Tinier things are always so cute. That's why I chose to work with mini quail eggs instead of regular eggs.. the good news is that even though the egg shell is all brown and speckley--they taste exactly the same as normal eggs. Phew.
I love Chef Jonathan Sawyer's animal style poutine at The Treehouse Tavern downtown Cleveland, I wanted some so bad today.. but I was feeling too lazy and poor to make the trip down to East 4th. Unfortunately I didn't end up using real cheese curds. I couldn't find a place close enough that sold them!! I've never actually seen any place that sells them and like I said I didn't feel like traveling too far or spending big bucks because well, let's just say Sundays are my lazy days. I ended up using a soft provolone cheese and it tasted just fine with everything. I also ended up using freezer isle french fries! Ore-Ida has a newer designed package of "Country Style French Fries" that says, "Sea salt & Olive Oil". They honestly tasted really similar to home made french fries--nothing like gross freezer aisle french fries, I swear! So if you don't feel like going through the process of peeling potatoes (yikes) and deep frying them, then don't worry! Go buy the Ore-Ida's, no one will ever know. ;)
So poutine can come with plenty of different toppings, but my favorite has always been animal style... which means fries with gravy, meat (pork belly), and cheese. It's kind of awesome that you know it can't be good for you with all of the carbs/grease, but at the same time it's just way to fricken' good to care.
I don't want poutine, I NEED POUTINE!!!!! <3
