I love French fries dipped in just about any kind of gravy! Traditional Poutine uses brown gravy and cheese curd. I like to add a little crumbled bacon and green onion to enhance this already delicious dish. Also, to make this dish more affordable I use plain old shredded mozzarella in the bag but you could certainly use fresh mozzarella curds instead and make it even better!
