A Take on Olga's Snackers

  • Print

 

Probably the most delicious appetizers/sides in existence are Olga's Snackers. Those outside of the state of Michigan/Midwest have probably never take part in the delights of Olga's Kitchen, but trust me, you'd be hard-pressed to find something yummier than Olga Bread and Olga's Snackers - seasoned Olga Bread cut up into chip-sized nuggets of love.

I've already written about my culinary devotion to Naan Bread, that versatile and delicious Indian flatbread. Typically I use it as the base for pizza, but lately I have been experimenting with what else can be done with it. The last couple of nights, I've found that I can replicate the salty-seasoned taste of Snackers using Naan bread. Cue the angels!

Here's how you, too, can get a little taste of Olga's if you can't get to a restaurant. And if you've never tasted Olga Bread before, here's a link to Olga's Kitchen's Online Store, where you can order cases of Olga Bread.
 

Ingredients

  • Naan Bread (I like the Original Tandoori Naan from Stonefire)
  • Olive Oil
  • Garlic Salt
  • Italian Seasoning or Paprika

 

Directions

  1. Set oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Place Naan bread on baking sheet and brush with olive oil until evenly coated.
  3. Add generous sprinkles of garlic salt and other seasoning - Olga's Kitchen uses paprika, but I didn't have any at home. Instead I used Italian Seasoning for added flavor.
  4. Bake for about 10-11 minutes until crispy on the edges but softer in the middle.
  5. Enjoy as a side with salad, with a Swiss almond cheese dip a la Olga's or marinara sauce.

 

I've been making mine as a side with salad, so I prefer the longer, breadstick-like pieces. If you want them to be even more like Olga's Snackers, do your prep on a cutting board and use a pizza cutter to cut your seasoned Naan into triangle pieces. Then put the pieces on the baking sheet - that will ensure the edges of the little Snackers will get crispy.

Though nothing could replace the original Olga's Snackers, this is a fun experiment to try at home until you have the opportunity to get the real thing at Olga's Kitchen.
