Pao de Queso

Have you ever been to a Brazilian churrascaria such as Texas de Brazil or Fogo de Chao? If you have, then you've definitely had these delectable little cheese poufs. They are chewy, soft, and cheesy. If you've never had them, make this recipe now. You can thank me later.

What is even more awesome is that everything gets blended in a blender. That's it. You are done. Stick it in the oven and you have appetizers for your dinner.

1 ½ cups of parmesan cheese (you can also use swiss, cheddar, or any other grate-able cheese)
1 ½ cups of corn oil
1 cup whole eggs
2 ½ cups of tapioca starch (often found in Asian grocery stores)
1 cup of 2% milk (we used whole milk)
Several pinches of salt


1. Blend all ingredients in a blender.

2. Spray a mini-muffin tin with vegetable oil. Pour mix into cup tray filling each to the top.

3. Place it in oven 350 degrees for 15min, until light brown.

4. The bread should be baked and served immediately, so you can truly enjoy its full flavor. This can be frozen and reheated, but fresh is probably best.

Probably the easiest appetizer you can ever make!
