Brazi Bites

I first tried Brazi Bites at the Gluten-Free Living Conference in Orlando two years ago.  I liked them so much, after the conference, I headed to the Whole Foods on Turkey Lake Road to purchase several bags of Brazi Bites original Brazilian cheese bread.

Brazi Bites are based on a family recipe for Pao de Queijo, which means cheese bread in Portuguese.  They are gluten free, soy free, sugar free, non-GMO, and have no preservatives.  Brazi Bites, which were recently featured on ABC's Shark Tank, come in four flavors - original, garlic asiago, bacon, and jalapeno pepper jack.  All Brazi Bites are manufactured in a dedicated gluten-free facility.

I love the original Brazilian cheese bread, but my new favorite is the garlic asiago, which was a big hit with my whole family.  They contain tapioca flour, eggs, asiago cheese (cultured milk, enzymes, salt), milk, high-oleic safflower oil, filtered water, salt, garlic, and parsley.

I put my frozen Brazi Bites on a parchment lined baking sheet, and baked them from frozen for 20 minutes in a 400 degree oven.

They were perfect for a quick and easy Sunday lunch.  We made little sliders with them using slices of Boar's Head Bianco D'Oro Italian Dry Salame.

I could make Brazilian cheese bread from scratch, but it is so much easier to take a bag of Brazi Bites out of the freezer.

Locally, Brazi Bites can be purchased at Whole Foods and Chamberlin's in the freezer section.  You can view their store locator here.

What are your favorite flavors of Brazi Bites?

Brazi Bites sent me a complimentary bag of their garlic asiago Brazilian cheese bread, but the opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.  You can read my previous review of Brazi Bites here.
