  • 2 qt (8 cups) oil for frying
  • 6 eggs
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 lb Ellsworth Cooperative Creamery Cheese Curds
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 package bacon
  • Marinara or other sauce for dipping


  • Heat oil in deep fryer or heavy skillet to 375°F.
  • In medium bowl, combine milk and eggs; whisk until smooth.
  • In another bowl, toss cheese curds with flour to coat. Place panko breadcrumbs in third bowl. Dip cheese curds in egg mixture; then roll in panko bread crumbs to cover. If curds need additional coating, dip again in egg mixture and bread crumbs.
  • Slice each strip of bacon in half and wrap around breaded cheese curds. If necessary, use toothpicks to keep bacon in place.
  • Fry cheese curds in batches for approximately 60 seconds each batch. Drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with marinara or your preferred dipping sauce.
