Pao de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Puffs)

Pão de Queijo Brazilian Cheese PuffsI have been to Brazil twice, it is one of my most favorite vacation destinations. And the food...the food is incredible. I have never had these before, but within a 24 hour period my friend Marianne and my mom had talked to me about making them. Both had different recipes, Marianne's from the internet and my mom's from the couple that cleans her house, who happen to be from Brazil. I went with my mom's recipe. These were awesome. Miss F, C and I devoured 16 of them between the three of us over dinner. And I think Miss F ate the most. Or maybe I did. I served them with Ribeyes with Chimichurri and Maduros.  I found the tapioca flour in the natural foods section of my grocer.
Pão de Queijo (Brazilian Cheese Puffs)

1 egg
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup milk
1 ½ cups tapioca flour
½ cup mozzarella cheese, grated
1 teaspoon of salt

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Grease a 24 cup mini muffin tin with cooking spray. Put all of the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Pour mixture into each muffin tin. Place muffin pan on the oven’s middle rack and bake for 18 to 20 minutes, until completely puffy and starting to brown. Remove from oven and serve warm.

These look delicious! I've never been to Brazil, but I've heard the food is fantastic. Do you have any other Brazilian recipes?

I am so glad you made these! They are melt-in-your-mouth good!!! I may need to make a batch tonight.

My husband would love these. He's all about cheese.

If these are the same things they serve with dinner at the churrascaria, these are delicious! I could probably easily eat 16 myself :)

I think I might make another batch to keep on hand for breakfast!

Mmm, yum.

I made a similar recipe for a final exam in my International Cuisine class--they turned out absolutely awful. These look muchhh better than mine did. Mine were an awful, rubbery, gooey texture. Bleh.

I've made these several times, but with a different recipe. I also use parmesan cheese. They are fabulous! I will have to try this recipe. I like that it calls for less oil than the one I use.
