Who doesn’t love cheese? Specially fried cheese curds! For our most recent girls day out, I decided to make fried cheese curds with a hot honey dipping sauce! Here is how it went!
First I started making the hot honey dipping sauce. I copied Kardea Brown’s recipe for hot honey. She serves this with a pickle brine fried chicken that sounds so delicious. Since some don’t like pickles, I will have to save the recipe for another time. LOL Anyways her hot honey recipe was easy to follow. I opted to just use the microwave and bowl, rather than the sauce pan and stove. It still turned out delicious; the perfect sweet and spicy combination!
Next up were the cheese curds. I found these cheese curds at Aldis! I followed Molly Yeh’s recipe from this salad (but opted not to have the salad part).😂 Her recipe called for a homemade beer batter that sounded like the perfect pair with fried cheese! It called for dark lager but I only had light beer, but it still turned out great! Light crispy and delicious!
I was going for a nice golden brown color, which meant that some of the cheese oozed every where and we were left with some empty batter. I didn’t have a lot of oil in my pan so it required me to flip some of the curds and cheese was everywhere! LOL I think next time I will have more oil in the pan, as well as the heat up higher. This will give the perfect flash fry so I still have the nice golden brown color but cheese still inside the batter!
These turned out to be the perfect finger food for a mother-daughter outing! Pair with the hot honey was a delicious combination! I honestly can’t wait to make them again as well as use the hot honey in more recipes -like fried chicken! Do you have your own hot honey recipe? Have you made cheese curds before?! Comment below and tell me all about it!

I believe that hot honey was the star of the dish. You can literally put it on anything. Delicious!!
