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

  1. In a large bowl, combine buttermilk and beer. Add cheese curds and mix until evenly coated; set aside.
  2. In a shallow dish, combine flour, baking powder, salt, and pepper; mix well.
  3. In a soup pot over medium heat, heat oil until hot.
  4. 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.

Notes

  • 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!

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

I do not think I have seen cheese curds in my local market but I may have luck at a specialty market or somewhere like Whole Foods. I am interested in trying this recipe because who does not like fried cheese?

Leave a comment...If these fried cheese curds are anything like the fried mozzarella sticks I am sure these will be a favorite at my house.

Cheese curds are the BEST. I can't wait to try these!

This recipe was inspired by Elvis, who had a love for all things peanut butter, bananas, and bacon! We may not be able to perform rock 'n' roll like our good friend, Terry Buchwald, but our Peanut Butter Banana French Toast Bake is our way of paying tribute to the King.
