Last night I was watching a movie (it may or may not have been Legally Blonde, because girl power), and got in a real snacky mood. So I decided to throw together my favourite “fancy” popcorn. Yup, fancy popcorn. I love taking really simple things and putting my own twist on them. You would be surprised how much better something can get if you just add your own sparkle to it.
What’s in it:
- Parmesan cheese
- Garlic powder
- Mixed Italian herbs
Start by finely grating your parmesan cheese. This is all approximate so if you really like cheese grate lots, and if you don’t just do a little bit (but really, who doesn’t like cheese… that’s just not normal.) Now, pop your popcorn! Once the popcorn is ready to go, melt your butter. And for the love of god just use butter and not margarine, that stuff is nasty. Slowly pour the butter on top of the popcorn, shaking the bowl as you go to make sure it gets nice and even. Take your parmesan cheese and sprinkle it evenly over the popcorn. And finally, do the same with your garlic powder and mixed italian herbs.
So so yummy! This is such an easy way to “dress up” a really simple snack. This obviously isn’t the healthiest snack ever considering it is covered in butter and cheese, but like I always say life is about balance! If you want the cheesy popcorn, eat the cheesy popcorn! Just not every day lol.
