There was a restaurant in Utah that we enjoyed going to, it was a Brazilian place that served meat and veggies that had been cooked on skewers. Once of the things my husband enjoyed most was these Brazilian cheese rolls that they served. They were very light and full of lots of cheese flavor. As I was cruising through a favorite blog of mine Our Best Bites I found a recipe that claimed to be the best and very similar to these rolls that we liked so much. I knew that I had to give these a try!
The only problem that I had was they were very specific that you had to use Tapioca flour and it could not be substituted with anything else. Well this became a problem for me since I live in a little town with only a Wal-Mart. I looked all over my local store hoping that they had Tapioca flour and finally I had to resort to the internet. Luckily I found it and waited for it to arrive. These were super simple to make and tasted just like the Brazilian Cheese rolls from a favorite restaurant of ours. Defiantly give it a try!
Quick Brazilian Cheese Rolls
~ 1 egg
~ 1/2 cup milk
~ 1/4 cup oil
~ 1 cup Tapioca Flour (sometimes labeled tapioca starch) no substitutions
~ 1/2 tsp. salt
~ 1/4 cup grated cheddar cheese, medium or sharp
~ 1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray a mini muffin tin with non stick spray.
2. Place egg, milk, oil, tapioca flour, and salt in blender and blend until smooth. Add cheeses and pulse 2 times. Immediately pour batter into mini muffin tin, filling each about 3/4 full. If desired, sprinkle a bit of Parmesan cheese on top and a tiny sprinkle of salt.
3. Bake for 15-20 minutes until puffed and golden. Remove from oven and cool for a few minutes before removing rolls from pan. Serve warm. These don’t reheat well so eating fresh is best!
