I am a huge popcorn addict, I can literally eat about five microwave bags in one night. But stovetop popcorn is the best! It's healthier, cheaper, and you get to decide how much to make. There is nothing else like it. And my boyfriend is a cheese addict, so this idea seemed to be perfect. It kicked the popcorn up a notch, and was super delicious! Best part, it is pretty healthy overall.
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1 cup popcorn kernels
2 tbsp butter flavored salt
1 cup grated parmesan cheese
Put the oil, kernels and salt in a pan (one you don't mind ruining...) and put the heat on high. Make sure you shake and swirl the pan often, especially once the kernels start popping. Once the kernels slow down and you count 3-4 seconds between pops, turn the heat off. Wait until you don't hear any more popping, and pour into a large bowl. Coat with 1/2 cup of the cheese, and proceed to inhale it. Once you get about halfway through, add more cheese and shake to cover. The picture is what was left after 20 minutes of devouring, I wanted a picture for this blog before we demolished the rest! A great movie night snack. I imagine other types of grated cheese would also be delicious, and I have heard that adding spices like garlic or cayenne is tasty too.
