For the love of popcorn


 
A teaser from my newest cookbook that will be coming out sometime in May.

What is it about Popcorn that makes it so appealing? Is it the smell wafting through the air beckoning us to have a handful? Is it the fun of watching popcorn as it grows to be over thirty times its original size?  Maybe it is the popping sound as it explodes into something wonderful?  Could it be the crunchy, yet somewhat creamy texture of popcorn?  Is it the pop-able shareable fun?  What is it that has us in love with this simple stuff called popcorn?



 

Cajun spiced popcorn 
4 quarts popped corn

4 Tablespoons melted butter

1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

1/2 teaspoon hot sauce

 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder

1/2 teaspoon smoked paprika

 1/4 teaspoon onion powder

1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

Heat the butter with the spices for about a minute just until it becomes fragrant. You can do this in the microwave if desired
Pour the hot spiced butter over the popcorn and toss to coat.




In case you missed my first cookbook Quick breads made easy from A-Z  I have included a link

  1. This sounds like a fun popcorn recipe to try. We always make air popped popcorn and this would be a great mix to try on it.
