Fogo de Chao is a wonderful Brazilian barbeque restaurant. These cheese puffs are like pop-overs but they are softer and much more delicious. They do use special tapioca flour to make them extra soft and fluffy.

Fogo de Chao cheesy bread puffs
These light puffs are a wonderful addition to any meal.
- 1 1/2 cups whole milk
- 1 1/2 cups sour tapioca flour (azedo)*
- 1 cup sweet tapioca flour (doce)
- 3/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
- 3/4 cup corn oil
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a 12- or 24-cup mini-muffin pan or small dariole molds. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is smooth. Fill each muffin cup three-quarters full. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Breads should be crisp on the outside and hollow on the inside, like a popover. Serve warm.
*Sweet and sour tapioca flour can be found at Brazilian food stores.Print Recipe
