Forno's Pão de Queijo—or cheese roll in Portuguese—is an easily prepared, adaptable offering that serves as a snack, a breakfast item, a side dish and even a dessert pairing.

In addition, Forno's Pão de Queijo is a favorite of health-conscious eaters, as the cheese rolls are all-natural, gluten-free, allergen-friendly and yeast-free. They're fully baked, frozen and conveniently only take just a few minutes to bake up crispy on the outside, and soft and chewy on the inside.

In fact, because they're frozen you can store them in your freezer and get a fresh, chewy bun to eat on its own or for reinventing standard recipes.
