There are some things that you just can't keep to yourself. I have decided to share my popcorn recipe that we concocted the other night.
We prefer hot-air popcorn, but this works for popcorn in a kettle, too. If you're still using microwave popcorn, may God have mercy on your soul.
1 cube butter
1 Tbsp garlic SALT (not powder)
1 half cup shredded parmesan, mimolette, romano, or asiago
1 big bowl of popped popcorn
Grate your cheese of choice. Set it aside.
Pop the popcorn. Simple enough, right?
Pour popcorn into a bowl to about 2/3 to 3/4 capacity.
Mix butter and garlic salt with a fork. Or spoon. Or ... whatever. Just mix it. Melt butter over medium-low heat, preferably on a gas burner, but if not, over an electric burner. Let the butter froth and bubble. Once it starts doing that, it's ready to pour over the popcorn.
Drizzle the melted butter over the popcorn. Shake the bowl so the butter is distributed somewhat evenly throughout the popcorn.
Sprinkle the cheese over the popcorn. Shake the bowl in a similar manner to how you shook it for the butter.
Consume. Engorge. Enjoy.
This is best consumed while watching a good movie. Or a good TV series on DVD. Also, you might want to have a tall glass of milk standing by. It's VERY good with the popcorn.
There you go. You're welcome.
