    My friend and her husband enjoyed it. We had the same bread at a Brazilian steakhouse in Las Vegas. This brought back many memories.

    Had these at a food fair and thought I could do those and, hey presto, I have now. I can't express how incredible they are. If you are having doubts about trying this, don't, as they really are good. My only advice is not to use an ice cream scoop unless you want them like tennis balls...not that I'm complaining. Just makes the recipe go a bit further and more snack size if you use half the size of an ice cream scoop. Right, lecture over, off to eat some of these beauties! yummy!!!

    A bit too cheesy for me. I only use a cup of cheese and yet it was too much. However the texture was identical to the ones I used to buy in bakeries. The breads expand perfectly--they didn't burst, leaving a hole in the middle of the bread. I roll some of the dough into thin rolls and bake them to make some cheese sticks. Definitely going to make it again.

    I first had these at a Brazilian restaurant and fell in love. So I had to figure out how to make my own! I'm in love and happy to know I can whip these up and have them any time I want!😀
