Several years ago, while traveling along the trans-Canadian highway, I had a delightfully disgusting food item for which I cannot recall the name. I hope someone out there can think of it. I vaguely remember that it had fried potatoes of some kind that were covered with a gravy and a cheese. I am hoping that someone on a fly fishing adventure stopped in a road house once and had this fare. Jason, my apologies for insulting the sensibilities of some. I've been trying to think of this for over a year. Even my wife, who spent years in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, cannot name this treat.

POUTINE! Now I can rest in peace.

I suppose Hexagenia could be served in a similar way. It might even rival the calorie content.

Poutine, huh?

Sounds a lot like what we used to call Coronary on a Plate, which was scrambled eggs studded with big chucks of fried taters and patty sausage and covered with about a quarter inch of cheddar cheese.

It was delicious and I'll bet this Poutine is as well...
