Canadians must know what they're doing, because anyone who thinks to combine French fries, cheese and gravy into one harmonious dish is genius in our book. Making fries at home can be laborious and messy to boot, and since we're obsessed with anything pretzel (especially for the start of football season) we've made our mark on the venerable poutine with this new spin we think you'll dig.

Beer. Cheddar. Bacon. Pie. That's right, I'm about to show you how to eat beer, but not just beer. Cheese too. AND bacon. And I even threw in a little charred broccoli so you can justify the existence of this pie in your house to your significant other. You might have trouble going back to pizza afterwards.

15 Epic Rice Side Dishes

Recipes for rice that look great on your plate
Aug 20, 2014 2:00 pm

Let's hear it for a side we all know and love: rice! There are at least a million ways to spin it — long-grain, short-grain, brown, fried, all risotto'd out, so believe it when we say that narrowing all of our beloved rice recipes down to 15 was a challenge. But that's how much we care about our readers' side dishes. From the best coconut sticky rice ever to basil pesto-spiked arancini, you've got plenty of choices, so break out the rice maker, the wok and the Fry Daddy and get cooking.

We talked to owner Noah Bernamoff at our big wild brunch-themed Test Kitchen yesterday, who told us all about his epic culinary brainchild. You shouldn't need reasons to hit Mile End (in Brooklyn or Manhattan) extra-hard this week, but just in case, allow him to convince you.

In 1982, Petro’s Chili and Chips popularized the walking taco at the World Fair in Knoxville, Tennessee and now, Morgan’s Barbecue is bringing the dish up north to New York City. Chef Andres Fernandez’s frito pie is served old-school style in a slit-open Fritos bag, smothered with Texas red chili and topped with white onion, cheddar cheese, sour cream, scallions and Morgan’s signature slow-smoked brisket. The recipe, after the jump.

Your favorite new baked pasta recipe, right this way. 

Oh Mon Dieu! It's A Brisket Poutine Recipe

Fries meet tender brisket and hot cheese sauce
Mar 27, 2014 2:00 pm

There's no shortage of great bar snacks during Craft Beer & Spirits Week, or we'd never make it through. We borrowed a brisket poutine recipe from Miami Beach gastropub Tongue & Cheek (home of the $2 happy hour beef cheek slider) that pairs just as perfectly with an expertly crafted whiskey cocktail as it does with a huge hoppy beer. Supreme satisfaction, right this way.
