So, what exactly are cheese curds?
They are a super fun, pop-in-your-mouth dairy treat that squeaks when you bite ‘em! But eat them quickly because these bites don’t last for long in my house!
What are Cheese Curds?
Cheese curds can be made from nearly any heavily milk-based cheese, but cheddar cheese curds are the most common!
Cheese curds are “young” forms of cheese and are often packaged and sold as the by-products of regular cheese before it goes through the aging process. Cheese curds are most popular in the Canadian dish called poutine!
How to Serve Them
These little bites are great added to a charcuterie board! Use cheese curds as part of an Antipasto Platter or alongside an assortment of pickled veggies like Pickled Asparagus, Easy Pickled Eggs, Refrigerator Pickles, or some Quick Pickled Jalapenos.
