This baked "cheese" bread tastes just like the Brazilian original (and is just addictive) even though it's made without any cheese or cheese alternative. Enjoy warm as a starter, side or snack with coffee, beer or wine.
Formed into small balls, the cheese bread also freezes well.
Cook or steam potatoes for about 20-30 minutes or until soft.

Knead dough well with your hands and form into small golf ball-sized balls.

Once done, take out of the oven and let cool slightly before serving. Enjoy warm.
