Wisconsin cheese curds are unlike any other cheese you will find in the United States. Fry it, and you’ve really got an irresistible treat! I decided to put a little spin on the traditional recipe for cheese curds with this gluten-free cheese curds recipe.
- Heat oil in deep fryer or frying pan
- Combine flour, xanthan gum, salt, milk, white wine, bacon pieces, parsley, and egg in a bowl. Mix ingredients; batter should be thick.
- Completely coat cheese curds in batter.
- Place battered curds into heated deep fryer, or frying pan for about 5 minutes, or until curds are golden brown.
The #1 biggest tip I can offer is to use fresh Wisconsin cheese curds. My local market only makes their curds on Thursdays, so I know to stop in on Thursday. Find out from your store when they make their cheese curds.
I did two versions of these: the curds pictured are cooked in vegetable oil in a deep fryer. I also tried pan frying with coconut oil, which worked pretty well. Even so, the flavor of the curds fried in vegetable oil was much more enjoyable
