Spring-loaded bread gives breakfastbounce

Grate: Break cheese into 3 or 4 chunks. Drop into the food processor and buzz to bits.

Mix:
Add yuca flour, cornmeal, sugar and salt. Buzz to mix. Add egg. Process a full 2 minutes; dough will form a ball — just keep going. Dough will be very soft. Let rest 10 minutes.

Roll:
Divide dough and roll into 20 balls. Set 10 balls on each of two lightly oiled baking sheets. Press each ball gently into the pan, forming a dome shape.

Bake:
Slide pans into a 400-degree oven and bake until puffed, golden and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Breads should still be soft on top (even a bit bouncy) when pressed. Enjoy hot with coffee or hot chocolate.
