Brazilian Bread Balls

Heat the following ingredients in a small saucepan until white foam appears.
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1/3 c. water
1/3 c. milk
1 tsp. salt

Immediately add this to:

2 c. tapioca starch

Stir with a wooden/heavy spoon or spatula. Let rest about 15 minutes. (Sometimes I shorten this to 5 min.)

Mix in:

2 eggs
1 c. grated hard cheese (such a Parmesan, but I have also used cheddar)

You will have a sticky gooey mass.

Drop by spoonfuls onto a lightly greased cookie sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until top begins to brown. I bake them about 20-25 min. on stoneware. You can vary the cooking length to make them crispier (more time) or softer (less time).
