This bread has an ingredient that isn't found in most grocery stores here in the USA. Yuca starch, yuca harina, or sometimes called tapioca starch, can be found at Latin markets (our local market is called Rancho Market). We like the Goya Brand tapioca starch. You can also get it on Amazon.
Click through the gallery below to see the process in action of making these. They are very easy to make. Usually he only uses one type of cheese but since he was making them for a large family this time, he had to use 4 different cheeses to have enough dough, and the results were very delicious and flavorful.
- This is easiest to make in a food processor. I love my KitchenAid food processor. If you don't have one or need a new one I reccommend it!
- If the dough feels too dry you can add some water, or my Brother-in-law adds some sour cream to the dough.
- If the dough seems too wet you can add more tapioca starch.
- Basically any cheese can be used, but most commonly used in the states, is mozzarella (and maybe some feta too). I think once he used some gruyere.
- The dough is best if it is chilled a bit before baking but it's not necessary if you don't have time/can't wait.
- Eat them ASAP (let them cool a little) because they are best warm.
I hope you get to try these and enjoy them. We'll probably post soon about the yogurt drink that goes with them so stay tuned!
