Spice things up a bit with this homemade stovetop black pepper parmesan popcorn. It only requires a few ingredients and less than 10 minute to make!!
Yield: 6-8 servings
  • 3 tbsp. vegetable, canola or coconut oil
  • ½ c. popcorn kernels
  • For the topping:
  • 3 tbsp. butter, melted
  • ¼ tsp. garlic powder
  • ¼ tsp. salt (optional*)
  • ½ tsp. black pepper
  • ¼ c. parmesan cheese
  1. Set a large Dutch-oven or large pot over medium-high heat, add the oil. Place 3 popcorn kernels in the oil. When the first kernel pops, add the remaining kernels and cover. Remove from the heat for 15-20 seconds, then return to the heat and shake every 1-2 minutes. After about 3-4 minutes all of the kernels should pop. Remove the lid and pour the popcorn into a large bowl.
  2. In a small mixing bowl, combine the melted butter, garlic, salt, and pepper. Drizzle over the popcorn and stir to combine. Sprinkle in the parmesan cheese, tossing as you go. Enjoy immediately.
*Depending on how salty your parmesan is, you may not need to add any salt.
