Author: Gemma Stafford
  • cup (60g/2oz) popcorn kernels
  • 3 tablespoons (11/2 oz/45g) butter, melted
  • 4 tablespoons dried cheese (parmesan or cheddar)
  • ¼ teaspoon mustard powder
  • 1 tablespoons , chopped rosemary (dried or fresh)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  1. Put the popcorn kernels in a medium brown paper bag. Roll the top of it closed nice and tight. This will keep in the steam while cooking
  2. Place the bag upright in the microwave and cook for roughly 1 minute 35-50 seconds or until the kernels stop popping at the rate of at least 1 per second. Keep an eye on it (my microwave is 1200 watts so your cooking time may vary depending on your microwave)
  3. In the brown paper bag pour in the melted butter, roll the bag closed and shake it REALLY well. Combine the cheddar cheese powder, mustard powder, choppedd rosemary and salt in a small bowl. Sprinkle over the popcorn while shaking the bag. Roll it back up and shake vigorously. Enjoy immediately!

Recipe Notes

*make sure there are no holes in your brown paper bag
* stay close by the microwave while cooking so you can hear it pop, the popcorn can burn if cooked too long
*Place bag standing upright, not on its side
*store popcorn in an airtight container for 2 days.
