Seriously, I can’t believe how many different foods there are in the world! When we find something that we have never tried before and I’m like “WOW” why didn’t I know about this.

This little cheese bread fits in this category! Yes, Zac found these little delights and we are glad he did. They are perfect little snacks or a great side dish that is gluten-free.

Brazilian Cheese Bread


2 cups Tapioca flour
1 cup milk
1/2 stick of butter
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup Mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 eggs
