Only second to the original pão de queijo, a staple of the Brazilian cuisine also know as Brazilian Cheese bread or cheese puffs, here is the cheese waffle, a very Americanized version to something very Brazilian! What Brazilian Fusion is all about!
CHEESE BREAD WAFFLES! As the name suggests, is maybe 2-4 pão de queijos in the form of waffles to enjoy for breakfast or to make a sandwich with at lunch!
These are great if you don’t have all the ingredients, time or resources to make a tray full of cheese puffs! And quite frankly, it is a lot easier!
What you do: .
Brazilian Cheese Waffles
For the typical waffle or base for creativity:
3 tbsp of tapioca starch
1 heaping tbsp cottage cheese
2 tbsp shredded mozzarella
2 tbsp any milk
A pinch of salt (optional)
- Chopped ham (for ham and cheese variation)
- Sundried tomatoes + oregano (for a pizza taste)
Mix all together and pour on heated waffle iron and wait until done. End product should look like this, crispy on the outside and deliciously soft gooey goodness on the inside.
