DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Grease (or spray) the bottoms of 24 (or 48) mini-muffin cups.
  • Blend milk, oil and eggs, then add tapioca starch and finally, cheese. The result must be something very liquid.
  • Pour the mixture in the muffins cups, filling about 2/3 of each one.
  • Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
  • Bake at 350°F until done or golden brow, about 18 minutes. They should double the size (most of that is air inside the bread).
  • Serve warm.
  • Tip: if you don’t worry with calories, you can serve with cream-cheese and butter. We can even add small pieces of bacon before bake.
  • Note: if you don't have Parmesan, you can use any other hard cheese, like asiago or provolone.
