Or maybe you’ve even made them yourself…
But, if you haven’t tried these rolls, don’t take my word for how delicious they are. Because, I’m sharing my Brazilian Cheese Bread recipe so you can make them today.
And, you can be rest assured they are 100% authentic, because I got the recipe from my Brazilian friend, Fernanda.

What is Brazilian cheese bread made of?
The ingredients in this Brazilian Cheese Bread recipe are quite simple.
