Canadian Poutine

Do you know what Canadian poutine is? Honestly, I had no idea what Canadian poutine was.  How I learned what poutine was when I described how I ate Kennywood fries: brown gravy and melted cheese!

Cheddar Cheese Curds

I told a friend that at Kennywood Amusement Park, in Pittsburgh, we would eat fries with melted cheese sauce and brown gravy. He told me that is Poutine if you substituted cheddar cheese curds. I had no idea that was Canadian poutine!

What is A Cheese Curd?

So what exactly is a cheese curd? Cheese curds are the moist pieces of curdled milk either eaten alone as a snack or in the popular poutine recipe.

Canada Steak Burger

I love creating fun burger recipes with Angus beef. So for this Canada steak burger, I wanted to stuff with sautéed mushrooms and onions. This Canadian burger is what I would call a knife and fork sandwich. 


To make this Angus beef burger recipe a Canadian burger you need brown gravy and cheddar cheese curds!  Yes, this Canadian burger messy, that is why I call this grilled burger recipe a knife and fork sandwich!
