Thoughts Before Cooking:

So I was thinking what goes best with a mystery book turned into a film? POPCORN!

So I have an air popper, and got this recipe from the instruction manuel by Bella.

As you know my love of pesto, I just couldn’t resist making this.

Italian Flavor Fused Popcorn

Thoughts prior to cooking:

Now this is my own recipe I created one day when I was trying to add flavor to my air popped popcorn. It isn’t an exact recipe, as it is done more by feel than actually sizing them out.

Ingredients:

  • Air Popper
  • Popcorn Kernels
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese (fresh not powdered)
  • Butter
  • Italian Seasoning
  • Dried Oregano

The first thing to do is to take as much butter you would wish on your popcorn and  melt it in the microwave. Leave it in so it cools a bit but not too much.

As your butter is in the microwave, prepare the popcorn according to your popper’s instructions.

When the popcorn is finished, toss the butter on top. Add a bit of Italian seasoning, oregano, and cheese. Mix it all up and add more cheese or seasoning, until it is flavored how you like it.

Thoughts after cooking:

Well I made it so I loved it! I thought it was a nice change from just buttered popcorn. And it tastes better than those flavorers that you buy at the store.
