The Bacon Wrapped Cheese Curd Bun Cheeseburger

The Bacon Wrapped Cheese Curd Bun CheeseburgerThe Wisconsin Milk Marketing Board recently launched their Summer of Curds promotion for the second year where until September 21st they’re giving away a cheese curd prize pack — including a pound of deliciously squeaky Wisconsin cheese curds — every single day.

To help spread the word about this amazing giveaway they asked me to come up with four over-the-top DudeFoods-esque recipes that utilize Wisconsin cheese curds. Well… here’s the first one!

This Bacon Wrapped Cheese Curd Bun Cheeseburger is sort of similar to a burger I made recently that had deep fried wheels of cheese for a bun, but it surpasses it in a couple different ways. Number one, instead of a wheel of cheese I used fresh cheese curds and two, the cheese curds are wrapped in bacon before being deep fried!

You can check out a video of me making the burger below, or if you want the full recipe just head over to Then, when your mouth is done watering, make sure you head over to and enter to win a pound of fresh Wisconsin cheese curds, an t-shirt, a cheese curd can koozie, magnet and a coupon for more curds (because the best thing to pair with your cheese curds is even more cheese curds).

    Soon to be “invented” by some shady vendor at Summerfest or State Fair…

      Hahaha, probably! I was just reading through a list of new foods at the State Fair this year and There’s a vendor there this year doing a take on the Pabst Blue Reuben, but according to them it’s entirely different because they’re doing Pabst Blue Reuben Rolls.

      On the plus side, Saz’s is selling my Racing Sausages Corn Dog at the Fair this year and being the awesome people they are I’m actually getting credit. It’s only going to be available at one of their locations, but it’s still pretty awesome.

    So insanely good, I’m sad I didn’t think of it!

    Dude – I haven’t thought about you/this site in a good year+ (apologies), and then I get an email today featuring a monolith of cheese and meat? You had me at “the latest…”

    Yea, consumption looks sketchy, but that never stopped Scooby and Shaggy. Apply a little vertical pressure, and alls good.
