If you're a poutine purist, you might not like this. Newfoundland poutine is a unique version of the classic Canadian dish with an interesting ingredient. The province has been hiding the recipe from the rest of the country.

Canada is home to many unique and tasty secrets like a Nanaimo bar trail, an ice cream flavour, a winter cocktail and more.

This one takes the poutine we all know and love and turns it on its head.

It's pretty much like the regular dish you'd get at a chip truck when you have a late-night craving for it but there's a slight twist to the recipe that you might not expect.

This is made with crispy fries, dressing and gravy.

Now, if you're not familiar with this east coast take on poutine you might be wondering what the dressing is.

The dressing is what most people would consider stuffing like what you'd put into a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner.

So it's basically like a Thanksgiving poutine but it's enjoyed all year long.

You can add in cheese curds too if you want to make it a little more classic or keep them out of the dish to make it Newfoundland authentic.

The Food Network has a recipe for this that you can make at home if you can't get out east for an authentic taste.

Usually, the dressing is made with breadcrumbs but you can use panko which is dryer and flakier.

It should only take about an hour to make.

After the fries and the dressing are crispy and the gravy is ready, you can sprinkle the dressing on the fries, cover it with gravy and then add more dressing on top.

Poutine is serious business in Canada.

NDP leader Jagmeet Singh shared his Punjabi poutine recipe and it went viral.

After he posted the recipe and a video of him making it, Canadians took to their kitchens and tried it for themselves.

Meanwhile, a restaurant in Toronto sells a somewhat controversial unicorn poutine that has rainbow cheese curds and multi-coloured gravy.
