Move over boring buttered popcorn! This homemade seasoned popcorn is flavored with truffle oil and parmesan for a gourmet popcorn recipe that will elevate your movie snack ideas to the next level. You are going to love this parmesan popcorn.
It's almost the weekend so it's movie watching time. Since I am in "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.
Ingredients in this Homemade Seasoned Popcorn
Plain popcorn is boring. So I added some white truffle oil along with some Parmesan and Romano cheese to my popped pop corn. I bought this gorgeous bottle of white truffle oil and now I am on a white truffle kick.
Truffle oil is very expensive as a little bottle cost me $15. 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 had. And it needs just a touch of salt to bring out all the delicious flavors.
This parmesan 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 an amount to put on since I don't know how cheesy you like your popcorn. This is movie snack ideas to the max!
