A few months ago our family made stovetop popcorn for the first time. Our toddler’s eyes lit up as each kernel popped. Needless to say, we’ve been doing popcorn each and every Sunday since! Usually we stick to the traditional butter & salt, but this time we shook things up a bit by adding a generous amount of black pepper and parmesan to the popcorn after it was popped.

Guys, it was soo good! It tasted really similar to the pre-popped bagged kind I really love. And it was super easy. BONUS!!

We gobbled down the entire bowl within a matter of minutes… which is probably a good thing, because this popcorn doesn’t last very long (with the fresh parmesan).
