Parmesan Popcorn

If you're a parmesan lover, this quick and easy popcorn snack will become a staple in your home!
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 5 mins
Total Time: 10 mins
Servings: 4 servings


  • 3 tablespoons oil - grapeseed, canola, vegetable oil (use a high heat oil)
  • 1/2 cup popocorn kernels
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 2-3 tablespoons butter - melted
  • 1/3 cup finely grated parmigiano reggiano - classic parmesan is fine too
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Set a large pot over medium high heat. Add the oil and salt. Once oil is hot add the kernels. Cover pot with lid. Wearing heatproof gloves or hot pads, carefully shake the pot so that the kernels do not burn. 
  • When the popcorn has finished popping remove from heat. Transfer the popcorn to a serving bowl. Drizzle butter overtop and sprinkle cheese on the popcorn. Toss to coat. Season with salt & pepper.


I used the stovetop method for this recipe. If you'd rather not deal with cooking the popcorn kernels in a pot with oil, you can use an air popper.
