makes approx 40 curds or 8 servings


  1. In a food processor, pulse the BBQ and Fiery Hot Puffs to a fine crumb, then stir in the coconut flour. Portion about half of the mixture in a shallow dish and set aside. *We like to use a small amount of the crumbs to bread the curds to start, then refill as needed. This cuts down on clumping!
  2.  In a separate bowl, whisk the egg and heavy cream until smooth. 
  3. Add a handful of cheese curds to the egg mixture and toss with a fork to coat. Remove one at a time and gently roll in the puff crumbs, pressing the crumbs into the cheese. Place on a plate and repeat with the remaining curds. Add more curds to the egg as you go and refill the puff crumbs as needed. 
  4. Refrigerate or freeze the coated cheese curds for 30 minutes before frying. 
  5. To Fry: Fill a deep skillet with enough avocado oil to cover 2 inches up the side of the pan. Heat over medium high until the oil reaches about 350F. 
  6. Use a large slotted spoon to drop the curds in the hot oil one at a time and fry for about 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove to a paper towel to cool, then repeat with any remaining curds. Serve hot!
