Brazil 2014: Pass and Score with Bite-Sized Appetizers

Yum

With the World Cup Knockout Rounds in full swing, we went looking for tasty recipes that bring elements of the games into our living rooms. We were delighted to find these two for appetizers that resemble mini soccer balls. Pass them around the room and everyone will be scoring goals in their mouths!

Maura Hernandez of The Other Side of the Tortilla first tasted Brazilian Cheese Rolls over a decade ago, but she just recently perfected her recipe for the World Cup. She created Gluten-Free Brazilian Cheese Rolls with Cotija as the perfect accompaniment to your viewing party menu. Although the Cotija Cheese makes it savory, it can also be enjoyed with a variety of sweet spreads like fruit jams, chocolate hazelnut, or dulce de leche.

If you thought to yourself, “Gee, those Brazilian Cheese Rolls with Cotija look delicious but I’m really craving something with mashed potatoes” then look no further. Pilar Hernandez from En Mi Cocina Hoy created this mouth-watering recipe for Stuffed Mashed Potato Balls with Queso Quesadilla. Nothing beats the surprised look on your guests’ faces when they take their first bite to discover the creamy deliciousness of Queso Quesadilla.
