These winter nights are getting colder, and Netflix will be getting a lot more air time. Popcorn is a go-to snack, and for good reason. Not only is it tasty, but it's rich in fiber and polyphenols, which detoxify the body and fight inflammation.
Delicious is it is, popcorn is also a bit of a blank slate, where you can go beyond butter and salt. Ladles and Linens features a whole line of Dell Cove popcorn toppings, some of which are featured below. As you can see, it was impossible to pick just one!
Our family is really big on having movie nights, and lately we've become obsessed with Parmesan Rosemary Popcorn. It's almost like a brittle, and so addictive, the bowl is empty every time. The recipe is almost too easy!
Here's what you need:
- 12 cups of cooked popcorn
- 4 tablespoons of melted salted butter
- 2 cups of grated parmesan
- 2 tablespoons of finely chopped rosemary
- extra salt and pepper to taste
Toss the popcorn, butter and spices in a bowl until well-coated. Then lay flat on a baking sheet, cover with parmesan and pop into an oven that's been preheated to 350 degrees. Bake for 10-15 minutes until the parmesan is a light toasted brown. Remove, let cool, then break apart into pieces.
A true act of love is handing someone a chunk of popcorn held together by crunchy parmesan. That is, if you can give it up. Now grab that weighted blanket, sink into the couch and enjoy!
