Make game day an absolute breeze by making this super delicious 5-ingredient sour cream and chive dip for cheese curds, guaranteed to be a crowd pleasing dish!
So, can we talk about game day and snacks for a second? Life gets so crazy busy that sometimes…like the best of them (I hope)… I don’t feel like making anything that will take me more than 10 minutes from start-to-finish! I was at the grocery store with friends on their way to our house, so I walked over to the freezer section to see what my options were and saw Wisconsin Breaded Cheddar Cheese Curds by Farm Rich.
Interesting…cheese curds? I totally had to give them a try, because if you’ve spent any time in Wisconsin, you’ll know that fried cheese curds are pure amazingness. They’re typically only seen at the State Fair or in restaurants. Funny little story about me and cheese curds…when my hubby and I first started dating, we went to the State Fair. I had never had cheese curds, so we got some. I loved them, cheesy cheddar in a crispy breading. Heaven! So I um…I literally had like 3 orders of them at the State Fair, love at first bite. 😉
Something else that is very much a ‘Wisconsin’ centric thing is sour cream and chive dip (just like how this green goddess dip is a thing I learned about in Wisconsin, WI is clearly killin’ it!). It goes so well for dipping cheese curds (or really, anything) into. And the thing I love about the dip is that it takes about 1 minute to make! With 5 simple ingredients: sour cream, mayo, lemon juice, garlic salt and chives, it is perfect for this week’s Five Ingredient Friday. This dip can also be made ahead of time, saving time on game day.
With my newly purchased Cheddar Cheese Curds, I headed home to give them a try, and I have to tell you – being completely honest here, I was SO SURPRISED BY HOW GOOD THEY WERE! The taste is spot on. It’s literally like eating fresh fried cheese curds – but these are baked. All you do is open the package and bake them, that is it! So easy and delicious!
Farm Rich offers tips, hacks, recipes and awesome tasting foods that help simply everyday life, and they have a whole section of their website dedicated to “Real-Life Good.”
Everyone who came over for the game was greeted by me saying “omg you have to try these cheese curds” – and they’d try them and then raved about them, because they’re so delish! The Cheese Curds from Farm Rich are lightly breaded, get crispy to a golden perfection, and have Wisconsin cheddar in the center and go perfectly with this 5-ingredient sour cream and chive dip. Next party you have, these should definitely be on the menu! I was so jazzed about this dip & cheese curd combination I even made it to bring to my in-laws’ house for a family dinner appetizer.
