Beer Battered Cheese Curds

Cheese Curds 1
While living in Minnesota, we were introduced to fried cheese curds and totally fell in love with them. I mean, how could you not like battered, deep-fried cheese? One of our favorite places in Minneapolis to eat, Psycho Suzi’s, had the best cheese curds and we miss them dearly since moving.

When we were at the farmer’s market last weekend, we stopped by a little cheese stand and they had cheese curds! I couldn’t resist grabbing a bag and heading home to batter them up for an appetizer!

Joel may have gone out to throw steaks on the grill and promptly come back in to see me sitting on the couch, with my feet on the coffee table and the basket of these balancing on my belly. I may have inhaled half the batch during the 30 seconds he was outside. And I may not have felt a tad bit bad about any of it. These are all hypothetical situations of course.

  1. Oh my goodness, I can’t wait to try these! I always pass on cheese curds at the fair because I’m cheap and won’t pay 5 bucks for a small handful of curds. lol My kids will be just as excited when I tell them what’s for snack in the coming days.
