So it is time for our tradition of New Year’s Day breakfast food recipe!

Thoughts Before Baking:

My friend Quinn loves to try out all kinds of new recipes whenever we get together. She is also a world traveler so I wasn’t surprised that she wanted to make a Brazilian dish. This recipe comes from Olivia’s Cuisine

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups tapioca flour (We couldn’t fine it so we used regular flour)
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • ½ cup water
  • 6 tablespoons oil
  • 1½ cups grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 cups shredded Mozzarella cheese
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons salt

Directions:

  1. Preheat oven to 400F degrees with a rack in the middle.
  2. Combine the milk, water, oil and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil over medium high heat.
  3. Add the flour to the bowl of a stand mixer and, once the milk mixture boils, pour it over the flour. Turn the mixer on and mix it well.
  4. With the mixer still on, add the eggs, one at a time.
  5. Once the eggs are incorporated, add the cheese, a little at a time, until fully incorporated.
  6. The dough is supposed to be soft and sticky. However, if you’re worried it’s too liquidy, add some more flour.
  7. To shape the balls, wet your hands with cold water and, using a spoon, scoop some of the dough to shape balls that are a little smaller than golf-sized.
  8. Place the balls on a baking sheet covered with parchment paper.
  9. Top with shredded cheese.
  10. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until they are golden and puffed.
  11. Serve them warm! 🙂

Thoughts After Baking:

These were really good. I wasn’t sure what to expect but they came out a cheesy and delicious biscuit.
