    What is a ricer? Can I just use a mixer?
    As far as curds - I tend to use a suitable substitute ingred (in this case my favorite cheese) if I cannot find what the recipe calls for. This tends to happen quite often with MS recipes!! :)

    I made the recipe with mild cheddar cheese instead of cheese curds and it was great!!
