Menno Poutine: a Mennonite version of a Canadian classic

I first had Menno Poutine off a food truck at our local street fair.  I was obsessed from the first bite.  I just had to come up with a version I could make at home. Oh Ba Yo! It’s creamy sauce, stringy cheese curds, and smoky sausage all heaped onto one plate. A Mennonite version of a Canadian classic!  My version uses Bothwell Cheese curds and locally sourced farmer sausage.
