Brazilian Bread Balls
We have given these bread balls our own name based on a word one of my kids invented when he was two. We call them cheese pacos (pronounced like taco).
Cheese Paco RecipeHeat the following ingredients in a small saucepan until white foam appears.
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/3 c. water
1/3 c. milk
1 tsp. salt
Immediately add this to:
2 c. tapioca starch
Stir with a wooden/heavy spoon or spatula. Let rest about 15 minutes. (Sometimes I shorten this to 5 min.)
1 c. grated hard cheese (such a Parmesan, but I have also used cheddar)
You will have a sticky gooey mass.
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).
