State Fair Crescent Cheese Curds

Fried curds are a snap to make when you wrap them in premade dough.

State Fair Crescent Cheese Curds

Get the kids in the kitchen and have them help wrap the curds in the dough. If you can’t find cheese curds in your grocery store, you can use mozzarella sticks or other cheese sticks, cut into small pieces.

Ingredients

  • 4 Cups vegetable oil
  • 1 8-ounce can refrigerated seamless dough sheet, such as Pillsbury™ Crescent Recipe Creations™
  • 8 Ounces cheese curds, any variety (about 1½ cups)
  • 8 wooden skewers
  • Condiments, such as ranch dressing, Sriracha, ketchup, or flavored jam, if desired

Directions

In a deep fryer or 3-quart heavy saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat to 350 degrees F.


Unroll the dough, and cut lengthwise into 4 strips, then cut crosswise into 8 rows, making 32 squares.


Roll a piece of dough around each cheese curd (no larger than 1 inch). Stretch the dough, and press to seal the edges and completely cover the cheese curd. Repeat for the remaining cheese curds.


Fry the cheese curds, 8 at a time, turning occasionally until the dough is completely cooked through and deep golden brown, about 1 minute. Drain on paper towels, and keep warm.


Thread 4 cheese curds on each wooden skewer. Serve immediately with condiments if using.
