Hey, not many of us can actually make it to the Olympics (either as a world-renowned athlete or otherwise), but we can sure eat like we’re there. In honor of the upcoming opening ceremonies and all of the games to follow, take a culinary trip to Rio by cooking up some Brazilian mainstays right at home.
Sold at bakeries across Brazil, Pao de Queijo have the consistency of cheesy dough balls, and they’re a staple in Brazil. With a name that translates as “cheese bread,” these gluten-free morsels are eaten as part of a traditional breakfast or as a snack. Eat them by themselves or split them open and use them like buns for your favorite slider fixings.
