Burger King Canada Tops Poutine With a Burger
When a restaurant serves poutine and has burgers in the building, it seems like only a matter of time before someone gets the idea to combine them. But Burger King Canada has taken the experiment beyond the mere "cool idea" phase and added burger poutine to the menu nationwide.
According to Brand Eating, the dish is officially called “Poutine à la Burger,” and it is a bowl of the chain’s regular French fries topped with gravy, cheese curds, and a hamburger with all the fixings, including pickles, ketchup, mustard, and a beef patty chopped into bite-sized pieces. Burger King already had regular poutine and poutine with bacon on the menu, so throwing a burger on there was clearly the next stage in poutine evolution.
One order reportedly has 880 calories, 46 grams of fat, and 1490 milligrams of sodium, but with a name like “Poutine à la Burger,” nobody thought it was going to be diet food.
