I thought of another difference. We don't get turkey today.

Wunderbar

Macintosh Toffee (not that I like the stuff, but I know many Americans who always ask me to bring it whenever I come to visit)

Bob & Doug McKenzie

Good beer

That's just what I can think up off the top of my head.

Also, I'm pretty sure this is an "only in America" sort of thing:

The idea of eating contests is revolting.

When I make poutine, which is probably only once a year, I make my fries in the oven, the way I always do fries. Maybe that helps them stay more crispy? I also use either canned beef gravy, or that powdered stuff you mix with water and bring to a boil. Much less fat than the real stuff, but still high in sodium. I generally use a lower fat mozzarella, too. Still yummy, but not as bad for you as what you'd get in a fast food place.

ugh, i've had poutine. i haaaaate it. i don't like gravy with fries at all, and the cheese curds were gross. i'm more of a fan of just melted cheese on my fries, if i have a topping on them.

The thing about this poutine stuff, chaps, is that the word "poutine" itself does not scream "appetizing dish." Rah-thuh, it screams..........oh, I dunno.....it sounds like a carpet-cleaning fluid.

I come from the land where poutine was originally created and is still consumed in mass quantities. The word itself literally means "mess" in French-Canadian slang, and you can see why it's called that.

In my humble opinion, the best poutine is in Quebec. I've tried it in other locales and, while good, is not quite the same as in Quebec. Done right, poutine is quite delicious, and the gravy is really what can make or break it. In Montreal, there are places that sell "gourmet" poutine, with whatever added toppings you wish. My personal favourite is poutine au gratin(in the oven) with smoked meat.

If anyone ever visits Montreal, I invite you to let me know and—provided I'm actually there at the time—I'll show you around and take you to a very good poutine place.
