The minute I popped one of these Brazi Bites into my mouth I was in heaven. If you have ever visited Texas De Brazil (or any Brazilian steakhouse I’m sure for that matter) you will instantly think of the little bread rolls they set out when you try these. & then as I read about the history of Brazi Bites, I realized these cheese bread snacks originated from a Brazilian cheese bread called Pao de Queijo. Ding ding ding, they must be the same thing (or very similar at least). Mike agreed.
These snacks have a crispy crust but a fluffy gooey center (thanks to one of my favorite things…cheese!). Mike and I have taste-tested all three and while we find the bacon flavor & jalapeno ones to taste just fine, we are partial to the original cheese ones. Maybe because of the whole Texas de Brazil similarity.
The website boasts that they are naturally gluten-free, made with 100% natural ingredients, and are ready to bake. Who doesn’t love all of that? We baked ours in the toaster oven for 16-20 minutes and they came out perfect, it is fun to see them start out as a small frozen ball and rise to a golden-brown roll. Mike and I have not dared share these with the kids yet (lol!) but I’m sure they would like them, probably the original cheese ones as well. My kids are big into “good bread” and I would surely describe these like that.
The only down fall for us Floridians? Currently, Brazi Bites are located in select stores through the west, mid-west, and south-west parts of the US. But, we could always order through our local grocer (according to their website).
If you are into quick & easy snacks that are also healthy these just might be for you!
