Regional fries-spinoff from the "quirks"

Yay, french fries!! so bad for you, and yet so good.

....How are fries done in your area?? (not just how you like them by your lonesome)

In Nfld, where i'm from....aside from the malt (my preference) or regular vinegar which is always on the table ...a common menu item in alot of fish and chips places etc are "fries, dressing and gravy".....basically homemade fries, covered with home made dressing/stuffing (bread crumbs, onions, summer savory), and smothered in gravy. This stuff kept me going through university because it was one of the cheapest items out there. Still love it, but rarely eat it.

Another menu item was the "trucker's special"........basically a heart attack on a plate...fries smothered in such things as fried onions, hamburger, deep fried (yes deep fried) chopped hot dogs and gravy. i'm not sure what else goes on this. I've never eaten it.

A dish seen a couple of times in Nova Scotia "the mess"..........fries, hamburger gravy...and if you want it the traditional way, topped with a scoop of ice cream ( I have no idea why this is )

and yes, the ever favorite Poutine. fries..cheese curds and gravy. how can that be wrong?
