In a medium bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir in the eggs and milk. Mix until smooth. If you'd like a thinner batter, add more milk to suit. Toss the cheese curds in the batter.

Heat the oil in a large, heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry the coated cheese curds approximately 1 minute each, until golden brown. Drain on paper towels.

Serve with marinara sauce, ranch dressing, or some french onion dip for the ultimate appetizer.
