“A cheese curd is an orangish cheese byproduct that feels like Silly Putty but tastes a lot better. It was invented accidentally by UW cheese scientists attempting to create an object of pure cholesterol that would still squeak. Rats who are fed this remarkable food develop an unusual capacity to polka and drink beer.”
Why am I posting about cheese curds? Because Bonnie was hungry for them. Plus, I ::heart:: cheese. I always have. In fact one day I ate a whole 5 lb. block all by my lonesome. I had a few issues for a couple days after but it didn’t affect my love for cheese. lol. Anyway, I digress. Below is a recipe for Deep Friend Cheese Curds. However, my favorite cheese curds are not the deep fried variety but the kind you buy in a bag – also known as Squeeky Cheese.
