Brazilian Cheese Puffs – delightful gluten free morsels

Taste little hollow balls of flavor.

Taste little hollow balls of flavor.

If you’re looking for a gluten free crowd pleaser that’s easy to whip up and no one will ever know it’s ideal for your specialty diet, this delightful Brazilian appetizer fits the bill.  Every time I make them, I think of my daughter-in-law’s family as they all kept their eyes on the oven, anxiously awaiting the first tray out of the hot oven, not wanting to miss that first steamy bite!

These little cheesy bites puff up beautifully and have a lovely golden brown color. Best served warm, they can also be made ahead and reheated at the last minute, though our family has been known to eat them cold — if they ever last that long!

Brazilian Cheese Bread – Pão de Queijo

2 cups tapioca flour
1 cup milk
3/4 cup oil
2 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup parmesan cheese

Put all ingredients into the blender. Blend until well mixed. Pour into oiled mini-muffin cups (or regular muffin cups). Bake in a 400 degree oven until tops start to turn a golden brown, about 20 minutes. Watch out as you take them out of the oven — your guests will be right behind you, waiting for the first taste!

While parents want to provide healthy meals for their families, they often feel they just don’t have the time on hectic school nights.
