Cheese Curd Recipe Roundup

Fried Cheese Curds

WAY BACK in the olden days when I was in college, we didn’t have personal computers, we didn’t have cell phones, and we didn’t have a coffee shop on every corner.  In spite of these deprivations, there was one bright spot: my best friend introduced me to squeaky cheese.

Washington Cheese Company in Mt. Vernon, Washington made fresh curd every day and it called to us.  Patti and I would occasionally hear that call and take an afternoon to head down for a bag of curds still warm from the vat.  We would then climb up the stairs to the viewing room and watch the crew make cheese while we nibbled away.  I had no idea at that time that I would someday meet and marry a farmer…who would become a cheesemaker…and eventually make squeaky cheese.  It’s like the circle of life, only cheesier.

Curd Making

John started making Squeaky Cheese back in March of 2001 and it’s definitely a favorite here at the Cheese Shop, some local stores, as well as three Farmer’s Markets in Seattle.  For National Fresh Curd Day we are celebrating with four recipes using these yummy morsels:

Poutine Hash Brown Waffles: I am just drooling over this take on a popular cheese curd dish.
