Pão de Queijo: Brazilian Recipe Attempt #2

brazilian-cheese-rolls

So, last week I made brigadeiros and announced that I would be trying as many Brazilian recipes as I could over the next couple months in honor of the 2014 World Cup’s host country. Since I woke up this morning craving something savory for breakfast instead of the cookies I’ve been eating with coffee lately, I decided it was time to attempt my second Brazilian recipe.

Pão de queijo (cheese bread) is exactly what you think it is. These little rolls are best eaten hot right out of the oven, (at least that’s how I liked them.) The recipe I tried, recommended eating them with sweet spreads which sounded weird to me at first, but I ate a few with Nutella and they were really good like that. Bonus: If you’re avoiding gluten, these are gluten-free since they use tapioca flour. This was the first time I made anything with tapioca flour, but I loved the chewy texture it gave the inside of these rolls so much that I would love to use it again in other recipes.

Thankfully I froze the majority of the rolls so I didn’t eat them all day long, and now I have enough to accompany two future dinners. Carlos hasn’t had a chance to try these yet, but my boys both liked them.

The recipe I used for my pão de queijo is over on The Other Side of the Tortilla if you want to try it yourself!
