1 (1 ounce) packet
Hidden Valley® Original Ranch® Salad Dressing & Seasoning Mix
1 (3 ounce) bag
reduced-fat, butter-flavored microwave popcorn
grated Parmesan cheese
this is the same version of popcorn a friend of mine makes but with out the butter. Pop fresh or bagged popcorn and toss with dried ranch dressing and parmesan. Voola!
This is better if you use air popped popcorn. Also, cut back and use half
a packet of ranch dressing and use pepper to season, too.
Although we love ranch and popcorn, this recipe really did not work for us even though we followed the directions exactly. It was really odd tasting. Two stars for the idea though! I think I will make something like this again, just skip the butter, maybe a teaspoon of ranch seasoning premixed with the parmesan and tossed on the popcorn. We make parmesan popcorn all the time and I bet this would work better than dousing it with the butter and getting soggy spots.
I love low-fat popcorn and am always looking for ways to snazz it up when I am dieting. Thanks for the recipe!
Yum! Kids loved this one. Didn't change a thing and it turned out great. Will be making again for movie night tonight!!
This recipe didn't work for me. I was careful to get exactly the ranch mix specified, but it clumped instead of mixing with the butter. My husband wound up picking big chunks of ranch gunk out of his popcorn as he was eating it. Fortunately, the popcorn was still okay even though it really didn't get the ranch flavor. It was just buttered parmesan popcorn. I may try this again, but I'll either omit the butter or pour it over the popcorn separately from the other toppings.
hi its fine.............
I whipped this up in no time for our family movie night (Willy Wonka & The Chocolate Factory). Everyone loved it and it was a nice change from the norm. I did cut down on the butter (2 TBS)and it was fine. I did have a little bit of a problem with the butter/salt mixture sticking to certain pieces so maybe next time I'll have my husband stir while I pour to try to avoid that.
