5.0
3 Ratings
These little balls of chewy, cheesy goodness can be bought in every bakery across brazil. With a soft crust and tender interior, they are a perfect snack or breakfast. They may taste like they are a lot of work, but really the recipe is super easy and made with simple ingredients - there are no substitutions for the tapioca flour, but it can be found at most grocery stores in the Asian section.

Author's Notes

Balls may be frozen on the baking sheet after step 7, then transferred to an airtight container and baked when desired - simply add 5-10 minutes onto the baking time.

Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
Step 2
In a large bowl, whisk to combine the Tapioca Starch (3 2/3 cups) and Salt (1 tsp) . Set aside.
Step 3
In a small saucepan over medium heat, warm the Whole Milk (1 cup) and Vegetable Oil (1/2 cup) .
Step 4
Add the hot milk/oil to the bowl with the tapioca and salt. Stir with a wooden spoon until fully combined - it will be quite crumbly and gummy at this point. Let it cool to the touch.
Step 5
To a mixing bowl, add Shredded Mozzarella Cheese (1 cup) , Grated Parmesan Cheese (1 1/2 cups) , and Large Eggs (2) . Mix until combined.
Step 6
Add the egg cheese mixture to the cooled dough and mix until everything is combined. Start with a wooden spoon, and then finish with your clean hands to really combine everything.
Step 7
Form 2-inch balls and place them on the prepared baking sheet 1-inch apart (they will spread, but not too much).
Step 8
Bake for 15-20 minutes, or until the tops are very lightly browned. Overcooking will result in a hard crust!
Step 9
Serve warm.
