White Truffle Popcorn With Parmesan And Romano Cheese

by jerseygirl on April 2, 2011 · 14 comments

It’s the weekend so it’s movie watching time. Since I’m in that “it’s almost bathing suit season” mode, I want healthy and light snacks. Popcorn is a great choice since it’s low in calories and has lots of fiber. As long as it’s not dripping with butter, you can get away with eating several cups. But plain popcorn is boring. So I added some white truffle oil along with some Parmesan and Romano cheese. I bought this gorgeous bottle of white truffle oil and now I am on a white truffle kick.

Truffle oil is very expensive as this little bottle cost me $17. But it goes a very long way. Only a few drops on a salad, popcorn, pasta or pizza and you really get the aroma and earthy taste of truffles. Normally I grate my own cheese but this time I used the grated kind as it was all that I have. Besides I didn’t want my popcorn too uppity since I was already using the high- falutin oil.

This popcorn is so good you’ll want to sneak it into a big gym bag the next time you go to the movies. I am not even going to give you a recipe since I don’t know how cheesy you like your popcorn. Just sprinkle some plain hot popcorn with Parmesan and Romano cheese. You can use one instead of both also. Then slowly drizzle a few drops of the oil on your popcorn. Salt it to your liking and mix well. Believe me when I say, it is addicting!

when you posted about this oil it reminded me that I have truffle salt that I brought home from Napa in the fall! It's so good! Next time I make popcorn will add it to it…and will look for this oil. What a treat! 🙂

I need to buy truffle oil so I can do this at home. We always order it when we go out.

I've always wanted to try truffle oil, but haven't been brave enough to spend that much on something I've never tried. I'd bet your popcorn is amazing!

I recently found white truffle oil less expensive at the grocery store (they sell the same brand at Whole Foods), packaged in a screw-top can to keep out light. It's based in sunflower oil rather than the usual olive oil. Man! Is it potent! And addictive! I love it on mushroom and pasta dishes. And I'm definitely going to try it on popcorn now!

P.S. – I just made a big bowl of this and it was AWESOME! We loved every molecule and will be doing this a lot, I think, from now on. Serious yum factor!

Popcorn is my favorite food, to the point that it's featured in my last meal. Love the addition of truffle oil.

Where did you buy the truffle oil? I don't think my local stores carry it… and I'd love to give this a try!
