Yummy Spicy Homemade Popcorn
1 cup of popcorn kernels
4 tablespoons of oil
3 teaspoons garlic salt
1 teaspoon of Cajun seasoning -- Optional -- (if you don't want it spicy skip this)
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese -- Optional
|I use smart balance; but you can|
use vegetable oil or olive oil.
|Big Pot with lid.|
To begin, you will need a 4 quart pot or bigger you will need a lid. You can use a smaller pot, but you will want to use less popcorn kernels. First add the oil and urn on the burner to medium high. Let the oil heat for 2 - 3 minutes. Then add the popcorn and the garlic salt and the Cajun seasoning.
After that, place the lid on the pot. Please note that the popcorn kerenls will be hot and will pop up. So, proceed with care!! Keep the temperture medium high; you will need a oven mit and and hold down the lid on the pot while you shake the popcorn around the pot. It should take a couple of minutes before the popcorn starts to pop. You do not have to continuous shake the pot; but you don't want the kernels to burn, so keep them moving around.
Then put popcorn into a bowl and as it cools add the Parmesan cheese. Enjoy!!
