Parmesan Truffle Popcorn

I love homemade popcorn. I believe that it is way better than microwave popcorn. 

It is easy too, just throw a few tablespoons of canola oil or peanut oil in the bottom of a Dutch oven. Add 1/2 cup of corn kernels. 
Turn heat on high. 
Give it a shake. 
As soon as you hear the first pop turn heard down to medium.  
When popping slows, turn off and remove from heat.

For tonights popcorn my husband requested parmesan truffle. 
truffle oil
fresh grated parmesan cheese
chili powder
sea salt (not pictured)

Give the popcorn a spray with canola oil as you toss it around to get most of the popcorn. This helps the toppings stick to the popcorn.
(You can also drizzle 2 tbsp of melted butter. I prefer the spray because it is less fatting.)

Add about a 1/2 cup of fresh grated parmesan cheese, a few shakes of pepper, a 1/2 tsp chili powder, and sea salt to taste. Toss all ingredients until popcorn seems evenly coated. Then drizzle a tablespoon of truffle oil and gently toss one more time. 


Do you have a favorite homemade popcorn recipe?
