Quick breads are perfect for gift giving, especially when baked in a mini loaf pan – just wrap individually and top with a bow! For a gathering I sometimes like to bring a variety of breads, sliced and arranged on a platter and served with cream cheese for the spreading. Banana Bread is always a favorite!

Her mom cooks these every Christmas. She says it's always a treat to spend that extra time with her preparing each and every little fritter - she always said each one is special and different. This dish is so delicious and light and is served at all “Portuguese” special occasions whether it is a wedding or a first communion. If soaking a traditional salted cod isn’t your thing, you substitute fresh cod. We used our Portuguese Extra Virgin Olive Oil to fry these little gems - it stays true to the recipe’s ethnic roots!
And don’t worry about frying the Portuguese Cod Fried Balls in olive oil: the fry temperature of 375 is well below the smoke point.
