This is chef Eli Sussman. He is the genius behind Thanksgiving poutine.

He's also the executive chef at Mile End Deli in NYC, where every summer there is a dedicated “Poutine Week” to celebrate the glory of Potatoes + Cheese Curds + Gravy + ANYTHING. He has also co-authored three cookbooks with his brother, Max Sussman, all of which are dedicated to delicious, crave-able food without pretension.

The Thanksgiving poutine that Sussman made recently in the BuzzFeed test kitchen can be made either from scratch, as you'll see below, or with Thanksgiving leftovers. It's essentially a pile of Thanksgiving foods with cheese curds on top, which is as good (and filling) as it sounds.

Unsalted butter, carrots, parsnips, fingerling potatoes, thyme, rosemary, cheese curds, turkey gravy, smoked turkey, Italian parsley, challah, celery, chicken stock, olive oil, kosher salt, and freshly ground pepper.
