When I was pregnant with my daughter I hated all things chicken, and you could make my day with two things, a big hamburger or cheese sticks. I am talking about the gooey fried ones that have the decadent cheese pull! I don’t know what it was, but man those two things were heaven on a plate to me. My husband being the amazing man that he is, loves chicken. I would try and choke it down for him, and about the only thing he knows how to cook is chicken. So one evening, I was so sick, he said he would make dinner. He made chicken. Even the smell of it cooking turned my stomach. Bless his heart, he was trying. He gave me a beautiful plate, I took a couple of bites and started crying because it tasted awful. (In reality it was really good.) He got me a burger and some melty cheese sticks and all was right with the world.
Well my daughter is now 7 and I love chicken again. But I also still really love gooey fried cheese, I mean who doesn’t! I am always on the hunt for really good ooey gooey melty cheese goodness! I still really love a good hamburger too. These two things that are seemingly so simple are the absolute easiest things to mess up. It’s often the simple recipes that really shine or flop. I remember the first time I had Culver’s. I was new to this area and had never heard of Culver’s before. But I have always been a burger lover and so I most certainly would give them a try. Culver’s has these delicious butter burgers that simply melt in your mouth. The use fresh, never frozen 100% midwest beef. They make every burger to order, and sure this takes a little longer, but it’s certainly worth the wait. These burgers melt in your mouth! Give them a try.
So really it was a no brainer for me to try their cheese curds. A little back story about Culver’s. The original restaurant was started by Wisconsin natives and a son of a cheese maker. He spent the early part of his career being a dairy farm inspector and grading the quality of those farms. This company knows their dairy and their cheese! Culver’s cheese curds are made using un-aged Wisconsin white and yellow cheddar. Deep fried to a golden brown, they are the epitome of ooey gooey cheddar goodness. Their cheese curds are provided exclusively by La Grander Hillside Dairy in Stanley, Wisconsin. There’s just something about knowing exactly where your food is coming from. This aspect is something that’s lost in the modern fast food business. But it’s something that Culver’s has managed to hold on to. I really like that.
I could not wait to try these! Each batch is made to order, so again it takes a little longer, but its oh so worth it! When you order at Culver’s you are given a number and you set that order number on your table. Once your food is ready it’s brought out to you piping hot. These cheese curds are amazing!!! That cheese pull though! They were golden, crispy and delicious all the way through! I would get these again and again.
If you are a fried cheese lover, these will be love at first bite. Head on over to Culver’s on National Cheese Curd Day on October 15th and grab yourself some delightful cheese curds!
