Beer Batter Cheese Curds
My youngest son LOVES when we go out to eat and the first thing he looks for on the menu are cheese curds and fried pickles. OBSESSED!
Yes Yes I know not healthy at all, but I make sure that I shove fruits and vegetables in his mouth everyday, they even get past all of his griping about having to eat them :)
These little golden cheesy bites are very simple to make, very similar to my Fried Pickle recipe.
If your from the Midwest it's practically written in the bible that a good cheese curd has to be squeaky!
Here is what you are going to need:
2 pound bag of fresh cheese curds, we went for the white cheddar curds
1 Cup flour
1/4 cup milk, whatever you have on hand we used 2%
3/4 cup of a beer of your chose, we used a light beer
1/2 Teaspoon salt
1/4 Teaspoon Cajun seasoning, I went with my favorite Tony's
Oil for frying
How to Make them:
Start by warming your oil, carefully sprinkle the oil with water to see if it bubbles. That is when it is ready.
In a mixing bowl stir together all ingredients saving the curds till last.
Add only 5 or 6 curds into the hot oil at a time otherwise they all clump together, I know from experience here.
Cook the curds approximately 1 to 2 minutes until golden brown, carefully remove the curds with a slotted spoon.
Lay them out on a plate covered my a paper towel to drain off any excess oil.
Serve warm and enjoy!!
