These sinful puffs are heavenly. I made them for lunch today and I think I ate 12, oops.
If you have ever eaten at Fogo de Chao or any Brazilian steakhouse you have probably indulged in these bites of goodness.
This is a copy cat recipe but I have tweaked it a little. The original recipe calls for two different kinds of tapioca flour and I can never find them both so I just use the one that I can find.
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 1/2 cups tapioca flour/starch
3/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup oil
1 teaspoon salt
Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Lightly grease a 12- or 24-cup mini-muffin pan. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl. Mix well until batter is smooth. Fill each muffin cup three-quarters full. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Breads should be crisp on the outside and hollow on the inside, like a popover.
Serve warm and enjoy!
