Introduction: Snakku

Snakku means Snack in Japanese

They are small, delicious, easy to make bite size treats and can be addictive after the first bite. It's hard not to eat it without stopping. Snakku is not a well known treat, but it is unique in taste and appearance.

My friend, Airi showed me when I was younger on how popular it was between her friends after they learned it from her teacher in one of her classes the previous day.

Step 1: Gather Materials

You will need:

  • Loaves of bread
  • Butter
  • Shredded cheese
  • Pan
  • Rolling pin
  • Spatula
  • Knife
  • Cutting board
  • Plate or platter

Step 2: Bread Prep!

Select as many loaves of bread as you would like (one piece of bread will make four treats)

Step 3: Rolling Pin

Flatten the bread with clean hands or use the rolling pin. The cutting board is also optional here to ensure a more sanitary environment for the flattened out bread slice. It is optional to take the crust away (if any) so that you will have a much smoother texture in the finishing process.






Step 4: Flatten Bread

Be sure to flatten the bread slice as much as possible. The flatter the bread is, the easier it will be to roll and much better when it comes time to cook. Here is an example of what it should like (if not thinner) when flattened.

Step 5: Cheese!

Put as much shredded cheese as you desire over the flatten bread . Shredded cheese will make it easier to roll the bread when it comes time to roll it up. Be sure to even out the amount of cheese you put on the slices individually so that it is not all clumped up together. The amount of cheese you put on is crucial because too much can cause the bread to break apart and too little wont be as satisfying.

Step 6: Roll

Roll the bread one end to the other with your fingers. Be sure to keep in all the cheese as you roll. Gently press evenly to keep in the cheese and to get a tight close on the roll. Slowly it will start to look like a sushi roll.

Step 7: Pan Prep!

With a spoon or a butter knife or any useful kitchen utensil scoop in enough butter to lightly fill the pan. The butter should slowly start to melt inside the pan depending on the temperature of the stove top. A medium temperature will be enough to simmer up the butter. Constantly make sure the butter does not dissolve completely.

Step 8: Cut!

As the butter melts, you will have to cut up individual pieces using the knife. Cut the bread about 1 inch or so apart from each other on the bread roll. Again, using the cutting board to ensure a sanitary environment.

Step 9: Place & Flip

Once ready, you will put the individual bread pieces in the pan. It will take a minute or so for the cheese to melt well.
You can fit up to eight pieces depending on the size of your pan.

You will need to wait around 15 seconds or so to flip. Flip each piece using the spatula so that it will be toasted on both sides

Step 10: The Small Delicious Treat (Snakku)

Once your Snakku is done, place it on a plate. Be cautious because it might be hot at first. After they are at a warm enough temperature go ahead and enjoy! They are delicious and the melted cheese should flow easily in your mouth in an almost cream-like feel.

Snakku can be eaten as an appetizer, side dish, or main course even. This easy simple snack is very satisfying and I recommend every cheese fanatic to try it!

There is an optional step which is to make a cream soup, or any kind of soup you may like.

Why not use tortillas? No flattening required.
