We're not really into the World Cup over here at Alisú headquarters, but we love eating.
And we just so happen to have a special penchant for Brazilian food, particularly Pao de Queijo. Essentially a cross between warm french bread and a cheese, these perfect little balls of mushy heaven are normally served as pre-meal snacks, or to accompany the usual heart-attack inducing Brazilian dish.
We've sourced an easy-to-make recipe below so you can make this delicious bread at home and binge eat during the fútbol matches alone at home this Friday night. Feel free to share with your cats.
- 2 cups tapioca flour
- 1 cup milk (I use 2%)
- 1/2 cup butter (or margarine)
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 cups grated Parmesan cheese
- 2 eggs
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit
- Bring the milk, salt, and butter to a boil in a sauce pan while constantly stirring mixture
- Once boiling remove the mixture of milk, salt and butter from heat
- Slowly add tapioca flour, stirring constantly until thoroughly mixed
- Add the cheese and eggs to mixture; mix until smooth
- Fill each mini muffin cup all the way up
- Bake until golden brown, usually about 20 minutes
