Every family has a movie night now and then. I have to admit that our most recent movie night included a viewing of the TV Premiere of Disney’s ‘The Wizards of Waverly Place.’ And yes, I did watch it, despite the fact that I could just blame the kids for having it on, I was right there with them waiting to see if Alex and Justin could save the family. It’s times like these when a nice bowl of popcorn hits the spot.
Now we could just stick a bag in the microwave to address this salty, crunchy need, but we like to do things the two kids way–we make our popcorn in a pot on the stove. Once it’s done, we customize bowls for each muncher, specially seasoned to meet each snackers individual desires. Alex likes garlic salt and Italian seasoning, Sophia likes Old Bay, Aunt Dani prefers Rosemary infused olive oil and salt, while I have a thing for this garlic herb seasoning mix. Whatever popcorn snacking itch you have, this recipe lets you scratch.
Custom Movie Popcorn
1 Tbsp Vegetable or Canola Oil
1/4 cup popcorn
Any of your favorite seasonings
Add the oil to a pot and heat over medium heat. Add 2 or 3 kernels of popcorn to the oil. When these kernels pop, add the remaining popcorn. Make sure to shake the pot while the kernels pop so they don’t burn. When the popping stops, dump the popcorn into a large bowl.
Each snacker can dish up an bowl of popcorn and add their seasoning of choice–then let the munching begin!
