Pan de queso (English: Cheese bread) is a traditional Colombian bread or roll made with tapioca flour and grated cheese.[1] It is served plain or filled with cream cheese or jelly.[2] This food is especially common in the Paisa region of Colombia as breakfast or parva.[3]

Pan de queso is one of the breads (along with pandebono and buñuelos) that is made with fermented cassava starch. Fermented starch allows biscuits to become light and voluminous.[4]

A similar food is prepared in Brazil, known as pão de queijo.[2] Pão de queijo is common in the southeast of Brazil, especially the Minas Gerais region.[5]
