Options Parmesan - An extra 1/4 or ½ cup of parmesan cheese can be added to the dough mixture or sprinkled on top for a more cheesy flavour.

Guava Paste - You can add a small piece of our Predilecta guava paste to the centre or the top of each ball (in dough form) before baking them in a mini-muffin tray for a taste sensation enjoyed throughout Brazil.

Extra Cheese - Put a piece of your favourite cheese in the middle of the cheese bread balls & bake in a mini-muffin tray for an awesome “cheesy” bite.

Oregano - can be also added to the dough mix for extra flavour.

Many other variations can be explored such as dipping sauces for the bread.

Best ever Pao de Queijo

Add some Garlic Powder and crispy Bacon as well as some grated Mozzarella. Roll into balls; any you may not want to eat then and there, freeze. Take frozen PdQ and place on baking tray and bake 30-35min on 230C. Yummy. Would be even better with some Requeijão :)
