Story by Jenny Paulson – Springside Cheese Shop has announced you’ll be able to sample their deep-fried cheese curds for a limited time in June (on Fridays and Saturdays), however you can purchase the batter mix to make your own at home year-round.
Pueblo’s Springside Cheese company is bringing to Pueblo what we don’t have on our local restaurant menus, but what is a staple appetizer in their headquarters in Wisconsin – where cheese curds are commonly served at bars, restaurants, bowling alleys and at events, including at carnivals, festivals and fairs.
What are they? Well, cheese curds look like little balls of popcorn and feature gooey melted cheese waiting to ooze out of a crisp beer flavored crust. They are considered the crème de la crème of this ultimate comfort food appetizer, from the state which is the leading producer of cheese.
You can dip the cheese curds in chipotle ranch, ketchup. marinara sauce and for you Pueblo natives, I’m figuring you’ll find a way to serve them with green Chile, that you put on everything!
To make them at home you’ll be cutting mild cheddar or another type of cheese (some are made from mozzarella, Colby, or Monterey jack cheeses) into cubes or rectangles that you’ll coat them with the batter mix available for purchase from Springside Cheese. Then you’ll deep fry them in oil at a temperature of 375 – 400 degrees.
Springside Cheese in Pueblo is our Wisconsin factory outlet shop, carrying domestic and imported specialty cheeses, Cheese Curd mix, and gift boxes.
Our Pueblo cheese shop’s service and selection is raved about in reviews on Facebook and throughout the web, even by Colorado Springs residents who say the shop is worth driving to Pueblo for – even those from Denver who say they stop at this shop while they are visiting.
