“French fries with curd cheese either cheddar or mozzarella or both with brown gravy. Kids are hungry on a long trip and if you have most of the recipe prepared, it is a snap to finish and serve when you stop. There is an optional ingredient..vinegar. You may wish to use or forgo that ingredient. My kids love the vinegar & salt potato chips & some like it on their poutine.”
