Pao de queijo is a traditional Brazilian bread that's like a popover, a gougères, and a mochi bun combined. They're made with tapioca flour, which makes them completely gluten-free. They puff up in the oven to get a nice crispy exterior, while the inside remains moist, chewy, and gloriously cheesy. A mix of Parmesan and Gruyère cheeses are blended into the batter and they're seasoned with black pepper, nutmeg, and a hint of cayenne for just a little kick. They're great on their own or as an accompaniment to meat dishes. Each order comes with 2 cheese buns.

Aside from getting smaller and smaller (not a bad thing), they seem to be getting harder and harder! Even when heated in oven.

As a typical Brazilian., I understand better than anyone else about pão de queijo, .. This pão de queijo is not only tasty but slightly spicy, this makes this recipe so special. I wish I could give more than 5 stars.

I really wanted to love these because I grew up eating them, but these were not authentic. Baked for too long - a bit dry and not cheesy enough.

This is one of my favorite Munchery dishes. Absolutely delicious.
5 Stars
These are delicious. Kind of cheesy doughy inside and taste like they a 1,000 calories, but you don't need to dip them in olive oil so maybe it works out. I ate them as an accompaniment to the broccoli so you didn't need the cheese sauce. Yum

Definitely heat up as directed. The bread was delicious! It was just the right consistency.

Not the best I have had, but good. I did not heat them thoroughly enough which might have helped.

It was ok. Not bad, not amazing, almost good. If it came with the meal, I'd gladly eat them, but I probably wouldn't pay for them again.
