Goddamnit Canada, first Justin Bieber, now you infect the US with taking the only good thing about Canada and putting it on top of a burger?  Why are you even a country?

It's an open-faced hamburger steak if there's no top bun.

It's really not that different than a disco burger, and disco fries are basically poutine, so...

...and a not so polite heart attack.


Two please, to go...

or as we used to call it in NYC back in the day, a hamburger with a side of disco fries to go, in a styrofoam container, after a couple of block's walk home and a few flights of stair, after a night of heavy drinking.

Fold it on a tortilla shell instead of a bun and it would be a poutine burger taco.  BAM it's North America in one food item.

/can't call it gross, never had poutine before

+1

... and while I've had it with either beef or chicken based gravy, I have no idea what that white stuff is on top...

Polite drone attack ... to combine USA and Canada. That's beautifuly done.

Looks like a horseshoe sandwich, but with gravy instead of cheese.

Why isn't poutine taking the US by storm?  Eating disgusting, unhealthy slop thrown together by fat chefs is America's hobby.

I've always wanted to see poutine served on crackers..

1. Poutine is Canada's greatest contribution to the planet. It is amazing and I wish more "real" Americans would embrace and spread its status as artery clogging deliciousness to a menu near you.

2. The comments on that article are genius:

"This is much better than the "Putin Burger", which is just a slab of freshly strangled Siberian tiger meat, topped with ammunition and vodka."
---"I had that once. Later that day I destablised my neighbor's family and annexed their pool."

The Putin Burger: a burger that they will let you have but then will want to annex it back 25 years later.

I was thinking the same thing.

Man, I wish I was at D'arcy's Pint right about now.
 
2014-04-28 08:19:16 PM
It looks like they clumsily slapped some fries and gravy on a burger. I'm sure it's tasty because it's fries+gravy+meat but I'm not exactly excited.

WTF Canada?  What did we do to you to deserve this?  First you ruin french fries, now you're ruining hamburgers?

We call them "hot hamburgers" around here. Just use cheese instead of curds. Not new.
 
2014-04-28 08:32:55 PM
No doubt about it, if I ate that, I'd be poutine pretty hard a couple hours later.
 
2014-04-28 08:33:05 PM
I'm surprised poutine isn't big here in WI, considering that you can get deep fried cheese curds at just about any restaurant in the state, seems like a no brained to put our own twist on it.
 
2014-04-28 08:33:33 PM
The meat is pink. It looks disgusting. Also, that poutine is way too lean.
 
2014-04-28 08:33:51 PM
Blechhhh....give me a prime rib jammed into a sub roll with bacon, white cheddar and bacon. Splash with Worcestershire sauce and top with fresh onions and jalapenos.

Looks a lot like someone got a burger and fries with queso and said screw it, I'm too lazy to eat two things

FTFA: I always wonder why poutine hasn't caught on here in the U.S., and I think it's because you can't drive while eating it.

No Canada, it's because Poutine tastes like shiat, especially when we Americans prefer artery cloggin' chili. I mean, why the hell would an American eat freakin' poutine when something like Tommy's original exists?

Really Canada. THIS is how it's done.

Just don't make a habit of it, Canada.

You've long advertised yourself as versatile, after all.

I'll try one without the e. coli.

I freaking love poutine. It's better with waffle fries instead of regular fries.
 
2014-04-28 08:53:12 PM
So, the first picture is of a man that appears to be about to blow chunk.  Somehow, I don't think that is going to motivate people to embrace it.  Who edits these things?

Who's buns?  Can I watch?

/probably not a good idea if they're from WI
//Too many people from there sweat their own butter

Thirded..or whatever number i am now. Seriously, fries are meant to be crispy, and eaten off to the side. That includes onion rings, (stop putting them on the burger) and the last thing i want on my burger is cheese curd.

/Nice quarter lb size patty, (your cheese of choice) seasoned with Worcestershire sauce and lawreys seasoned salt, pepper, and cooked over a grill, not a pan or stove. Preferably, with a nice Smokey flavor such as mesquite. Onion bun with sesame seeds, and miracle whip,. bread and butter pickles, and bacon...sweet sweet life giving bacon.
//Consume with beer of your choice. Or even a couple.

/soaking that horrid flop of a disastrous movie in gallons of gravy would only minimally increase its viewing pleasure, in fact, slipping it in the player covered in gravy would make it not play, therefore dramatically increasing my viewing pleasure of it.  Way to kill a good book producer.

buttering buns is pretty hot stuff

Sandwich Monday has been around for a couple years at least. They have some great stuff over the holidays.

Timely!

SO is bringing home crazy awesome fresh cheese curds tonight. Any good poutine gravy tips? I also have some corned beef stock frozen from March... Uh, I assume if I use that for a gravy base instant heart attack?

/not putting it on a burger
//wouldn't be classy

My brother was a big fan of fried cheese curds when he lived out there. It seemed very Wisconsin-y.

He brought back some fresh ones a few times. Never bothered poutining or frying them, they were awesome on their own. Or with some kielbalsa and crackers and apple slices for a lunch. Especially the dill ones. Yummy.
