Brazilian Cheese Rolls (Paud de Queijo) Recipe

Paud de Queijo, a bread with a crunchy outside and a gooey, cheesy inside, is a great side dish for any get together or meal. And it’s easy to make, too! All you will need is a blender and a mini muffin tin. Takes about 25 minutes from start to finish.

Here’s what you’ll need for a batch of 16-24 rolls:

1 large egg

½ cup milk

¼ canola oil

1 cup tapioca flour

½ tsp kosher salt

¼ C grated cheddar cheese

¼ C grated parmesan cheese

Optional: Extra cheese to sprinkle on top and any herbs/flavorings you’d like to add (rosemary, garlic powder, ect…)

Here’s how to make it:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees fahrenheit and prepare a mini muffin tin with non-stick spray.

Blend the egg, milk, oil, tapioca flour, and salt in a blender until smooth. Make sure not to overbeat, or you will end up with tall, hollow rolls (though they will still taste good).

Add your cheeses to the blend and pulse 2-3 times.

Immediately pour batter into prepared muffin tin, filling about ¾ full or slightly less. If desired, sprinkle a bit of parmesan cheese on top and/or a tiny sprinkle of kosher salt.

Bake fur 15-20 minutes or until puffed and golden.

Remove from the oven and cool for a few minutes before removing rolls from the pan. Serve warm.
