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!

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!
