Pao de Queijo with Artichokes

Pao de Queijo, is an easy, gluten free, Brazilian Cheese Bread made with tapioca flour.  These rolls are chewy, delicious, and best ate warm out of the oven.  We added Cara Mia Marinated Artichokes for additional flavor.  Warning- highly addictive!

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Lightly grease a muffin or a mini muffin tin.

In a blender, combine the egg, oil, milk, flour, Cara Mia Marinated Artichoke Hearts and salt. Process until the mixture is smooth, scraping down the sides of the blender once or twice. Add the cheese and process for just a short bit, 5-10 seconds or a few short pulses, until the cheese is in small bits all throughout the batter.

Give the batter a good stir to get any solids off the bottom and pour the mixture into the prepared muffin tin filling the cups nearly to the top.

Bake the pao de queijo until very lightly golden brown, 15-20 minutes. Don't let them get too brown on the bottom or they will be too crusty and not as chewy.

Remove them from the oven and let them cool for just a minute or two.

The puffs might fall a bit in the middle, as they cool.

About Me

Cara Mia
Cara Mia brand was started by an artichoke grower co-op in 1955, in the “artichoke capital” of the world, Castroville, CA. The co-op opened as a freezer operator with the intent of providing consumers another means to enjoy the edible thistle all year around. The venture proved so successful that a marinating line was added in 1958. Soon sales of the marinated produce far surpassed the frozen line as consumers enjoyed the proprietary marinade that dressed the tender leaves. The Borges Group acquired Cara Mia and its proprietary spice mix/marinade recipe in 2001. Today Cara Mia is the #1 selling brand of marinated artichokes. Look for them, and the other Cara Mia marinated vegetable items, in the Produce Dept.
