Dill & Parmesan Popcorn

One of my favorite snacks is popcorn. There are so many ways to make popcorn, but this one is one of my favorites. I love to serve this up when friends come over to hangout and enjoy a drink or a movie at our house. I have also been known to put some popcorn out before a dinner party along with before dinner drinks. There is nothing so simple, but also so satisfying as popcorn.

My recipe for Dill & Parmesan Popcorn is one I’ve been making for years and had not written down the exact recipe and steps until I needed to do so for this post. My friends who try this popcorn say, “This is REALLY good popcorn,” and I think that is half of the secret – it looks so ordinary and you think you are grabbing a handful of regular microwave-popped popcorn – but ALAS, you are experiencing a very big upgrade. Nothing beats fresh popcorn and you’ll start reaching for popping kernels over the microwaved-bagged stuff before you know it.
