    This is the culmination of cheap, unhealthy snackfood research. I'm sure someone somewhere has done this. But I'm taking credit.

      This came out good. I used real bacon bits, less salt, and omitted the bacon grease (personal preference).

      Childhood memories!! My parents use to make popcorn this way also with one exception they did not put on the extra butter or bacon bits. My husbands parents also used the bacon grease. It really adds a lot of flavor to the popcorn. William, I can just imagine how much more tasty the butter and bacon bits add.
