Homemade Parmesan Popcorn

Homemade Parmesan Popcorn

Now that I'm a mom my social life is no longer spent on a bar stool. I look forward to a quiet Friday night at home with my fam and a good movie. No movie night would be complete without popcorn and I'm not talking about the trifold bag or expanding foil ball kid stuff. This fancy popcorn is worth the extra effort and the possibilities are endless. Use your favorite cheese and let the rom coms roll!

3 tablespoons canola or grapeseed oil
1/ 2 cup popcorn kernels
1-2 teaspoons salt, or to taste
3 tablespoons Lucky Layla Butter, melted
3 oz SarVecchio, about 1/3 cup grated 
1-2 tablespoons fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped

Place the oil, popcorn and salt in a large seasoned cast iron skillet. Make a tent with heavy-duty aluminum foil and cut a few small slits in the top. Cook over medium-high heat and shake constantly. Continue shaking until the popcorn finishes popping, approximately 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and carefully remove the foil. Drizzle butter over the popcorn and add grated cheese and parsley. Serve warm.
