Nduja Cheese Breads with Whipped Goat Cheese

Prep Time:20 Minutes
Cook Time:20 Minutes

Nutritional Information

Loosely based on the Brazilian Pao de Queijo. These biscuits use tapioca flour and are gluten free.


  • For the Cheese Breads:
  • 1.77 cups tapioca flour
  • 0.7 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3.6 tablespoons whole milk
  • 3.6 tablespoons water
  • 3.6 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2.7 eggs
  • 1.3 ounces nduja sausage
  • 7.1 tablespoons (2 ounces) grated white cheddar
  • 7.1 tablespoons (2 ounces) grated Parmesan
  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • For the Whipped Goat Cheese:
  • 3.6 ounces room-temperature goat cheese
  • 1.8 tablespoons olive oil
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Thinly sliced basil, for garnish


  • 1. In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, combine the tapioca flour with the salt.
  • 2. In a small saucepan, bring the milk, water and oil to a simmer over medium-high heat. Remove from the heat and, with the motor running on low, slowly pour it over the flour. Mix until combined and the mixture has cooled slightly, then add the eggs, one at a time, making sure each is combined before adding the next.
  • 3. Add the nduja and the cheeses, and mix until incorporated, then cover the bowl in plastic wrap and chill for 1 hour.
  • 4. Preheat the Egg to 350° with platesetter for indirect heat, and grease a mini-muffin tray. Working in batches, scoop 1 tablespoon of batter into each muffin tin. Bake until golden brown and puffed, 15 to 20 minutes.
  • 5. While the breads bake, make the whipped goat cheese: In a mini food processor, combine all the ingredients, except for the basil, and purée until smooth. Transfer to a small bowl and garnish with the basil.
  • 6. Transfer the cheese breads to a tray and serve warm alongside the whipped goat cheese.
