5-ingredient, gluten-free Brazilian Hot Pockets filled with bacon and cheddar cheese that are super easy to prepare. They make a great breakfast or snack!
Love Pão de Queijo (Brazilian cheese rolls)? Well, me too! After becoming a fan of the traditional recipe and its variations, including pão de queijo waffles, I decided to innovate once more by using the same dough to make what I call Bacon and Cheese Brazilian Hot Pockets (Enroladinho de Pão de Queijo). Yep! This thing is addictive… much to my despair!
I ain’t kidding folks! Only five ingredients were used to prepare this recipe. Three for the dough — sour cream, tapioca flour, and grated Parmesan cheese. And of course, two for the filling: bacon and cheddar cheese. That’s all!
Because they are made from tapioca flour, these Brazilian hot pockets are naturally gluten-free — in contrast to the ones available at the supermarket.
They are also quite simple to prepare– pretty much only requiring to mix the dough, fill with bacon and cheese, and then bake. It actually took more time to bake than to actually prepare these Brazilian hot pockets. And yes, they can be frozen. Now that’s my kind of recipe!
Looking for something new to serve for breakfast or for a hearty snack? These Brazilian hot pockets will be a huge hit! And yes, they make a great lunch or dinner too.
If you would like to, you can also use different fillings such as mozzarella and pepperoni, or sausage and cheddar. Presto! New hot pockets to delight the family.
Needless to say, my hubby and kids made short work of the whole batch! 😉
Coffee, soda, juice, beer… they all go well with our easy and delish Brazilian pocket sandwiches. Baby carrots and celery sticks make excellent accompaniments, too.
I will be awaiting your feedback! 🙂
