What A Cheese Ball

Last weekend during hurricane Irene I stopped by my dad’s for lunch. I know what you’re thinking; don’t normal people stay at home during a hurricane? The answer to that is yes, but for my family high winds and torrential downpours are a mere obstacle.

At lunch we somehow started talking about bread. Our guests from Brazil immediately suggested that we make some traditional Brazilian cheese ball bread, a staple in most of their family meals. It sounded like it was going to take hours to make, but it only took about an hour and a half, after all where did we have to go on a blustery day?

The recipe made about 52 balls and we ate them all. They were delicious.

I bet they would be yummy with the beautiful figs that are out this time of year.

Here's the how to:
1. In a saucepan bring to a boil the below ingredients:
1 Cup of oil
1 Cup of milk
1 Cup of water

2. Place  4 cups of Yoki In a separate bowl

3. When the oil milk and water have come to a boil place that  mixture into the bowl that has the 4 cups of Yoki

4.  Let the everything slightly cool and add 7 eggs

5. Add 6 oz. of Parmesan cheese 

6. Fold all the ingredients into each other

7. Make the mixture into balls (about 56  2" balls) put some oil on your hands so that it is easier to shape the balls

8. Bake the balls for at 350 for apx. 1/2 hour or when balls are golden brown
