Ingredient notes

Wheat flour – Use ordinary wheat flour.

Blue poppy seeds – Blue poppy seeds are delicious on top. You can also use oregano, sesame, Parmesan cheese, or other sprinkles on top of the breadsticks.

Olives and dried chili – I use olives and dried chili to make eyes and tongue for the snakes, but of course, you can use other things if you think it’s easier. See what you have in the drawers that can be used.

How to make snake bread?

It’s super cool to make your own breadsticks shaped like snakes for the Halloween soup, or when you just want to make the food a little extra fun for the kids.

First, the dough must be made. The yeast dissolves in water, and then the rest of the ingredients are added. I knead the dough on a mixer, and then it should raise 30 minutes.

After half an hour, divide the dough into 20 pieces, and then the dough pieces should be wheeled into long sausages and wrapped around a wooden skewer. The Head and tail are shaped and the olive eyes are put on.

The breadsticks are brushed with water and sprinkled with poppy seeds before baking in the oven.

When the breadsticks are finished, stick a small hole in the head where a small piece of dried chili is put, which is cut into like a tongue. After that, the sticks are ready to serve with your soup.

Frequently asked questions

How to store the bread snakes?

The finished hoses can be stored in a plastic bag or airtight container until serving.

Can I make the snakes well in advance?

Yes, you can easily make the snake bread the day before or two days before they are to be eaten. These are breadsticks that need to be dry, so nothing happens by having them lying in an airtight container for a day or two.

Can I use anything other than blue poppy seeds?

Yes, you can sprinkle the snakes with anything. You can also choose something that has more flavor for example grated Parmesan or oregano.

  • Divide the dough into 20 equal pieces. Roll each piece of dough into a long sausage about 1 cm thick. Now the dough must be shaped like a snake, this is done by wrapping it around a wooden skewer. The head is pressed a little flat and the tail is made a little pointed.
