Cheese Bread with a pop twist.

Who is in the mood for a comfort food snack? Have you ever heard of the Brazilian Cheese Bread? It's not a puff, not a scone nor a bread… It is a small ball made of parmesan cheese, eggs, oil and tapioca flour. { the pop twist here was adding steamed potatoes to the dough to make the texture lighter. After it's baked, the exterior will be slightly crunchy and the interior will melt easily inside of your mouth } . It's super easy to make and so far in my life, one who ever tried it became a huge fan!

( if you are lucky enough to own a Thermomix, look for the " Pão de Queijo " recipe on the Cookidoo app, you can use the preparation method and only change the quantites - oh, and also, blend the potatoes e knit the dough ) If NOT, don't worry, I got you covered, no fancy equipment required for this recipe! Check out. 1. PAN → milk, salt, oil. Turn off the heat when some steam appears but it's not boiling yet. → ADD tapioca flour and mix it well. 2. Let it cool down a little ( it's good when you can leave your finger for a seconds without burning ) and ADD the eggs to the mixture, STIRRING well. 3. SMASH the potatoes using a fork. → MIX into the tapioca and egg mixture. 4. Let it REST for 10 min. 5. Meanwhile, preheat the oven to 350 F ( 180C). 6.
