First, THIS is Poutine – thanks to Badhappy:
The classic canadian dish, as created by Badhappy Poutine in Chicago: thick cut fries drenched in a rich brown gravy and topped with cheese curds. From that standard beginning, Badhappy lays on everything from a fried egg to truffles to pork belly and more…
More on Badhappy in a moment…but from the masterpiece you see above you, let’s take a trip to the far north and see what is going on there AS WE SPEAK:
Behold The Poutine Pizza!
Well, I guess it had to happen: Poutine has been abused AGAIN! I offer as evident the Cheesy Beef Poutine pizza from Pizza Hut in Canada.
Pizza Hut Canada announced the arrival of the “Cheesy Beef Poutine Pizza”, which takes classic Canadian poutine (French fries topped with cheese curds and slathered with gravy) and transforms it into a pizza with “shaved seasoned steak” and mozzarella.
Behold The “FrankenPizza!”
Eater calls it a “frankenpizza” – and says that it is part of the Pizza Hut’s five-pizza limited edition “Something for Every Canadian” menu “inspired by Canada’s cultural diversity,” and is available only in Canada. I can only imagine how excited food fans in Canada are about this…
According to Eater, there is more than just one poutine pizza for you. Other flavors include Creamy Butter Chicken, Asian BBQ (with the “sweet and bold flavours of Asian BBQ sauce”), Grilled Chicken Club (a “tribute to Canada’s perennially popular sandwich”) and Smokey Maple Bacon (Alfredo sauce, maple bacon strips, mushrooms, cheddar).
I have to say, on the poutine pizza pics shown here, those look A LOT like regular frozen french fries…Badhappy Poutine in Chicago must be rolling over in its fryer right about now…
Congrats to the “So Good” blog!
