Gluten-Free Brazilian Cheese Breads

My Mom made these cool little cheese breads – cheese breads that are gluten-free and yet still full of flavour!!

Once again, these are so easy to make that it is almost ridiculous. The best way to mix together the ingredients for these cheese breads is in a blender. However if you’re one of the poor saps who doesn’t have a blender then this can be done with a handmixer. Our experience is that the blender-mixed ingredients make for puffier and nicer breads.

The ingredients:

  • One and a half cups of tapioca flour
  • 2/3 cup of milk
  • one egg at room temperature
  • one heaping teaspoon of salt
  • 100 g of grated cheese – a combo of cheddar and mozzarella cheeses works well
  • 1/3 cup Olive oil

Once the ingredients are mixed, pour the mixture into well greased mini muffin pans. The above list of ingredients makes enough mixture to fill 24 mini-muffins. It is best if you have the two muffin pans ready to go.

Bake for 20 minutes in an oven preheated to 400°.

The cheese-breads are best when eaten warm, shortly after they have come out of the oven. However they are also yummy as little sandwiches or as the hipsters say, sliders.
