Cheese Bread: "Pão de Queijo"
I recently did cheese bread balls, which is a covert/snack we all adore.
I did a normal bread dough with flour, salt and water that rested for half an hour.
Then, I shapped the dough in small balls. Before baking I inserted cheese cubes inside the balls, closing carefully.
After baking the small balls for 30 minutes in 220ºC oven, the cheese melted and gave the bread a wonderful taste.
I used a Portuguese cheese called "Queijo da Ilha", which is produced in Azores island. This cheese is salted and has a strong taste that reminds me Italian Parmesan. It was yummie!
See you soon.
