It does, we probably do have it, but not the sort of thing I would usually seek out. 

                  Last time I ate a Chilli I had to drink like a bucket of water and nearly passed out, lol. smile

                I'll make sure I wash my hands thoroughly first after dealing with the Hot-Sauce, not sure I want any getting on the old fella, it sounds like that shit could sting a little.

                Although... smile

    Whereabouts in the UK do you live Sophs? I always thought chips with gravy was a Northern thing, I hadn't heard of it until I moved up there. Havent had it, but I imagine it's pretty good.

    When I was at school everyone used to eat chips, cheese and beans. I don't like beans so I never had it, but it was pretty big.

    I generally only eat cheesy chips when I'm drunk, they taste much better then!!

      Ohhhhh yeah people used to have that at our school too! But beans were 30p and gravy was only 5p, and my Mother was always tight with dinner money! Haha!

      Ohhhhh cheesy chips are niiicce! You just have to make sure you use the right cheese smile

    I believe the chips are fries and here in FL we have them covered and smothered. Gravy, cheese, onions. If for breakfast though I opt for sausage gravy and cheese. Shoot, now I'm hungry.
