  • 2 quarts corn oil for frying

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup beer

  • ¼ cup milk

  • 2 eggs

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • 2 pounds cheese curds, broken apart


  1. Heat corn oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).

  2. Whisk together flour, beer, milk, eggs, and salt to form a smooth, rather thin batter.

  3. Place cheese curds, about 6 or 8 at a time, into the batter, stir to coat, and remove with a wire strainer. Shake the curds a time or two to remove excess batter.

  4. Deep fry curds in hot oil until golden brown, 1 or 2 minutes. Drain on paper towels; serve hot.
