We’re all about convenience at Cheesebuddy. Healthy, wholesome snacks shouldn’t be hard to make.

So, when we heard that some of our customers were cooking up Cheesebuddy Brazilian cheese bread in air fryers, we had to try it.

We really thought preparing pão de queijo couldn’t be easier, but this ‘hack’ is blowing our minds.

Can you bake Brazilian cheese bread in an air fryer?

Now, we could have just searched “Brazilian cheese bread in air fryer” to see what the internet had to say.

But where’s the fun in that?

Instead, we grabbed our Cheesebuddy bites from the freezer and popped some in the air fryer basket.

After a little experimentation, we figured out that 175°C for 15 minutes is the best way to bake Brazilian cheese bread in the air fryer.

These settings give you puffy, airy, golden balls of deliciousness with just the right amount of crisp.
