I agree with Bill, this is a great starter recipe with endless possibilities. I doubled the Parmesan cheese and added probably 2 pinches of cumin. Wonderful Bergy. My family eats popcorn at least 2 times/week. I will try the curry idea next. Thanks so much.

All I can say is WOW!! Bergy, made two batches - regular recipe and one using your sugestion of curry powder - amazing!! DH and I love popcorn, so this was a very big hit in our home!! I added a bit more parmesan cheese - love it! I think next time I may try a batch with garlic powder - give it yet another flavour! Yummy! A definite keeper!!

This is a great " Starter recipe ", using Parmesan Cheese as a base, that allows creative cooks to experiment a little each time until it is just right for them.
