Flatbread Snackers



As I posted yesterday, I was so excited to find a recipe that was similar to our favorite Olga's snackers!  We tried to make them two ways...baked and fried.  Baked, while healthier, didn't have the same familiar texture as I remember.  Which is really too bad; I was so hoping to make them more heart healthy!  The key ingredient, though is this magic blend:


Based on comments I've read online, this is the actual seasoning used in the restaurant.  I'm not sure if that's 100% true or not, but it definitely tasted like a Snacker to me!  I found this at Safeway in the spice aisle.

To make the snackers, first make the bread.  You can find the recipe on my previous post here.  Next, all you need to do is heat some canola or olive oil over medium to medium high heat in a skillet; toss in your cut up flatbread; stir and cook for a few minutes until the bread is warm and just a tad toasty on the outside; and finally remove from the oil, drain, and sprinkle liberally with the seasoning.  Voila!  Snackers!!  In the restaurant this is served with a Swiss almond cheese spread.  We never cared for it, so I haven't tried to replicate that.  But I hear that Kaukauna cheese makes a very, very similar blend.  Look for it in a cup with the cheese spreads at your grocery store.

I love things that are so simple, tasty, and remind me of home.  Hope you all get a chance to try this.  Let me know what you think...is it like the snackers that you remember?

I am SO excited about this recipe! I am going to have to attempt the cheese to go with it though, that is one of our favorite parts:) Love that you figured out the seasoning and that it is premixed!

I made this recipe tonight and it is nothing like Olga Snackers. Perhaps you could share which kind of flatbread you used? I used Flat Out and the chips are fine, but taste nothing like Olga bread, which is slightly sweet and much thicker. The seasoning works and would taste better if the bread was slightly sweeter. The Kaukauna cheese is also close, but not as sweet as the Olga cheese.

BadhamFamily,

It sounds like your family likes snackers as much as ours! The flatbread is posted on this site a day previous to the snackers recipe. You can find it here: http://www.faithfamilyandfrenchfries.blogspot.com/2011/12/olgas-kitchen-flatbread.html

I agree, the Olga bread is a little sweeter than an ordinary flatbread. Give this a try and tell me what you think! Hope that helps!
