We’re one of those families that has a lot of trouble getting out the door in the morning for school. No one wants to skip breakfast, but sometimes breakfast has to be an on-the-go affair. That’s why one of our kids’ favorite grab-and-go meals or snacks is these Brazilian Cheese Puffs (known as Pao de Queijo in Brazil).
These cheese puffs are currently being featured on the Cacique USA blog. To make these puffs, we used Cacique’s classic Queso Fresco. It’s a soft, buttery cheese that crumbles very easily and softens when heated without becoming stringy (when our kids first tasted these cheese puffs they thought there must be some kind of cheese in there but they couldn’t quite put their finger on what it was).
Amazingly, they’re also gluten-free – they are traditionally made with tapioca flour. You can find tapioca flour in the gluten-free or specialty flour section of a well-stocked supermarket. Enjoy!
