Go to any state fair in the Midwest and you're likely to see lots of folks enjoying Fried Cheese Curds. We don't blame 'em! Deep fried cheese curds are irresistibly good, with a crispy coating and a mouthwatering molten center. They're basically golden nuggets of goodness!
What You'll Need
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1 cup beer
- 2 pounds cheese curds
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
- 3 cups vegetable oil
What to Do
- In a large bowl, combine buttermilk and beer. Add cheese curds and mix until evenly coated; set aside.
- In a shallow dish, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper; mix well.
- In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil until hot.
- Remove curds from buttermilk mixture using a slotted spoon, making sure to drain curds well. Place 1/4 of the curds in flour mixture and toss until evenly coated. Place curds in oil making sure not to crowd, and fry 3 to 5 minutes, or until light golden. Drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining curds; serve immediately.
- For a tasty dipping sauce, try mixing 1/4 cup of ranch dressing with 2 teaspoons of hot sauce. Of course, you can dip your cheese curds into any of your other favorite dipping sauces, too!
- If you're having a hard time finding cheese curds in your local supermarket, you can buy them online at The Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery.
