This is a fantastic way to serve popcorn. I used butter-spray and parm cheese, alternating each as the popcorn popped out of the air popper. I can eat a whole bowl without blowing my diet! Every once in awhile I use splenda if I crave sweet. Tastes alot like those you buy at a fest in Germany. Another alternate is garlic salt. You're right about experimenting with different flavorings. I hope others post suggestions on toppings, too. It's an economical snack.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pop the popcorn. It can be any brand, just as long as it's plain buttered, and not anything fancy like kettle popcorn or extra cheesy popcorn.
  2. When the popcorn is ready, carefully take it out of the microwave and pour it into a bowl. Spray the spray butter onto the popcorn, then shake and repeat.
  3. After you've sprayed the butter on - after shaking the bowl, spraying on, and repeating - sprinkle the cheese popcorn seasoning onto the popcorn. Then shake and repeat again.
  4. If the cheese isn't sticking, repeat the shaking and spraying step.
  5. Enjoy! You can also use Parmesan cheese, powdered salad dressing mix, etc. Experiment with your flavors! Just remember the spray butter.
