Introduction

It is a centenary recipe original from my state (Minas Gerais, no other place in Brazil can do so tastefull as in M.G. :p).. because it demands a kind of cheese only made here in the mountains, so better you try some 2 or 3 difFerent cheeses to choose better one).

I´m sorry for my poor English and hope you enjoy the Pão de Queijo.

  • Additional Information

    *there are 2 kinds of manioc starch: polvilho azedo ( sour manioc starch) AND polvilho doce (sweet manioc starch) I like to use 3/4 polvilho azedo + 1/4 polvilho doce, but if you will use only one, use the SWEET one;

    **the cheese must be some yellow and "hard" like parmezzano but not so spicy, (some people use parmezzano, but some less spicy will be better)

    Note: If you want you can freeze. Just take the unbaked breads in a pan into the freezer until hard and separate the portions in small bags. When you want, take from the freezer and let it thaw for 15 minutes before baking.
