Fried Cheese Curds | Bottom Left of the Mitten
Instructions
  1. Open the package of cheese curds and place them on a plate. Let them ‘sweat’ for about half an hour.
  2. Set up an assembly line of 1 plate flour, 1 bowl of whisked eggs, 1 plate of breadcrumbs mixed with salt and Italian seasoning.
  3. First, roll a cheese curd into the flour.
  4. Next, dip the cheese curd into the egg.
  5. Roll the cheese curd into the breadcrumb mixture.
  6. Place on a large cookie sheet with a wire rack. Continue with the rest of the curds.
  7. Put the cookie sheet with the cheese curds into the freezer and let sit for 30-60 minutes.
  8. Set up a frying assembly line. In a cast iron pan add the oil. Bring to frying level. On another cookie sheet add paper towels.
  9. Add about 10 curds to the pan and fry for about 40 seconds, then flip. Fry another 10 seconds.
  10. Remove and add to the paper towel sheet to drain.
  11. Work these fried cheese curds in batches.
  12. Once they are all cooked serve immediately with rach or my favorite, marinara sauce. Enjoy!
