The Creamery’s history of sharing the goodness of dairy in the local community runs deep. Their deep-rooted legacy began when local farmers built their plant more than 65 years ago. Made locally, their cheese is made daily and served to customers in many forms — from fresh and flavored cheddar cheese curds to aged Cheddar or smooth Monterey Jack cheeses, and more. Here is a recipe for mouth-watering Air-fried Creamery Cheese Curds.

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 lb​​ Creamery Cheese Curd
  • 1 ½ cups ​​All-Purpose Flour (may use AP Gluten Free Flour)
  • ½ tsp ​​Garlic Powder
  • 1 tsp​​ Onion Powder
  • 1 tsp​​ Paprika
  • 1 tsp​​ Salt
  • ½ tsp​​ Black Pepper
  • 4 Large​​ Eggs, well beaten
  • 2 cups ​​Panko Breadcrumbs (may use Gluten-Free Breadcrumbs)

Instructions

  • Remove cheese curd from bag and break up into large pieces into a medium bowl and set aside. Pieces that are about the size of your thumb will cook for the best consistency.
  • In a shallow bowl or container, add flour, garlic powder, onion powder, paprika, salt, and pepper. Blend well then set aside.
  • Break eggs into a separate bowl. Use a whisk to completely blend whites and yolks then pour into a shallow bowl or container and set aside.
  • Place panko or breadcrumbs into a shallow bowl or container.
  • Place bowls from left to right, Panko or breadcrumbs, Egg, Flour, and Cheese Curd, for the following 2-coat breading process.
  • Place a few pieces of cheese into flour and lightly coat them. Then place them into beaten egg, making sure they are completely coated.
  • Then for a second coat, place the cheese curds back into the flour, then to the egg again.
  • Finally, place them into the breadcrumbs and coat well. Put the finished product on a plate to hold.
  • Once you have a small batch of curd breaded, Place them into the Air Fryer basket. Spray them with cooking spray and cook at 400 degrees for 5-6 minutes until brown
