Simplest Italian Snack Ever

This, the most simple of all healthy Italian snacks, is great for a midnight snack, after school, or any time at all! In fact, down through the years it has been a standard go-to for moms preparing the after school snack. Especially before the advent of unhealthy junk food!

Using just three ingredients, this simple snack is as inexpensive as it is healthy. And it also makes a great addition to any meal!

Great on fresh Italian bread, or try toasting the bread first!


  • 8 slices Italian-style bread
  • 4 teaspoons olive oil, extra virgin
  • Oregano to taste (optional)


  1. If desired, toast bread lightly.
  2. Drizzle with olive oil.
  3. Sprinkle crushed oregano over the slices.
  4. Serve immediately.

Make it extra special, by taking one half of a fresh tomato and squeezing a bit of the tomato juice over the bread. Making sure, of course, to set the tomato to the side for cooking supper!

Buon appetito! Enjoy!

  1. Your olive oil and oregano flavoring for bread gave me an idea, Sheila. I wonder what Italian popcorn would taste like?! (Popcorn is MY go-to snack. Hot-air popped, of course. Scant butter, no salt. High blood pressure runs in the family and finally caught up with me! Add smiley face here!)

    1. Well, we have it all the time, Nancy – and it’s delicious!! We do it in olive oil with a little salt. Or sometimes we omit the salt and sprinkle Parmigiano cheese on top. Yum… I think maybe that’s what we’ll have for dinner tonight!! A big bowl with an apple. Healthy and yummy!
