Can't wait for the next event that we'll be at?  Well, wait no more!  Here is how to make your own Wisconsin Fried Cheese Curds™  at home...beer battered style, of course!


Making your own Wisconsin Fried Cheese Curds™  at home is relatively easy.  You just need a few ingredients, some patience (about 5-10 minutes from start to finish), and an empty stomach!  (You'll need an empty stomach because once you have one, you'll want more!)

Items Needed:

  • Personal Deep Fryer (or a skillet pan)
  • Tongs
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 serving container
  • Napkins
  • Vegetable oil
  • Half a can of your favorite beer (preferably a Wisconsin brand!)
  • Cheese Curd Batter Mix (sold on our Food Menu page)
  • 1 bag of cheese curds (sold on our Food Menu page)



  1. Preheat oil to 350F – 375F degrees
  2. In the bowl, slowly mix together the Cheese Curd Batter Mix and beer
  3. The batter should be fairly thick and free of lumps.  (Add extra beer or batter mix as necessary to reach desired consistency.  Soupy batter mix makes a BIG mess)
  4. Dip the cheese curds in the mix (frozen cheese curds work the best)
  5. Gently shake off excess batter
  6. Carefully place the covered cheese curd into the heated oil
  7. Fry 1-2 minutes or until golden brown (over-frying will cause the cheese to ooze out from the batter casing)
  8. Strain, eat, enjoy, wipe excess oil from lips with napkin, repeat!

(For a beer-free recipe, follow directions on back of bag.)
