  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon whole milk
  • 2 cups Italian Style Breadcrumbs
  • 16 ounces cheese curds
  • vegetable oil for frying


  • Combine flour and salt in a shallow bowl. Stir to the salt is incorporated evenly. Break eggs into a second shallow bowl with 1 tablespoon of milk. Beat the eggs. Place breadcrumbs into the third bowl.
  • Coat the curds first with flour, then the egg, and finally the bread crumbs. It is very important to coat the cheese curds evenly and thoroughly. Place coated curds on a wire rack resting in a rimmed baking sheet. Freeze the cheese curds for 30 to 60 minutes.
  • Set up another wire rack on a backing sheet or line a plate with paper towels. Pour enough oil into a large skillet or a pot to reach about 2 inches of oil. Heat the oil over medium-high heat. Use a thermometer to make sure the temperature is 375 degrees.
  • Frying a few curds at a time, carefully drop a few in at a time. Do not crowd the skillet. Fry for about 1 minute, turning them once. Cook until they are golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon. Enjoy immediately.
