Fried Cheese Curds

It’s Minnesota State Fair season! If you are from Minnesota or Wisconsin, you know and love fried cheese curds. I’m not sure about other states, but here in Minnesota, fried cheese curds are sold at the state and county fairs, of course, but they are also available at restaurants and even some fast food places. These Fried Cheese Curds were surprisingly easy to make and they were just like the ones from the state fair.

Fried Cheese Curds


  • 2 lbs cheese curds
  • 1½ cups buttermilk
  • 1½ cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp garlic salt
  • 1 egg
  • 1½ quarts oil (vegetable, canola or peanut oil)

Heat oil to 375 degrees. (Use a thermometer and watch carefully)

Whisk together buttermilk, flour, baking soda, garlic salt and egg until smooth.

Coat several cheese curds with batter.

Fry a few at a time, for several seconds, until golden brown.

Drain on paper towel.

Enjoy while fresh!

I’m a married mother of 3. Who loves living in Minnesota, prep ahead cooking, and couldn’t live without them now. No more worries about the age old question “What’s for Dinner?”. I am also transitioning my family into the slow food and clean eating movement. I believe it’s best if we can eat food in it’s most natural state. I love to share the information I have been gaining through this whole experience. I’m also a trained personal chef. Cooking is a passion and hobby of mine. Hope your are enjoying the content of my blog.
