Popcorn Toppings

Posted by on August 17, 2012

The endless number of various popcorn toppings out there make popcorn one of the easiest and most versatile snacks I know. It’s my go-to snack not only for movies and Dr. Who marathons, but also ball games, potlucks and picnics. Everyone loves popcorn and if you can bring yourself to cut down on the butter (I know I sure can’t) it can be a low calorie, high-fiber option for snacking.

For summertime fun, nothing beats a trip to the old ball yard, and in Seattle we’re lucky to have Safeco Field, one of the nicest parks in the country. We’re also fortunate that on most nights you can get in for as little as ten bucks, but as everyone knows the real cost comes inside the park on the expensive food and drink. So to stretch my budget I like to make a big batch of popcorn, toss it with a few different popcorn toppings, put each batch in a paper bag and head down to watch King Felix and the gang. It was the perfect snack to watch the recent historical perfect game and I even had enough money left over to celebrate with a cold adult beverage!

In the recipe below I’ll tell you about some of our favorite popcorn toppings, but these aren’t the only options by any means. We’re always discovering great new spice blends to use as popcorn toppings and would love to hear what your favorite is! Let us know in the comments below and it just may end up in my bag at the next big Mariners game, Go M’s!

Popcorn Toppings

Ingredients

1/2 cup Unpopped Popcorn
1/4 cup Butter, Melted (or more if you want - we won't tell!)
Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. Pop the popcorn, we prefer an air popper for the perfect pop corn every time with nothing to clean up!
  2. Drizzle the butter over the popcorn, tossing to coat
  3. Sprinkle the salt and Ranch Seasoning over the popcorn and toss well.
  4. Enjoy!

Notes

Variations:

You can omit the salt and add 3-4 Tbl of our Bar-H Beef Rub (It sounds a little weird but is always a big hit at our popcorn tastings).

You can omit the salt and substitute one of our Tofu Scramblers, such as the Garlic Herb Tofu Scrambler, Curry Tofu Scrambler, Thai Tofu Scrambler, or Chipotle Tofu Scrambler.

The possibilities are endless! Let us know what fun combinations you've come up with!
