Folar is a Potuguese bread traditionally served at the Christian holidays of Passover and Easter. The recipe varies from region to region and may be sweet or salty.

It is traditional to offer folar to godfathers and priests at Easter, in imitation of the distributuion of bread at the Last Supper. Folar is sometimes served with a boiled egg, that symbolically represents rebirth and the Resurrection.

Folar de Chaves, popular in the north-eastern Portuguese regions of Chaves and Valpaços, is stuffed with pork, ham, salpicão and linguiça.
