Gluten Free Bread Recipe: Brazilian Cheese Buns

½ cup unsalted butter*
¼ cup water
¼ cup milk
¾ tsp. salt or 1 tsp. real sea salt
2 cups gluten free tapioca flour
2 tsp. minced garlic
2/3 cup grated Parmesan, Romano or Asiago cheese
2 eggs, lightly beaten

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

In a medium saucepan, place the butter, water, milk and salt and heat to a full boil (bubbles that keep coming no matter how much you stir).

Have your 2 cups of tapioca flour in a large mixing at the ready. Pour the boiling mixture right over the top of the flour and start beating with an electric mixer. Beat on high until it becomes very smooth. This happens fast.

Then beat in the garlic and cheese. Now, check to see how hot the dough is. Stick your finger in there. If you can comfortable touch it without burning yourself (baby formula temp I call it) then you’re ready for the next step.

Keep your mixer going and slowly pour in the beaten eggs until everything is well combined.
Drop the mixture using a large cookie scoop (or make sure it’s golf ball size) and space them 1 ½” to 2” apart on the parchment.

Bake for 20 minutes, until they have freckles (the cheese browning here) and just turning brown. Take out of the oven and serve hot.

Makes 18 to 20 buns.

These reheat really well in your microwave. Just pop them in for 5 seconds at a time until hot.
