Cheese Curds...the BEST thing to ever happen to cheese. These ooey-gooey bite-sized appetizers will literally fly out of the bowl.
Heat oil to 375 °F. Use a thermometer to continually monitor the heat of the oil.
Whisk together buttermilk, flour, baking soda, garlic, salt, and egg until smooth.
Coat 8-10 cheese curds with batter.
One at a time, add the batter covered cheese curds into the oil. Cook for several seconds, until golden brown and then remove and drain on a paper towel. Repeat with remaining cheese curds.
