white truffle oil
grated Parmesan cheese
1 (3.5 ounce) package
microwave popcorn, popped
sea salt, or to taste
OMG! We call this "crack corn"...its addicting!
My mixture wouldn't stick to the popcorn. No matter how much mixing/shaking I did, the mixture just sat on the bottom, with the plain, tasteless popcorn on top of it (I picked plain popcorn so it wouldn't be too salty).
I'm always looking for ways to use the truffle oil I have on hand as it's not something I commonly or routinely use. I love the stuff but you can just do so much drizzling. This caught my eye. Like popcorn with bacon grease, this is unusual, very tasty and decadent; and in this case, rather gourmet. But also like popcorn with bacon grease (or cinnamon sugar) it was a nice diversion but not a worthy replacement for the traditional hot buttered popcorn. I just sprinkled and tossed as it suited me, not measuring precisely, and skipping the dried parsley. I also used a fine popcorn salt, very sparingly, as the Parmesan is already fairly salty.
I tried this over Orville Redenbacher's Natural Buttery Salt & Cracked Pepper popcorn, and it was sublime!! You've really got to like truffle oil for this one; this is a beautiful way to showcase that earthy flavor!
Mine came out a bit salty, but still tasty. Will make again with less salt.
This recipe is similar to the popcorn that was served at Graham Elliot's restaurant in Chicago. Be sure to use white (not black) truffle oil and a good quality parmesan. Grate it over the popcorn and get ready for "mmmm". . .
The truffle oil/parmesan/parsley mixture clumped together and certainly would not coat the popcorn in any kind of reasonable way.
