Brazilian Cheese Bread (Pao De Queijo) - tastes just like the fancy Brazilian steakhouse bread! Super easy to make and tastes great! Milk, oil. salt, tapioca flour, parmesan cheese, mozzarella cheese, and eggs. Can use any cheese you prefer. We love this bread with everything - steak, pork, chicken, salad, and soups! #glutenfree #bread #cheesebread #braziliancheesebread
Preheat oven to 350ºF. Line a baking pan with parchment and set aside.
In a large saucepan, over medium-high heat, boil milk, oil, and salt, whisking occasionally. Remove when you start to see large bubbles forming. Working quickly, stir in the tapioca flour. The dough will become VERY tacky and gummy. It will almost become gelatinous.
Transfer dough to the bowl of a standing mixer, fitted with the paddle attachment. Turn mixing speed on low and gradually increase to medium. Beat the mixture for 2-3 minutes until it begins to become smooth. Add the grated cheeses and incorporate. Turn the mixing speed down to low and add eggs one at a time, beat on medium for 2-3 minutes until a sticky, stretchy dough forms.
Using a large cookie scoop, create portions by dipping scoop in water, scooping the batter and placing onto the prepared baking sheet. Place in oven and bake for 25-30 minutes, or until the tops and sides are lightly golden in color and the outsides are crisp. (They may look a little greasy, but that’s just from the cheese, and they won’t be greasy when they cool.)
Remove from the oven and allow to cool on the sheet a few minutes before serving.
Can use any cheese you prefer instead of mozzarella cheese.
