Garlic Parmesan Dill Popcorn

Hey everyone! Des from Life’s Ambrosia here! Today I brought this recipe for Garlic Parmesan Dill Popcorn. It’s quick, easy and makes a great snack.

Ryan (my husband) and I like to either watch one of our shows or a movie on Friday and Saturday night after the kiddos have gone to bed. This is also the time we bust out the candy, and everyone’s favorite movie treat: popcorn. Although, it’s not always an easy decision about what kind of popcorn we’ll have. You see, we have a little bit of a popcorn battle that takes place in our house on a weekly basis. To butter or not to butter. I am allllllllll about the butter. My husband on the other hand, would prefer that I leave it off.

Crazy man huh?

Alas, marriage is all about compromise, even when it comes to popcorn. So, instead of loading up on the melted butter like I would prefer to do, I use a little bit of butter but spice things up in other ways. I love to add all kinds of seasonings to my popcorn. I’ll add sriracha or harissa. Sometimes I’ll also add seasoning salt or even truffle salt.

This time though, this time I may have outdone myself. Not one, not two but three different seasonings make this my favorite popcorn creation to date. Even my little guys can’t keep there hands on it. And if it’s adult AND toddler friendly? Well that is a total win.

It couldn’t be easier to put together. Put your popcorn in an air popper and while it’s popping melt your tablespoon of butter and combine the garlic, parmesan, dill and salt together in a bowl. Then once all the popcorn has popped, drizzle with butter and top with seasoning mixture. Easy, peasy, done.

Is Popcorn a Healthy Snack?

Air-popped and eaten plain, popcorn is a healthy whole grain food that is low in calories (about 30 calories per cup) and high in fibre.

Will Popcorn Hurt My Dog?

Popcorn itself is not bad for dogs.

Plain popcorn makes a good occasional treat for a dog.

But, unpopped or partially popped kernels can get caught in a dogs teeth and cause a choking hazard.

It’s best to keep unpopped or partially popped kernels away from your dog.

Why Doesn’t Popcorn Pop?

The main reason that popcorn won’t pop is a lack of moisture.

Old popcorn becomes stale and loses the moisture inside that is required to make popcorn pop.
