  • Cook's Notes:
  • If you would like to use microwave popcorn I would suggest a light butter brand, and adjust the seasonings to your taste.
  • Try Smart Balance® spray instead of butter for a lighter version.

Instead of garlic salt, I used garlic powder and a light dusting of salt. I also used parsley and omitted the rosemary, as it was optional. Delicious!

Not only does it taste nothing like garlic bread, the parmesan provides a nasty grit to the popcorn overall. Never again.

Recipe Group: I made this two ways. I made 2 batches of popcorn, and on the first one followed the recipe exactly. The second batch, I tailored to my own liking. I thought the first batch was fine, but it was lacking something. On my second batch, I subbed half of the garlic salt for garlic powder. That made the garlic REALLY pop! I left out the rosemary. I popped both batches of popcorn in sunflower oil and drizzled with a tiny bit of olive oil before tossing with the seasonings. I think this is a fun, new way to eat popcorn, I just had to tweak it a little!

Recipe Group: I will smell like garlic for days! So good! Popcorn is my favorite snack, and honestly I looked at all that popcorn and then at the 3 Tablespoons of butter and didn't think it would be enough...I was pleasantly surprised, however! Used garlic powder and table salt, and minced fresh rosemary. I had Romano cheese shreds and didn't think they would stick...again, pleasantly surprised. Couldn't keep my hands out of the bowl. Thanks for a great change of pace from Kernel Seasons white cheddar dust!

This was good! You really can't go wrong w/popcorn, butter, cheese, and garlic! My only caveat is that it tends toward the salty with all of those wonderful ingredients. I'd go easy w/the garlic salt, or even cut it w/some garlic powder. THANKS for the recipe!

Recipe Group Selection: 09, August 2014 ~ I'm a few weeks late in making the selection, but glad I did make it. I cooked the popcorn using the 'Gourmet Microwave Popcorn' method from AR. I made as written and liked it, but next time I will use a little less garlic salt. The fresh Parmesan cheese add extra salt and provided a delightful taste to the popcorn.

Wonderful snack! I will make this again and again for game day. Love the combo of flavors in this.
