When we partnered with Orville Redenbacher’s we immediately started a list of the recipes we wanted to make. It’s really not hard to think up popcorn recipes because when is something not good with popcorn? We have an addicting Apple Pie Popcorn and the girls’ favorite, White Chocolate Peppermint Popcornbut we needed something savory.

I’ve never been a savory popcorn girl. There was this orange cheddar popcorn I tried as a kid but the fake butter taste was a total turn off for me. Until I tried this Garlic and Herb Popcorn. It was perfectly savory without being harsh.

Cade really wanted to try a cheese popcorn, but I just couldn’t go for it. He won me over with the whole, “but this is the only brand that uses real butter!” I mean, how can you argue with that?

I often tease Cade that he should listen to me because I always win him over with recipes he was afraid wouldn’t taste good, but he’s definitely the winner this time. I’ve eaten my humble pie.

In order to make a good savory popcorn you have to start out with good kernels. We used Orville Redenbacher’s classic Butter popcorn. I added a little rosemary to olive oil on the stove to infuse it with more flavor. Cade handled the popcorn and cheese while I handled the herbs. We work well together.

Infused olive oil always sounds like a pain but it’s really just putting a little herbs in olive oil and letting the oil take on the flavor. In this case I needed it to infuse faster which is why I cooked it on the stove. Heat releases the flavor of the herbs. It’s called blooming and I do it all the time in soups, sauces etc. I’ll throw in the herbs with the fat in the bottom of a hot pan before adding all of the liquids.

Next, just let it cool and then drizzle all over the popcorn with cheese, a little salt and pepper. It’s pretty too, isn’t it?

The best part? It’s all kinds of perfect for watching award shows like the Oscars or movies with your family. I know everyone loves to get out the fancy treats while they watch, but I’m all about food hacks: make it look fancy when it really was so easy to throw together. This took us 5 minutes. Bam! Can’t compete with that annnnnd it’s only 90 calories a serving!

Looking for a popcorn with more of a bite? Try this spicy chipotle kettle corn And make sure to tell us what you think!

We hope that one day we look back and have some of these memories impressed upon our hearts because man, these kids are growing up so fast they are slipping through our fingers and we just can’t hold on.

      • I liked it, my son thought it was okay, my hubby didn’t try it. I think maybe I would adjust the amount of parmesan I used. Maybe I used too much. Thank you. Will try more of your recipes in future.

      • Thank you for the feedback Heather! Parmesan is a strong flavor, so you could totally adjust that to your liking!

  • Is the recipe just as good with dried rosemary?

    • I’ve done it with dried rosemary and it’s not quite as good. It is still tasty though…just cut the amount of rosemary in half.

  • I would go one step further with my last comment and contemplate balsamic rosemary parmesan ROASTED GARLIC potato chips. Sorry for the repeated comments, it’s just the additional thoughts running through my mind at the moment,

    • Ohhhhhhh love that idea!

  • To expand further on my last comment, I don’t know why they don’t sell balsamic rosemary parmesan POTATO CHIPS on the market. I think that would be positively superb.

  • I wonder how a little balsamic vinegar added into this combination might work in the popcorn….just a thought,

  • I love the combination of rosemary and parmesan. That’s a great idea to infuse the oil with the rosemary and then toss the popcorn with the oil. Thanks very much.

    I will post this recipe this weekend on my Reddit Web page at:
