Disclaimer: I have never had proper poutine before. I have only been to Canada once, and I didn’t really eat anything. I just remember drinking. Cheap drinks up there, eh?
This week, Henry and I took our newly 2 month old, Graycen Olivia to California to see some Redwoods. And by “see some Redwoods,” I mean sleep or cry (but mostly sleep) through the entire car ride. On the way home, we stopped in Bandon, Oregon, for a much needed breast feeding sesh and coffee for mama. Desperately, I pulled into the first large-ish parking lot, Face Rock Creamery. I changed a diaper, and Henry went inside to scope the coffee. Diaper changed, Henry came out and told me they had ice cream, wine, and cheese. So of course, we all went in. What an amazing little place. We tasted so many awesome cheeses and I got enough coffee to sustain me for the rest of the drive home. We bought some cheese curds, just ’cause, and Henry suggested poutine. When we got home, neither of us wanted to go to the grocery store for what we needed to make proper poutine (which neither of us have had), and so Henry and and I came up with a breakfast poutine idea.
- Hand off baby so you can have a drink and cook dinner
- Take the drink your husband makes you and make it stronger
- Make sausage gravy
- Make hashbrowns
- Layer garlic cheese curds between hashbrowns and gravy.
