Air Fryer Pao de Queijo

Two types of naturally gluten-free manioc starch (not tapioca) mixed with cheeses are a traditional recipe for Brazilian cheese rolls, but these are made in an air fryer instead of the oven. This cuts down baking time, and still gives you soft, chewy rolls. It is important to use both types of starches for the right flavor. They can be found in most Latin or South American grocery stores or even online.



Step: 1

Preheat an air fryer to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).

Step: 2

Mix sweet manioc and sour manioc starches together in a bowl until fully combined.

Step: 3

Combine milk, water, olive oil, and salt in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and add starches. Stir until liquid is absorbed; the mixture will be very dry. Remove from heat and allow mixture to cool just until safe to handle.

Step: 4

Add eggs to the starch mixture in the saucepan; mix until smooth and dough pulls away from the sides. Add Cheddar cheese and Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese; mix well.

Step: 5

Using gloved or lightly oiled hands, pinch off a golfball-sized piece of dough, roll into a ball, and place on a plate. Repeat with remaining dough. Line the air fryer with a piece of parchment paper. Place balls into the basket in batches, approximately 1 inch apart.

Step: 6

Bake in the air fryer until browned outside, 8 to 10 minutes. Repeat with remaining balls.
