Anyway, it is so easy to make. First, you need to pop some corn. My favorite method is using a brown paper bag and kernels of popcorn. Pour about 2-3 tablespoons of popcorn in the bag. Roll the top down about 3 turns.
Place the bag of corn in the microwave and hit your "Popcorn" setting. When it has about 20 seconds left and the popping starts slowing down, hit STOP. **Make sure you are paying attention to the timer! Don't be like me. I almost always burn the first batch.
I usually have some unpopped kernels, but I prefer that to burnt popcorn any day. To get 10-12 cups, you'll need to repeat this process about 4 times. The result is fluffy, non-greasy popcorn ready to be seasoned however you like it best. Yes, it takes a bit longer than the microwave stuff you buy at the store, but it is so much better for you and totally worth the extra time.
Sometimes we go the traditional route with butter and salt...sometimes adding a little Mrs. Dash Table Blend. But this time I went crazy. After I melted a couple of tablespoons of butter and poured over the popcorn, I added in about 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese, some garlic salt and pepper.
Yummy doesn't even begin to describe this. My daughter and I thoroughly enjoyed every last piece of this.
