Brazilian Cheese Buns

I have made several versions of Brazilian Cheese Buns. They are perfect for gluten free cooking.

Each recipe that I have made has been a little different.

Some are a little more roll like. One version I made was even more popover like. Some versions call for parmesan cheese, others use cheddar, and some even use a white cheese.

I think this version today is my favorite so far. It is the simplest of the recipes that I have tried. So many gluten free recipes take extra time, so it is nice to have something that I can make when I am in a hurry.

These work perfectly with pasta or other main dishes, but we have used them for hamburger buns and sandwiches.



This recipe came from a cookbook that I found at the library. I copied the recipe, but forgot to write down the name of the cookbook or I would give credit to where it came from.

  1. We love Brazilian Cheese Buns at our house too. They are fairly easy to make and very yummy.

  2. Those cheese buns look great! It’s such a simple recipe, too. Thanks for the idea – I’ll have to try it!

  3. You’re right, there are a lot of slightly different versions of these. I miss them since going dairy free. They just won’t be the same without cheese. Thanks for participating in the carnival.

  4. These were yummy and easy! The best part was I had all the ingredients handy. They make a perfect pairing with gf beer for an after dinner treat. We will be making these alot in the future!

    • I am so glad that you liked them. Thanks for letting me know. They are one of my favorite gf rolls/bread to make. I agree they are easy and very good.

  5. My daughter-in-law cannot eat gluten, and I’d like to make these for her on Thanksgiving. I wondered how far in advance I can make them, and how well they store. Thanks for posting this recipe!

    • This can be made ahead and either eaten or reheated. We have used the leftover ones the next day for lunch or sandwiches. However, I will say that they are best when eaten fresh warm out of the oven. But if you are trying to make these on Thanksgiving in the middle of cooking everything else, I would suggest making them a few hours ahead. You could make them in the morning or a few hours before serving the meal and I think that would work. I hope you enjoy!

      • Thank you very much! Is is so tricky to time everything to be cooked and ready at the same time. I think I will make just half a batch, since she is the only one who needs them. I bet they make really good sandwiches. I’m excited for her to try these! Happy Thanksgiving to you!

  6. Hi Lynn: I wondered if this can be made with all-purpose flour of whole wheat flour because I went to the grocery stores and couldn’t find it. Let me know. I want to make them today!! Thank you!

    • I think these need the tapioca flour to get the right texture. You can usually find it in the health food aisle or gluten , with the gluten free or health food type flours. I have also found it in the asian section or at an asian type food store since it is used in many of their recipes. I hope that helps.

      • Authentic Foods Tapioca Floor is excellent. They have a recipe of the Brazilian Cheese Bread on the package. Happy Baking! :-)

    I have never heard of Tapioca flour. Can you find it at a regular supermarket? I live in a foreign country, so can’t always get some ingredients. Is it possible to use white flour or something else for this recipe? The Brazilian Cheese Buns look great! I want to try them!

    • Florina Burns says:

      oops, sorry! Just saw that you have answered the same question about using white flour. I’m very sorry. No need to respond to my question. :)

  8. I was wondering what the caloric totals were for this? Like fat content, etc. Great recipe though, thanks!

  9. Have you ever tried to freeze them? I love to use these as hamburger buns. Thanks for the great recipe!

  10. Can it be made without the cheese? I am allergic to dairy. Thank you and thank you for sharing such simple recipe.
