Fresh squeaky cheese curds, dipped into a beer batter and deep fried to perfection. A delicious Wisconsin tradition!



  1. Heat oil in fryer or a sauce pan to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Whisk egg and add to flour, baking powder, sugar, salt and beer.
  3. Spray the fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray.
  4. Coat the curds in the batter and use a slotted spoon to place them into the frying basket.
  5. Place cheese curds into the fryer in small batches – no more than 10 at a time.
