Brazilian Bread Balls
  • 2 cups tapioca starch or flour
  • ½ cup vegetable oil
  • ⅓ cup water
  • ⅓ cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup grated hard cheese (such a Parmesan or sharp cheddar)
  1. Place the tapioca starch in a mixing bowl.
  2. Heat the oil, water, milk, and salt in a small saucepan until white foam appears.
  3. Immediately add it to the tapioca starch and stir with a wooden spoon. Let rest about 15 minutes.
  4. Stir in the eggs and cheese.
  5. Drop by spoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until top begins to brown. I bake them about 20-25 min. on stoneware. You can vary the cooking length to make them crispier (more time) or softer (less time).
