I call this side dish Blue Cheese Poutine after the Quebec style poutine because of the cheese. True, there is no gravy with this dish, but there is lots of freshly ground black pepper, kosher salt and lemon, not to mention the blue cheese. I served it for dinner with grilled lamb chops, but it would go equally well with just about any kind of steak. It was a really nice change and not a lot of work.
